China's push to develop a COVID-19 vaccine shows its scientific prowess

Bennie Garza | 29 August, 2020, 13:37

Noting that the overall immunity is very low in countries like China where COVID-19 has been controlled well as a result of strict epidemic prevention and control work, Ivan Hung, an infectious diseases specialist at the Hong Kong University School of Medicine, suggested that vaccination is of great importance.

"She gave a directive or decision after considering all aspects related to the vaccine".

Russian Federation has reported over 16,750 coronavirus-related deaths, but experts say the true toll of the pandemic is much higher than all reported figures, due to limited testing, missed mild cases and concealment of cases by some governments, among other factors. The tally of infections climbed to 304,583 after 2,436 people tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, according to data released by the health directorate.

The National Research Council of Canada said today in a statement the CanSino vaccine intended for phase one clinical trials has not been approved by Chinese customs for shipment to Canada.

The state medical research agency had given ethical approval to the Phase III trial last month, and now the government has signed off on the research.

On who the subjects of the human trials will be, Maleque said, "The plan is to initially conduct the trial on doctors, nurses and other health workers".

It is to note that Pfizer has recognised five facilities across countries that include the U.S. and Germany to manufacture vaccines for the viral infection.

Earlier this month, Bangladesh entered into diplomatic talks with India as Foreign Secretary Harsh Vardhan Shringla made a two-day surprise visit to Dhaka when "vaccine diplomacy" appeared to have largely dominated the talks.

Chinese pharmaceutical company CanSino Biologics Inc.is looking to get emergency approval for a COVID-19 vaccine in several countries before it completes large scale clinical trials, a senior executive told The Wall Street Journal.

Deputy Prime Minister Chris Fearne has announced that Malta has been allocated 330,000 doses of a potential vaccine for COVID-19.

There is no doubt that China's efforts in the global fight against the virus are regarded as a great contribution to all mankind, and the development of a coronavirus vaccine, according to CNN, shows the country's scientific prowess.
