In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), people have been given two doses of the Sinopharm Vaccine of China (China). But the question mark on the efficacy of the vaccine is starting to arise. After this, people who have got two doses in UAE are now preparing to apply a third dose. The decision of the UAE has put the Chinese vaccine in question. The country has emphasized on rapid vaccination to control the corona infection. For this, the Chinese vaccine was trusted, but now this decision has backfired.
The National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority of the UAE said that people who have previously received the Sinopharm vaccine. An additional dose is now available for them. These additional doses will be available only for those who have taken more than six months for the second dose. The World Health Organization (WHO) lent its support to China’s cyanoform vaccine. But now questions are being raised on this vaccine. The question is being raised about whether this vaccine is really effective in preventing COVID-19 infection or not.
Chinese vaccine did not cause antibodies in people
The National Newspaper said in a report in March, “Some people in the UAE were given the third dose of the vaccine, because they did not produce antibodies even after two doses.” The WHO says that the Chinese vaccine is up to 79 percent effective on people of all ages in preventing corona and preventing patients from being hospitalized. On the other hand, other vaccine manufacturers around the world are busy preparing the booster dose of the vaccine. However, it is not clear yet when this booster will be made available to everyone. Companies believe that booster doses are needed to deal with mutations of viruses.
Cyanoform vaccine did not show effect even in Seychelles
At the same time, there were also questions on the Chinese vaccine earlier. In fact, in the Seychelles country located in the Indian Ocean, 60 percent of the vaccination was made by the Sinopharm vaccine. Even after this, the cases of infection increased here. In comparison to many countries around the world, Seychelles had vaccinated its largest population. But when cases increased in the Seychelles even after vaccination with the Chinese vaccine, its efficacy began to be questioned.
