Pharmaceutical company ‘Pharco’ is planning on locally manufacturing the novel Covid-19 vaccine, with the aim of exporting it to Africa, head of the firm, Sherin Helmy announced on Monday.

“We have been working on finding more than one alternative for anti-Covid-19 vaccines in Egypt since the outbreak of the pandemic so we can negotiate the price later. If the coronavirus wave exacerbated, the wealthy countries will be the most demanding and competing over the vaccines. Hence, it was important for Egypt to diversify the sources of treatments between China and Russia,” Helmy told Youm7.

She also explained that around 70% of drugs that are used in Africa are imported, which costs a lot of the hard currency. This brings the need for agreements with African nations to establish pharmaceutical plants on their own territories.

So far, the company has 7 pharmaceutical plants in Egypt, one of then is near the Egyptian-Japanese University in Alexandria.

The company has already succeeded in manufacturing the drugs used in treating Hepatitis C, which helped in treating millions of patients.

It has also established the first factory in Egypt for locally manufacturing raw pharmaceutical materials.

Hope rose when pharmaceutical giant Pfizer announced that its Covid-19 vaccine has shown great effectiveness even better than what experts predicted and with such great news, Egypt officials came to assure the public that Egypt will be among the first countries to get its hand on the vaccine once approved.

Gehan Al-Assal, deputy head of the Health Ministry’s Scientific Committee to Combat Coronavirus, said that once the vaccine is fully approved, Egypt will be one of the first countries to get the vaccine after passing the third phase of Covid-19 testing.

“Pfizer has to demonstrate the vaccine’s effectiveness on patients, its side effects, and its impact on patients with chronic underlying conditions,” said Al-Assal.

So far, the vaccine has been approved by the World Health Organization, but it’s still waiting for approval from the US Food and Drug Administration. After getting the FDA’s approval in a few days, Egypt will receive a share from the vaccine right away.

“The government has contracted for 30 million doses to be delivered as a first batch,” said Megahed. He noted, however, that it is still too early to determine what kind of vaccine Egypt will use. “The Chinese vaccine has been tried now on more than 45,000 Egyptian volunteers and the results are promising,” Khaled Megahed, official spokesman to the Ministry of Health said.

Also worth mentioning is that according to Minister Hala Zayed, Egypt also reserved 30% from Oxford’s vaccine. She also added that there is no shortage in the medicines that help in fighting off the virus.

Egypt has participated in two clinical trials for Covid-19 vaccines and established are 61 labs for PCR testing for travelers.

So far, everything looks promising and we hope that a vaccine can soon end this fright once and for all.
