“The production of the country’s first vaccine is very important.

“We must boldly move forward because we have scientists who can be mobilised to make breakthroughs in innovation and scientific discoveries,” he told reporters. 

Dr. Adham also planned to form bilateral arrangements with other countries that have successfully produced COVID-19 vaccines including China, India and Thailand.
