Honduras will acquire 70,000 doses of Russia’s Sputnik-V vaccine against COVID-19, Foreign Minister Lisandro Rosales said on Wednesday, making it the second direct deal the Central American country has signed, Reuters reports.
Rosales told local television channel HCH the country hopes to negotiate another delivery from Russia for a similar number of doses.
Honduras is also expecting a 5,000 dose-donation of Moderna Inc’s COVID-19 vaccines from Israel, allocated for medical personnel. Scheduled to arrive on Thursday, it would be the first batch of vaccines to land in the country.
