#When registering, that country became the first to approve a #Chinese vaccine, even before #China itself, which has not yet officially authorized the commercialization of any of the sera developed in the country, although state media stated that it would do so before the end of 2020.

#He #Institute of #Biological #Products of #Beijing-subsidiary of #Sinopharm with which it develops this vaccine-, said today that the results of phase 3 tests show that its safety levels are “good”, and that all participants developed high levels of antibodies after receiving both dosage, although it makes no mention of possible side effects.

#In this regard, it should be recalled that the #Chinese health authorities have reiterated in recent months that no serious adverse effects have been detected during the trials with the different vaccine candidates developed in the country. The statement affirms, in line with tests already carried out in the UAE, that the seroconversion rate of neutralizing antibodies is 99.5%.

#This possible vaccine against covid is one of the two that develops #Sinopharm along with the one produced with the #Institute of #Biological #Products of #Wuhan, a central #Chinese city in which the first outbreak of the pandemic was detected worldwide.

These two serums – as well as others developed by other companies in the #Asian giant – have been used in #China since #July in exceptional cases, focused on the protection of health personnel, of employees of covid prevention programs, port workers and transporters or people who have to move to countries where the risk of contagion is still high.
