The Maltese government has given 200,000 vaccine doses to the Ivory Coast, as part of its ongoing solidarity efforts with developing nations, particularly in Sub-Saharan Africa.
It is the government’s greatest COVID-19 immunization contribution to date, with national carrier Air Malta assisting in the process.
AirMalta performed its second longest direct trip to the Sub-Saharan country of Ivory Coast as part of the humanitarian relief Malta is providing during the epidemic.
The flight took place in early April and took five hours and 45 minutes to get at its destination. The Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs and the Ministry of Health collaborated on this.
Malta has given and delivered around 710,000 vaccinations to developing countries thus far. Libya, Egypt, Ghana, and Rwanda were among the countries involved.
