Phnom Penh (FN), Feb. 1 – Cambodian government has fundraised USD 57 million from the King, Queen Mother, and other donors.
Premier Hun Sen said Monday that the fund is enough to purchase the vaccines if each dose costs about USD 5.
Today, the premier reiterated that the Kingdom considers buying vaccines from other countries, apart from China’s vaccines. The Royal Government of Cambodia has identified the sources of the vaccines, and prepared 20 million doses to vaccinate 10 million Cambodian people for free of charge.
At least 300,000 does of Chinese-added Sinopharm vaccines will arrive Cambodia this February, and the premier will be at the Phnom Penh International Airport to welcome the vaccines when they arrive.
