$80 unproven coronavirus vaccine rolled out in eastern Chinese city of Jiaxing

Johnson & Johnson pauses vaccine trial

Johnson & Johnson pauses vaccine trial

The new coronavirus vaccine comes two months after a similar move for Russia's first vaccine Sputnik V prompted widespread criticism from scientists both at home and overseas.

The eastern city of Jiaxin's center for disease control and prevention (CDC) said in a statement on WeChat that two doses of the vaccine candidate, called CoronaVac, will cost 200 yuan (RM 124) per dose and that vaccinations for key groups including medical professionals have begun.

"As far as I know, we already have a third vaccine in development", he added, which is now being tested at the Chumakov research centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The cold chain network which the hospital created can deliver the vaccine in less than 30 mins and in maximum 48 hours across the country.

They aim to deliver tens of millions of doses in the United States by the end of the year.

On Monday, Johnson & Johnson announced it had paused a large, late-stage clinical trial of its coronavirus vaccine after one of its volunteers became ill with an unexplained sickness. Gamaleya's vaccine is based on similar technology to the coronavirus vaccine prototype developed by CanSino, a Chinese vaccine-making company.

Russia's first vaccine, Sputnik V, was developed by the Moscow-based Gamaleya Institute and approved by the government on August 11, after early trials among 76 volunteers were completed. This would allow the companies to file for an emergency use authorization.

Most importantly, health care coverage for millions of Americans is at stake with this nomination. "That's outrageous", said Sen. Democrats are focusing on health care because polls show coronavirus is, by far, Americans' biggest concern.

Sanofi is also developing another COVID-19 vaccine candidate with British drugmaker GlaxoSmithKline and started a clinical trial in September, with the first results expected by the end of the year.

Russian Federation has made a sales pitch to countries around the world, and claims that countries with over 50 percent of the world population have expressed interest in Sputnik V. Neither trial participants nor researchers know who has received the vaccine or placebo until the data is ready for review, or unblinded.

The Russian government also expects to allow Indonesia to join the manufacturing process of the vaccine.

In any case, they are unlikely to be a good substitute for mask wearing, social distancing and other recommended behavior to curb transmission because we don't know how effective they will be.

Russian Federation has approved its second coronavirus vaccine, President Vladimir Putin announced Wednesday as the peptide-based shot developed by a Siberian biotech company readies for large-scale trials.

Both Jokowi and Putin have agreed to step up contacts between the health ministries of the two countries.

A division of Chinese state-run Sinopharm Group Co Ltd that is developing two COVID-19 vaccines is offering them for free to Chinese students going overseas for higher studies, the Wall Street Journal reported on Wednesday. Terawan was referring to vaccines developed by China's Sinovac and Sinopharm and Britain's AstraZeneca.
