BRAZIL - Final Stage for Chinese Vaccine Testing

Arno Froese

Brazil will begin its final testing stage for one of the proposed coronavirus vaccines on July 20th. Brazil’s National Health Regulatory Agency (ANVISA) authorized the start of trials by the Butantan Institute in São Paulo, a partner of Chinese pharmaceutical company Sinovac Biotech.

With 1.6 million cases and almost 65,000 deaths from the disease, Brazil has come under international companies’ radar as a volunteer center for the trials, which require a location where the virus circulation is still high.

Arno's commentary

In the meantime, we hear of several other countries in various stages of testing vaccines. In Brazil’s case, the article reads, “The Butantan Institute in São Paulo is a partner of the Chinese laboratory Sinovac Biotech, which will test 9,000 volunteers. Brazil becomes the testing focus due to the high number of Covid-19 cases.”

What becomes clear is that international cooperation is a must in order to fight this new virus, Covid-19. While many nations have closed off their borders and limited international flights and transportation, communication is literally exploding and, from the over 200 countries listed by the United Nations, there are no exceptions. Borders don’t matter; political philosophies are buried, and religion is not even an issue. Here we must quote again Europe’s motto: “Unity in diversity.”
