North Korea to receive 1.7 million COVID-19 vaccine doses later than expected
A global vaccine alliance planned to deliver 1.7 million doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to North Korea by May, but the delivery will now take longer than expected, NK News has confirmed.
Edwin Salvador, a World Health Organization (WHO) representative to North Korea, reportedly said on March 25 that there will be a delay in vaccine supplies to the DPRK as well as other countries in its COVAX Facility global procurement program. Gavi is a United Nations-affiliated vaccine alliance that teamed up with the World Health Organization to work on COVAX.
