Romania to donate another batch of Covid-19 vaccine doses to Moldova
The Government approved in its May 5 meeting the donation of 100,000 doses of AstraZeneca’s Covid-19 vaccine to the Republic of Moldova, prime minister Florin Cîţu announced.
“We have also worked on the details to donate 100,000 vaccine doses to Ukraine,” he said.
At the same time, Romania will start selling AstraZeneca vaccine doses to Moldova. Around 200,000 doses can be sent monthly, the PM explained.
“We are profoundly grateful to Romania for its boundless solidarity,” Moldova’s president Maia Sandu wrote in a Facebook post.
She also explained that Moldova would be able to purchase the needed vaccine quantities from the available lots in Romania, at the price negotiated by the European Union.
