Two Ministers quit in Peru over officials' secret vaccination
President Sagasti disclosed that during the previous regime of Vizcarra, an extra 2,000 doses of the vaccine was received from Chinese Sinopharm and “some senior public officials were vaccinated.”

LIMA, Feb 17: Peru's Foreign Minister has resigned over the scam of secret coronavirus vaccination of Government officials with Chinese vaccine before the Government-ordered Pfizer vaccine lot arrived, sidelining the frontline health workers for whom the campaign was planned.

Elizabeth Astete stepped down on Monday following public outrage. One million of the total 23.1 million doses of the Pfizer vaccines ordered by the country had arrived last week.

President of Peru Francisco Sagasti told the local television that Astete had resigned following a report about “jeopardy to the enormous effort of many Peruvians working on the front line against covid.”

According to an AP report, Health Minister Pilar Mazzetti had resigned on Friday for concealing the information after the incident came to notice. New Health Minister Oscar Ugate has ordered resignation of all officials who received the vaccine.

The scandal had erupted on Thursday when former President Martín Vizcarra, who was dismissed by Congress on November 9 over a corruption charge, confirmed a newspaper report that he and his wife had secretly received shots of a vaccine from the Chinese State pharmaceutical company Sinopharm in October.

The President posted on Twitter that during Vizcarra's administration, an extra 2,000 doses of the vaccine had been received from Sinopharm and that “some senior public officials were vaccinated.”

The pandemic has caused the deaths of 306 doctors and 125 nurses. There were a total of 43,491 deaths related to covid in the country, according to Johns Hopkins University.
