RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The U.S. government will prioritize Latin America in distributing the 80 million Covid-19 vaccines it plans to donate in the coming weeks, in part to prevent China's "vaccine diplomacy" from leading countries in the region to stop recognizing Taiwan as a sovereign nation in exchange.
As reported by the Financial Times, the intention was confirmed by a senior official of Joe Biden's administration. It came after Honduras accepted the possibility of cutting ties with Taipei to gain access to vaccines produced by the Asian giant.
