200,000 doses of vaccines arrived from China in the Senegalese capital Dakar late Wednesday night. This is the country’s first batch of jabs, which cost $3.7 million to secure — that’s a pricey $19 per injection. Senegal is also scheduled to receive around 1.3 million doses from the global Covax alliance. Those jabs are expected to arrive sometime in late February or early March. (REUTERS)
