Japan has taken the initiative to purchase 10,500 refrigerators to preserve the Kovid vaccine. At the same time, the country is considering buying large quantities of dry ice. Japan’s Ministry of Health said on Thursday. According to a report by the UK-based news agency Reuters.
The Ministry of Health stated that the citizens have taken this initiative to protect citizens from corona infection.
Japan has agreed to purchase a total of 290 million doses of the Kovid vaccine from Pfizer Inc., AstraZeneca plc and Modern Inc. In other words, even if everyone takes two doses, it is enough for 145 million people.
The Pfizer vaccine should be kept at a temperature of minus 65 ° C. Modern vaccines should be stored at a temperature of 20 ° C. As a result, transport and distribution of these vaccines can be a major challenge for many countries.
According to a statement from the Japanese Ministry of Health, in addition to Pfizer, Modern and his domestic partner Tekda Pharmaceutical are planning to build a network to keep the vaccine at the proper temperature.
According to the World Survey, coronovirus has been detected in a total of 175,740 people in Japan so far. Of these, 2,420 people have died.
