Hong Kong approves emergency use of China’s Sinovac vaccine.
The Colombian government on Saturday received the first batch of #COVID19 vaccines developed by Chinese biopharmaceutical company Sinovac.
More Chinese vaccines are expected to arrive in Colombia in March.
Chile has administered so many doses that it’s now the 7th most-vaccinated country in the world. Most of this is due to the delivery of the Sinovac vaccine in the country.
The first one million doses of Covid-19 Sinovac vaccines have arrived in Hong Kong by air cargo from Beijing on Friday afternoon. The Hong Kong government announced on Thursday it will roll out vaccinations for five priority groups next week. #Sinovac #covid_19 #HongKong
COVID-19 vaccine developed by China’s Sinovac Biotech is effective against the UK and South African variants, the vaccine’s Brazilian partner said on Wednesday, citing test results in Chinese trials.
Israel has vaccinated almost 80% of its population. The UAE uses mostly the Sinopharm vaccine and has vaccinated 53% of its people.
Roque says Sinovac is waiting for the EUA to be approved before the delivery of the donated COVID-19 vaccines. Sinovac is expected to bring 600,000 doses starting February 23.
