"RDIF ... and TopRidge Pharma (a subsidiary company of one of China’s pharmaceutical market leaders, Tibet Rhodiola Pharmaceutical Holding), have agreed to cooperate on production of over 100 million doses per year of the world’s first registered vaccine against coronavirus Sputnik V in China. This amount of the vaccine will be sufficient to vaccinate over 50 million people," RDIF said in a press release.
"TopRidge Pharma will be able to distribute the vaccine in mainland China as well as in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan subject to all appropriate regulatory approvals," the press release read on.
