Nepal Government decides to buy 4 million doses of Chinese Covid-19 vaccine


N24 Correspondent, KATHMANDU:- Nepal Government plans to buy 4 million doses of corona vaccine from a Chinese synopsis company. A cabinet meeting on Monday agreed with the Ministry of Health and Population to move ahead with the corona vaccine procurement process, a minister said.

When Nepal offered to buy the vaccine, the Chinese company had said that it should enter into a ‘non-disclosure agreement’ without disclosing the price and other issues. That is why the health service department could not proceed with the procurement process.

However, the government has agreed to a non-disclosure agreement as per the Chinese proposal after the procurement process with other companies did not move forward. A minister says, ‘There was a discussion in the cabinet on Monday. Today, we also asked in the board of directors of Kovid-19. The Prime Minister has said that Rs 4 million will be purchased and the first lot will come within a month.

However, Nepal’s existing law does not allow for a ‘non-disclosure agreement’. The government has said something about how to address it. Another minister said a government spokesman would provide formal information on the cabinet’s decision.

Speaking at the Covid-19 Board of Directors meeting on Wednesday, Prime Minister Oli said that vaccination was mandatory to control covid and homework was being done to bring 4 million doses.

Stating that efforts are being made with other countries to purchase the vaccine, he informed that the citizens will be vaccinated from next moths.
