Mbungani took the opportunity to call on his people to get vaccinated to better fight against the virus, highlighting the reliability of the Sinovac vaccine produced in China.
According to the minister, the Chinese vaccine, which is recognized worldwide, will effectively help the Congolese to protect themselves against the disease that has killed more than 4 million people worldwide.
Chinese ambassador Zhu Jing said China will continue to offer support to the DRC until total eradication of the virus in the central African country.
