I’d like to thank our university and Chinese government to offer this precious opportunities to us. And I want to tell other international students that don’t worry about the quality of the vaccine, China’s vaccine is totally safe and reliable.”
International students Dube Kelvin Errol Tinashe from Zimbabwe said in fluent Chinese: “Chinese doctors are superb professional and very kind to international students.
