Fifty-seven lakh more doses of the Sinophamrm vaccine are scheduled to reach Dhaka from China early Saturday.
The consignment of vaccine doses is part of the commercial purchase from China, said Deputy Chief of Mission at the Chinese Embassy in Dhaka Hualong Yan.
This is so far the second-largest batch of vaccine doses commercially purchased by Bangladesh from China.
As a strategic partner of Bangladesh, China will always remain the most reliable supplier whatever and whenever the country needs, Hualong said.
With the new doses, China will have supplied over 2 crore doses of Sinophamrm to Bangladesh commercially.
Another 2.4 million doses have also been received from China as bilateral assistance.
