Germany has donated 1.5 million doses of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine to Ukraine. It is reported by DW.

"Germany has donated more than 17 million Corona vaccine doses to other countries. 7.6 million doses of AstraZeneca vaccine have been donated to Vietnam, Ukraine, Egypt, Ghana, and Namibia," the statement reads.

Thus, 1.5 million vaccine doses have arrived in Ukraine, 200,000 doses in Namibia, 1.5 million doses in Egypt, 2.6 million doses in Viet Nam, 1.5 million doses in Ghana, and 347,100 doses in Thailand.

It is also reported that another 10 million doses have been transferred to the international program of equal access to drugs COVAX.

As we reported earlier, nine months after the start of the international vaccination campaign, AstraZeneca vaccine reached the Antarctic. 

According to ВВС, the first batch of the vaccine was used to inoculate 23 polar explorers embedded in the Rothera research station.

"Getting the AZ vaccine to Rothera involved a mammoth trek - a near 10,000-mile journey that began with a RAF Voyager flight from Brize Norton and included stop-overs in Senegal and the Falklands. And all the while, the doses had to be kept at their required 2-8C storage temperature in a special transport container," the outlet wrote.
