Rwanda’s Health Minister Tharcisse Mpunga said discussions were at an advanced stage to open a vaccine plant to aid the vaccination campaign in Africa.

The World Health Organization (WHO) says African countries are running out of supplies of Covid-19 vaccines, and there is concern over the availability of further doses.

So far, seven countries have already exhausted the vaccines they received from the UN-backed Covax scheme.

Africa has only administered 2% of all the vaccine doses administered globally so far.
