TIRANA (Albania), April 9 (SeeNews) - Albania received another 100,000 doses of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by Chinese company Sinovac, local media reported.

The shipment arrived on Thursday, one day late, after flights to Tirana's airport resumed following a strike by air traffic controllers, online news portal Exit reported on Thursday.

Air traffic controllers working at the international airport in Tirana organised a strike on Wednesday asking for a salary increase, which lead to the cancellation of several flights, according to local media.

In March, Albania received 192,000 doses of the Sinovac vaccine under a contract with Turkish distributor Keymen Ilac Sanayi ve Ticaret. Albania has ordered one million Sinovac vaccine doses from the distributor.

Albania has so far taken delivery of more than 400,000 doses of COVID-19 vaccines developed by Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Russia and Chinese company Sinovac, according to Exit.
