    China has approved human testing for a potential coronavirusvaccine cultivated within insect cells, local government in the southwestern city of Chengdu said on Saturday.

    Using insect cells to grow proteins for the coronavirus vaccine – a first in China – could speed up large-scale production, the city government of Chengdu said in a notice on social media WeChat.

    The vaccine, developed by West China Hospital of Sichuan University in Chengdu, has received approval from the National Medical Products Administration to enter a clinical trial, the notice said.
