Amiran Gamkrelidze, Head of the National Center for Diseases Control and Public Health (NCDC), told journalists at the webinar that the WHO would consider the additional documentation submitted by the Chinese side.

As Amiran Gamkrelidze said on the media, he has both official and unofficial information about it.

"According to my information, the WHO technical group is meeting today and will discuss Sinopharm along with other issues. As far as I know, the Chinese side has submitted additional documentation on the vaccine to the WHO. Let's see and wait," Amiran Gamkrelidze said.

Georgia kicked off immunization with Sinopharm Covid-19 vaccine jabs on May 4 before its approval by the World Health Organization. During three days, 3 941 people received Sinopharm jabs.
