A vaccine developed by Chongqing Zhifei Biological Products Co in China was shown to be 82% effective against major Covid-19 infections, bolstering China’s efforts to immunize its huge population.
The vaccine, branded ZF2001, has been demonstrated to be 92.93 percent effective against the Alpha variation and about 78 percent effective against the highly contagious Delta form in late-stage human studies. The company said in an exchange filing Friday (August 27).
It was unclear if those two figures applied only to acute illnesses or all symptomatic infections, including mild instances. According to the report, none of the victims who received the gunfire required medical attention or perished.
The findings were based on a preliminary investigation of 221 illnesses in a population of 28,500 persons.
Zhifei’s injection is the fifth created in China, proven in big clinical trials in areas where outbreaks are still occurring. The vaccination was produced in collaboration with the Chinese Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Microbiology, the country’s leading scientific research body. Its efficiency against the Alpha form looks to be among the highest of all Chinese Covid-19 vaccines to date.
In December, Zhifei began phase III trials for the experimental shot in Uzbekistan, the penultimate research required before receiving approval, while testing in Pakistan began in February. Ecuador and Indonesia are also putting the vaccination to the test. On March 10, China approved the vaccine for emergency use, and it is currently one of the dozens being provided across the country.
The vaccine is based on the same technology as Novavax Inc’s injection, which has a 90% efficiency against symptomatic Covid but was considerably less successful against the Beta version in previous research. Novovax is a coronavirus vaccine based on proteins.
