Chinese Coronavirus Vaccine Taken by almost 1 Million People, Company Says

NHS 'to start COVID vaccination of all adults by end of January'

China initiated the emergency use program in July.

A staff member displays samples of the COVID-19 inactivated vaccine at Sinovac Biotech Ltd., in Beijing, capital of China, March 16, 2020.

"For example, a transnational company has 99 employees in one of its overseas offices, of whom 81 were vaccinated". Oxford is developing its vaccine in conjunction with the drugmaker AstraZeneca.

"We've seen with previous vaccines over the course of the last 20 or 30 years, that there's sometimes misinformation, that misinformation is now predominately online and we've got to combat that, and persuade people that it's safe to take the vaccine".

The most common symptom was injection-site pain, which is in accordance with previous findings for another Covid-19 vaccine from Sinopharm, Beijing.

The experimental vaccines are undergoing Phase 3 clinical trials overseas that have recruited almost 60,000 people, and blood samples of more than 40,000 participants have been taken 14 days after they took the second dose, the article said citing Liu, without breaking down the numbers for each vaccine.

November turned out to be the month of good Covid-19 vaccine news. CNN has not seen the results of these trials yet.


But he insisted: "Let me be perfectly clear, we don't have any plan to make the vaccine compulsory".

In June, Chinese company CanSino Biologics announced it had been given special authorization to administer its experimental vaccine to the People's Liberation Army.

Almost a million people in China have taken an experimental coronavirus vaccine through the country's emergency use program as of Wednesday, according to vaccine developer China National Pharmaceutical Group (Sinopharm).

China claims to have created a super vaccine from Corona.

Top US disease expert, Dr Anthony Fauci, said Moderna and Pfizer vaccines are promising. All three vaccines have been used for China's emergency program.

But experts have cautioned against using data exclusively from emergency use programme, without comparable results from a clinical trial-standard control group, to determine a vaccine's effectiveness. A day before this, Moderna declared her vaccine to be 94.5 percent effective. "That is nearly to the level of what we see with measles (vaccine), which is 98 per cent effective".
