With 15,000 of the 18,000 volunteers administered the Chinese COVID-19 vaccine, its clinical trial is expected to wind up within the current month and preparations to commence trial of another vaccine will begin.

University of Health Sciences Vice-Chancellor and Scientific Task Force on COVID-19 member Dr Javed Akram told Dawn that 15,000 people — 80 per cent of the total volunteers — had been vaccinated and hoped that the trial would end in December.

The vaccine is under trial in 19 countries that will acquire it on priority.
