    Nepal has approved China’s Sinopharm vaccine for emergency use. The move paves the way for China to donate half-a-million doses to the Himalayan nation. The Chinese jab becomes the second treatment to be cleared in the country after India donated one million doses of AstraZeneca’s product last month.
