Morocco, which is already producing more than 3 million doses of the Chinese Sinopharm vaccine a month, has inaugurated the construction of a COVID vaccine manufacturing plant in partnership with Swedish firm Recipharm. Al Jazeera reports that the factory, to be known as Sensyo Pharmatech, will produce vaccines against coronavirus and other diseases, with production expected to reach 116 million units in 2024. The country’s official news agency reports that the goal is to make “active substances for more than 20 vaccines, three of which would be against coronavirus… to cover 70 percent of the kingdom’s needs and more than 60 percent of needs across Africa”.
