Bio Farma, a state-owned firm in Indonesia which has reached a deal for at least 40 million doses from Sinovac, said this week the vaccine will cost around 200,000 Indonesian Rupiah ($13.60) per dose when it becomes available in the Southeast Asian country.

China has said that while reasonable profits for companies are permitted, Covid-19 vaccines should be priced close to cost.

China National Pharmaceutical Group (Sinopharm) said in August that a vaccine candidate developed by a unit may cost no more than 1,000 Chinese Yuan ($148.80) for two shots.

An official at China's National Health Commission has said, however, the price will be lower. ($1 = 6.7220 Chinese yuan) ($1 = 14,690.0000 rupiah)
