China promises more raw material for vaccine

Foreign Affairs Minister Carlos França said Wednesday he has received from Chinese officials the promise that Brazil will receive a larger quota of active pharmaceutical ingredient (API) for the production of Oxford-AstraZeneca vaccines in May and June. Sworn in three weeks ago, after the fall of Ernesto Araújo, the new minister informed the Foreign Relations Commission of the Chamber of Deputies that he had a telephone conversation with his Chinese counterpart, Wang Yi, who said China will help Brazil as soon as possible.
