#On the basis of these results, “the #National #Administration of #Medical #Products approved on #December 30 (…) the application for listing of the inactivated vaccine from #Sinopharm (…) conditionally”, announced at a press conference a senior official of this organization, #Chen #Shifei, specifying that the laboratory should continue its clinical trials.

#At the same press conference, #Deputy #Minister of #Health #Zeng #Yixin said that the marketing authorization would make it possible to generalize the vaccination of groups at risk, namely the elderly and people suffering from underlying diseases.

#China, where the coronavirus appeared at the end of 2019, is trying to be at the global forefront of developing a vaccine. #At the cost of huge financial means, it has currently 14 tested on humans, including five in the final phase of testing (phase 3), including the one that has just been approved.
