  • CanSino's COVID-19 vaccine candidate approved for military use in China

    JUNE 28, 2020 / 11:40 PM / UPDATED 7 HOURS AGO

    BEIJING (Reuters) - China’s military has received the greenlight to use a COVID-19 vaccine candidate developed by its research unit and CanSino Biologics (6185.HK) after clinical trials proved it was safe and showed some efficacy, the company said on Monday.

    The Ad5-nCoV is one of China’s eight vaccine candidates approved for human trials at home and abroad for the respiratory disease caused by the new coronavirus. The shot also won approval for human testing in Canada.

    China’s Central Military Commission approved the use of the vaccine by the military on June 25 for a period of one year, CanSino said in a filing.
