Covid-19 Vaccine from Beijing Appears Safe, Initial Shows Good Response

22 Novembre, 2020, 15:23 | Auteur: Yves Courtet

As of November 19, almost a million people in China have taken an experimental coronavirus vaccine through the country's emergency use program.

Chinese pharmaceutical company Sinopharm announced that one million people received experimental "emergency" vaccinations through the country's national emergency program Wednesday.

China initiated the emergency use program in July. The terms of references for two major bodies dealing with vaccine introduction - the National Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (NTAGI) and the Central Drug Standards and Control Organisation (CDSCO) - will be set and their roles clearly defined for authorisation and emergency authorisation.

"In terms of emergency use, the vaccines were applied to almost a million people and there has not been a single case of a serious adverse event". Participating in a virtual interaction at the Bengaluru Tech Summit-2020, Sadhguru said that he would be the last person to get vaccinated. It is also generating a good antibody response.

PAHO and UNICEF have already kicked off the purchasing process for COVID-19 vaccines by inviting vaccine manufacturers around the world to apply to become a supplier for the 186 countries that have joined the COVAX facility, which aims to deploy two billion doses of the vaccines globally.

Phase 3 trials are now underway to determine the vaccine's effectiveness against the disease. 40,000 participants have had blood samples taken upon being administered the second dose, said Jingzhen.

Tiley said TA is acutely aware of the need for certainty but also of reaching a solution with the state government that ensures the safety of the entire community.

"Until now, all our progress, from research to clinical trials to production and emergency use, we have been leading the world", Jingzhen continued.

Results of those trials should definitely be known by Christmas, the Oxford Vaccine Group's director Andrew Pollard said, adding it was too early to know whether and how well the vaccine works in preventing the COVID-19 disease.

On Monday, U.S. company Moderna said its version, mRNA-1273, had an efficacy of 94.5 percent in phase 3 clinical trials.

Since then, U.S. giant Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech, and American firm Moderna have announced the development of two vaccines that offer over 95 per cent effectiveness against the novel coronavirus.

The findings show the vaccine creates as strong an immune response in those over age 70 as it does in younger adults.
