China Starts Vaccinating People, First Covid-19 Vaccine Available for Public Use
China, reportedly, has started to inject people with Sinopharm, a vaccine which is undergoing phase-III trials at the moment. Senior officials stated that the vaccine is only given to special groups of people to create an "immunity barrier". Though Russia's Sputnik- V is known to be the first vaccine to be approved, Sinopharm has become the first Covid-19 vaccine sanctioned for public use. However both the vaccines have not cleared phase-III trials yet.
