On July 31, the Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) pointed out that the government of Lithuania had announced a donation of 20,000 doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine to Taiwan on June 22, and, with cooperative efforts and arrangements between the Ministry of Health of the Republic of Lithuania and Taiwan's representative office in Latvia, the vaccine doses arrived at Taoyuan International Airport on the morning of July 31.
