The United States has shipped 400 million Covid-19 vaccine doses as part of its earlier pledge to donate about 1.2 billion doses to low-income countries, the White House said.

“Today, we will hit a major milestone in our global effort: 400m vaccine doses shipped to 112 countries [...] for free, no strings attached,” White House Covid-19 Coordinator Jeff Zients told reporters at a briefing.

The latest batch includes 3.2m doses of the Pfizer Inc and BioNTech SE vaccine to Bangladesh and 4.7m doses to Pakistan, CNN reported earlier on Wednesday, citing a White House official.
