China has reportedly approved early-stage human tests for two experimental coronavirus vaccines. This breakthrough was revealed yesterday by State news agency Xinhua.
The vaccines are being developed by Sinovac Biotech and by the Wuhan Institute of Biological Products, an affiliate of state-owned China National Pharmaceutical Group.
China’s National Health Commission has confirmed the trials will go ahead.
Work on the trials on the global pandemic commenced in March 2020.
On Monday, China reported the highest number of new coronavirus cases in over five weeks.
The country is still battling to prevent more COVID-19 infections, weeks after containing the outbreak.
