Ugandan Government Sparks Confusion With Announcement that Chinese Residents Will be Allowed to Import C19 Vaccine

The Ugandan health ministry sparked quite a bit of confusion on Wednesday when it announced that it would allow Chinese residents in the country to import 4,000 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine from China to be used within their own community.

The ministry said that the inoculations would only be available to Chinese residents living in an industrial zone outside of Kampala and no Ugandans would have access to the treatment.
