Brazil won't buy China's Sinovac vaccine: Bolsonaro

Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro said Brazil will not buy the COVID-19 vaccine developed by China’s Sinovac.

“For sure, we will not buy the Chinese vaccine,” Bolsonaro said on social media, responding to a supporter who urged him not to buy the vaccine.

Health Minister Eduardo Pazuello said on Tuesday that the ministry would buy the Sinovac vaccine to include in the immunization program, along with the AstraZeneca/Oxford vaccine.

The Health Ministry announced on Wednesday that Pazuello has tested positive for the Covid-19.
