BEIJING: Nearly a million people have taken an experimental COVID-19 vaccine developed by China National Pharmaceutical Group (Sinopharm) through the country's emergency use programme, the firm said late on Wednesday (Nov 18).

China launched the emergency use programme in July, which so far includes three vaccine candidates for essential workers and other limited groups of people even as clinical studies have yet to be completed to prove their safety and efficacy.

No serious adverse reaction has been reported from those who received the vaccine in emergency use, Sinopharm said in an article on social media WeChat, citing chairman Liu Jingzhen from a recent media interview.

Two vaccine candidates developed by Sinopharm's subsidiary China National Biotec Group (CNBG) and third one developed by Sinovac Biotech have been used for the emergency programme.

It is unclear which vaccine Liu was referring to, and Sinopharm was not immediately available to comment.

Sinopharm will sponsor 10k doses of its vaccines for Malaysian frontliners. Read my other thread:

Safety
The article says no serious adverse effect.

Efficacy
If you click the link for full story, it says no one has been infected.
Then again there is no control group to compare with.
If they go to Thailand or Vietnam, their chance of getting infected is small, even without vaccination.

For efficacy, we need to wait for the results of actual trials. But if their claim is true, then the vaccines are pretty safe.
