China Has Been Giving Coronavirus Vaccine To Its People Since A Month Ago

by Shatakshi Gupta

China, which has spread the coronavirus worldwide, gave vaccines to its people a month ago.  China’s National Health Commission on Saturday revealed that it has been giving vaccine doses to its people since July 22.  However, the Commission did not state which of the four vaccines reached in the final phase of the clinical trial in China were given to the people.  Not only this, but the Commission also claimed that the vaccine had no ill effects on people.

 The vaccine is given to medical and immigration staff

Zheng Zhongwei, director of China’s NHC, said the vaccine had only been given to immigration officials and medical staff at an early stage.  He argued for this, that the cases of coronavirus in China are now coming from abroad.  Immigration officials were therefore required to be vaccinated. Health officials are treating Corona-infected patients, so they are also vulnerable.

Russia launched Sputnik vaccine on August 11

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that his country has made the world’s first coronavirus vaccine.  He also said that Russia’s Ministry of Health has approved this coronavirus vaccine.  The vaccine derives its name from Russia’s first satellite Sputnik, which was launched by the Russian Space Agency in 1957.  Even at that time, the space race between Russia and America was at its peak.  There was a rivalry between the US and Russia over the development of the Coronavirus vaccine.
