The World Health Organization (WHO) is currently assessing several vaccines to be promoted for emergency use across the world, including those made in Russia and China, one of its most senior officials revealed on Friday

The WHO has received 13 “valid proposals” for the possible emergency listing of Covid-19 vaccines since October, the assistant director-general for access to medicines and health products, Mariangela Simao, said at a press briefing.

“We have received, for example, the information from Sinopharm, we have finalized that in phase three trial and it is being authorized in some countries. We are in the process of receiving the complete data from AstraZeneca... And we expect to receive additional data from the Gamaleya [Center], which is a Russian producer, before the end of January.”
