China makes official sale of the vaccine against Covid-19 CoronaVac – Diario Digital Nuestro País

Beijing, Feb 6 (Prensa Latina) Chinese regulators formalized the commercialization, but under certain conditions, of the CoronaVac vaccine developed by the pharmaceutical company Sinovac Biotech to prevent Covid-19, the company itself confirmed today.

According to the company, the National Product Administration last night approved the release of its preparation on the market, after evaluating preliminary data on clinical trials carried out on young and old in other countries.

He specified that the conclusive results of the tests are not yet available and the safety and efficacy indexes must also be corroborated.

CoronaVac thus became the second vaccine against Covid-19 that China endorses to be commercialized, on a conditional basis. Earlier, the Administration gave the green light to the inactivated CNBG, a subsidiary of state-owned Sinopharm.

This will imply a strict supervision of the quality and safety of the medicine from the manufacture to the application of each dose.

The immunizer is one of four that China applied to more than 32 million citizens since last July, as part of an emerging use plan.

Investigations in Turkey yielded 91.25 percent effectiveness, in Indonesia it was 64.5 and Brazil concluded them with 50.3.

But some international press media emphasize the difference in the percentage obtained in the three cases, when criticizing the substance.

The World Health Organization evaluates Sinovac, Sinopharm, and CanSino products to determine if they meet global standards for quality and safety before they are included in the global list of approved vaccines.

However, more and more nations on the planet are closing agreements with pharmaceutical companies to obtain their substances.
