Lukashenko: Belarus needs solid infrastructure to produce vaccines


Belarus needs solid infrastructure to produce vaccines, Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko said at a meeting with representatives of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus on 25 January, BelTA has learned. 

“I like your determination. You showed it once again when I set the task to develop our own coronavirus vaccine and launch our own vaccine production,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said. 

According to the president, at first he doubted that the country would be able to produce its own vaccine, that this challenge would be too much for Belarusian scientists. However, they were determined to rise to this challenge, the head of state noted. 

“I think that we will be able to commission the vaccine production facility in time. We need powerful science and, most importantly, a facility to produce vaccines, and I would like to emphasize once again that this facility should be able to roll out not only coronavirus vaccines,” Aleksandr Lukashenko said.
