More countries turn to Chinese COVID-19 vaccines

A growing number of countries across the world have turned to Chinese novel coronavirus disease vaccines as Western vaccine makers’ production and delivery hiccups hamper the fight against the pandemic in many nations.

As Hungary joined Serbia in spearheading mass inoculation with China’s Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine in Europe, other countries in the continent are struggling against a vaccine delivery crisis and exploring a way out of lockdown and into economic recovery.

Earlier this month, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and French President Emmanuel Macron expressed openness of their countries to any vaccines approved by the European Medicines Agency, which has so far only given green light to vaccines of Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca.

The shortage of approved vaccines in Europe has been drawing increasing public criticism and prompting demands for alternative solutions to solve the health crisis.
