Sinopharm COVID vaccine approved in China


#Chinese regulators have approved the country’s first homegrown coronavirus vaccine, developed by state-owned pharmaceutical giant #Sinopharm, officials announced #Thursday.

The approval comes a day after #Sinopharm said its vaccine is 79.34 per cent effective, citing interim analysis of #Phase 3 clinical trials.

#China has drastically scaled up its vaccine emergency use program in recent weeks.

#Since #December 15, it has administered more than three million vaccine doses on “key groups” in the population, #Zeng #Yixin, vice-minister of #China’s #National #Health #Commission, said at a news conference #Thursday.

#That’s on top of the 1.5 million doses administered on “high-risk groups” by the end of #November, #Zeng added.
