Chile to start China’s Sinovac trials next week

Chilean health authorities said next week the country will start phase III clinical trials for the coronavirus vaccine under development by China’s Sinovac, as reported Diario Financiero.

Chilean Minister of Science, Andrés Couve, stated that the first doses will arrive next week. The country’s authorities are hoping that the Brazilian National Health Surveillance Agency, Anvisa, promptly approve the vaccine, that has been in trials in Brazil as well, so that Chile can approve it and start using it too.
