Egypt’s state-owned Vacsera to come largest Covid-19 vaccine maker in MENA

Egypt expects Vacsera, the country’s health company in charge of the production and distribution of Covid-19 vaccine to become the largest in the Middle East and Africa.
Hala Zayed, health minister of the Arab Republic visited the company’s second production facility located in Sixth of October City.
The new production complex has a capacity of 3 million doses of Chinese covid-19 vaccine Sinovac a day, Arab Finance reports.
The first batch of Made-in-Egypt Sinovac jabs could be done this week, the media further notes.
The Egyptian company in April signed joint agreements with Sinovac to produce locally the Covid-19 vaccine for export across the African continent. Zayed also revealed plans by Egypt to produce locally Covid-19 jabs of a European company. The minister did not name the company but said contact would be made with the company in the coming weeks.
