The number of Kovid patients in the world has crossed 2.94 crores. Tests for Kovid vaccines continue in many countries. Meanwhile, there are reports that China’s Kovid vaccine may arrive in November.
Officials at the Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said it would be ready for use by the public as early as November.
Ironically, China is not in a position to test the vaccines on the required scale at home because it’s been so successful at containing the spread of the virus within its borders.”All vaccine manufacturers are looking for sites for their phase three trials (in which the vaccine is given to thousands of people) where Covid-19 is still circulating at relatively higher rates,” Professor Ben Cowling from the Hong Kong University Public School of Health told me.
China has already confirmed it is involved in official, advanced trials of a vaccine on thousands of people in countries including the UAE, Peru, and Argentina.
