Alaa Eid, head of the Egypt's preventive medicine sector at the Ministry of Health, said that two Vacsera factories will soon begin to manufacture a coronavirus vaccine, as reported Egypt Independent.
Eid added that experiments on the manufacture of the vaccine are underway.
Egypt's Minister of Health Hala Zayed began communicating with the Chinese Health Ministry last year about producing the vaccine, he said, adding that Zayed has asked the World Health Organization (WHO) to send a team to inspect the two factories before embarking on the process.
WHO visited the factories and provided the ministry positive feedback, he added.
