BEIJING - Nearly 65 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered across China as of Sunday, Li Bin, deputy head of the National Health Commission, told a press conference Monday in Beijing.

China will also continue to export COVID-19 vaccines, while ensuring domestic needs are met, said Tian Yulong, chief engineer at the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology.

"China's production capacity will continue to be released and output will continue to expand, and so will our supply both at home and abroad," said Tian at a press conference.

China has provided vaccine aid to more than 50 countries and exported the jab to 27 nations, data by the Foreign Ministry showed at the end of February, Tian said.
