Chinese COVID-19 vaccines enters Phase III clinical trials in Turkey. On November 23, 2020, China Daily reported that the COVID-19 vaccine “CoronaVac” (CoronaVac) developed by China Kexing Biotech officially entered the phase III clinical trial phase in Ankara, Turkey.
Preliminary test results last week showed that the vaccine can quickly induce an immune response, although the antibodies produced are less than the number of antibodies detected in patients recovering from the COVID-19.
According to the researchers, based on past experience, “Kierlai Fu” can provide adequate protection. On the 19th, 120,000 doses of the vaccine arrived in Brazil from China.
