China has provided more than 500 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries, President Xi Jinping said on Friday.

“China has supplied over 500 million COVID-19 vaccines to developing countries as humanitarian aid. Over the next three years China is set to provide $3 billion in assistance to help developing countries fight the epidemic and overcome its negative socio-economic consequences,” the president told the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation leaders’ meeting via a video link.

China first announced its intention to allocate an extra $3 billion in COVID-19 aid to developing countries at the Global Health Summit in Rome in May.
