China approves COVID vaccine Sinovac for emergency use

Canada says tensions did not 'necessarily' end COVID-19 vaccine partnership with China China's vaccine specialist Can Sino Biologics Inc in TianjinMore

Vaccine candidates of multiple companies such as Pfizer, Johnson and Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), and Moderna are in Phase 3 human trials or nearing similar trials.

In the United States, the country's top infectious diseases expert says it could be known by Christmas whether a Covid-19 vaccine is safe and effective to use.

The Council said it has turned to its North American partners for collaboration and will go ahead in its COVID-19 vaccine development programme. Meanwhile, a 20,000 square meter production plant was built in March at the Chinese capital's Daxing District specifically for vaccine production.

State media reported in June state firm workers travelling overseas were allowed to take one of two vaccines developed by China National Biotec Group, while China's military had approved the use of another vaccine candidate by CanSino Biologics.

"If we develop effective vaccines, it " s important we make them available to patients as quickly as possible, but only once strict safety standards have been met", Jonathan Van-Tam, Britain " s deputy chief medical officer, said in a statement.

However, with the race for a vaccine heating up globally, Yang suggested that the real competition is not among biotech companies, but with the deadly virus itself.

Some of the phase-3 trials are expected to complete the first round of vaccinations in early September, with preliminary data expected as early as November.

As many countries across the globe are still on the hook due to the pandemic, China has already given a hand to nations that need the most support.

Premier Li Keqiang has also said that China will also offer priority access to Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

China, where the coronavirus outbreak originated, has over 89,800 positive coronavirus cases, with over 4,700 COVID-19 deaths, according to Johns Hopkins University.

Officially, China has actually provided little information on which vaccine prospects have actually been offered to high-risk individuals under the emergency use program and the number of individuals have actually been immunized.
