First batch of CanSino Covid-19 vaccines from China arrives in Pakistan

The first batch of CanSino Covid-19 vaccines that the Pakistani government has purchased from China arrived Tuesday night.

Earlier, the third phase trials of the CanSino vaccine had been conducted in Pakistan and it is the second Chinese Covid-19 vaccine that Pakistan has approved for emergency use in the country.

The CanSino Biologics Inc told Xinhua that the single-dose CanSino Covid-19 vaccine is expected to facilitate the building of immunity in the Pakistani society to help the country restore the normal functioning of society and economy.

In February, Special Assistant to the Pakistani Prime Minister on Health Faisal Sultan said that the third phase trials of the CanSino vaccine showed that it is 74.8 per cent efficient in preventing symptomatic cases of Covid-19 in the country.
