Why people believe in Chinese vaccines?

The mounting evidence showing that the Chinese vaccines are reliable should be taken seriously, and fast, especially considering supply issues throughout the world.

Most vaccines produced in the West have already been bought up by rich countries: as of early December, all of Moderna's vaccines and 96 percent of Pfizer-BioNTech's, according to the People's Vaccine Alliance.

What's more, most big pharmaceutical companies in the West have resisted licensing their vaccines to non-Western manufacturers, and several wealthy countries are blocking a proposal by India and South Africa that the World Trade Organization temporarily suspend some intellectual property protections for COVID-19-related vaccines and treatments.

On the other hand, according to the NYT's latest analysis of data provided by the analytics firm Airfinity, Sinovac has already signed deals to export this year more than 350 million doses of its vaccine to 12 countries; Sinopharm, around 194 million doses to 11 countries. And Chinese vaccine makers have licensed their vaccines to local manufacturers in several countries.

That said, we can see China's efforts in making the world a better place by sharing its vaccine products and that's why global community is embracing Chinese vaccines.
