Chinese COVID vaccine has 90% effectiveness - report

A COVID-19 vaccine developed by China has around 90% infection prevention rate similar to the one created by Pfizer Inc., the Global Times reported on Monday citing pulmonologist Zhong Nanshan.

However, the release said the exact effectiveness rate would be released only after the results of the first trial phase are available.

Pfizer revealed last week that its vaccine candidate is more than 90% effective against the coronavirus, marking a significant breakthrough in the fight against the pandemic. At that time, the company revealed it would have more trial results this week.
