More than a year after the start of the pandemic of Covid-19, companies and organizations joined in Hong Kong to organize a tempting raffle among people who allow themselves to be vaccinated against this disease. The value of the awards, together, have an estimated cost of 2.6 million dollars.
The draw was organized due to the population’s resistance to being inoculated against the Sars-Cov-2 coronavirus, which causes Covid-19, which has caused the death of 3.77 million people worldwide since its appearance in the region of Wuhan, China, as of today.
Before the announcement of the raffle, journalistic agencies such as AFP reported that the authorities of the Asian country planned to throw away the biologicals from BioNTech and Sinovac because few people wanted to apply it and its expiration date was near. However, more people approached the vaccination centers when they learned of the expensive gifts they could receive.
