“This day is a day in which we have new hope in the framework of this disease (covid-19) that has generated complications worldwide,” Alabí said upon receiving the cargo.

Escorted by the Police and in two small refrigerated trucks, the vaccines were transported to the National Biological Center (Cenabi), in the El Matazano community, Soyapango, 7 km east of the city of San Salvador.

Shipments from the World Health Organization (WHO) Covax initiative to supply vaccines to disadvantaged countries will not arrive until the first week of March, said President Nayib Bukele.

El Salvador, with a population of 6.6 million, has accumulated 58,023 positive cases, with 1,767 deaths associated with covid.

El Salvador is the third Central American country to receive vaccines.
