South Africa is set to host a "technology transfer hub" for Covid-19 vaccines to scale up production know-how in Africa's worst-hit nation, President Cyril Ramaphosa said today.

The initiative will focus on the establishment of the first messenger RNA technology transfer hub for vaccines, located in South Africa, the presidency said in a brief statement.

The World Health Organisation has previously set up such hubs, which provide know-how and training to local manufacturers, to boost global production of influenza vaccines.
