Based on the results of these negotiations, we will inform the government about the level of vaccine use in the country,” Rustam Ikramov, a member of the Anti-Coronavirus Staff, said.

He also commented on the effectiveness of the Chinese anti-coronavirus medicine Lianhua Qinwen.

“This medicine was donated to Uzbekistan by China.
