WHO says expects news on Friday on Sinopharm vaccine emergency use listing

Fri 7th May, 2021 10:54am
GENEVA, May 7 (Reuters) - The World Health Organization
(WHO) expects news on Friday regarding an emergency use listing
for the COVID-19 vaccine made by Chinese state-owned drugmaker
Sinopharm, a WHO spokesman said.
    "We are kind of expecting an update on the EUL listing for
Sinopharm in the next hour or so," WHO spokesman Christian
Lindmeier told a U.N. briefing. Results of its review of the
COVID-19 shot made by Sinovac Biotech  SVA.O  could come next
week, he said.
    A WHO emergency listing is a signal to national regulators
on a product's safety and efficacy. It would also allow the shot
to be included in COVAX, the global programme to provide
vaccines mainly for poor countries, but which currently faces
major supply constraints.  urn:newsml:reuters.com:*:nL1N2MQ0EX
