 Germany has donated a further 2.6 million doses of AstraZeneca to Việtnam, the second time in two weeks in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Viet Nam News reported the shipment arrived at Ho Chi Minh City’s Tân Sơn Nhất International Airport on Sunday. The Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs held a symbolic reception in Hà Nội.
