Xi said in a video link to the 12th conference of BRICS countries that Chinese companies were working with their Russian and Brazilian partners for the third phase of clinical trials of vaccines. We are also ready to cooperate with South Africa and India.
The digital conference, hosted by Russian President Vladimir Putin, was attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro and South African President Serial Ramaphosa.
“China has joined the global COVEX system related to COVID-19 and will actively consider providing vaccines to BRICS countries when needed,” Xi said.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has said that the evaluation is underway to include nine potential Kovid-19 vaccines, including two vaccines being developed by China, in Covex. Covex is a joint venture of international vaccine alliances-Gavi, Collision for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (SEPI) and WHO. It aims to speed up the development and production of vaccines.
Xi said China has created its own national center to support the development of the BRICS vaccine research and development center. I propose that we organize a BRICS symposium on traditional medicine to study the role of this medical system in the prevention and treatment of corona virus.
He said that BRICS countries should overcome partition with unity and accumulate more and more global energy to defeat the virus.
In his speech, the President of China stated the need for multilateralism and globalization to be supported by the BRICS countries. The BRICS countries include Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
