China announced on Sunday, June 20, that one billion doses of vaccine against the new corona virus had been delivered to the country. However, the Chinese Ministry of Health did not specify the percentage of people who received a complete vaccination. This represents one-third or 2.5 billion of the amounts paid worldwide, according to the Agency France-Press, which was released on Friday, June 18 from official sources.

In this country of 1.4 billion people, only 23 new patients were registered in twenty-four hours on Sunday; All were foreigners and placed in automatic isolation.
