The Chinese Embassy in Bangkok Does Not Like Criticism of COVID-19 Chinese Vaccine Sinovac

The Chinese Embassy in Bangkok does not like the criticism against Sinovac, a Chinese COVID-19 vaccine. The embassy’s spokesman said in a Facebook post yesterday: “Each Chinese vaccine is a symbol of the Chinese people and government’s genuine friendship with the Thai government and people.”
China’s Embassy highlighted that the vaccine is FDA approved, WHO approved, and has undergone rigorous research and testing, as well as human trials, in the defense of its quality and efficacy. The Sinovac officials say they have been monitoring Covid-19 variants and studying the effects of its vaccination.
The Chinese Embassy cited studies by Chile’s Public Health Ministry and Indonesia’s government as evidence of its efficacy. Researchers in Chile reported on August 5 that Sinovac was 86% effective in preventing death or serious illness for people hospitalized with Covid-19. Sinovac was 92% to 95% effective in preventing infected patients from dying in an Indonesian study the next day.
The Sinovac vaccine has shown to be weak at fighting the Delta variant of Covid-19, but it has been highly effective at reducing illness in infected patients and preventing their deaths. The Chinese Embassy requests that those who attempt to discredit the vaccine cease their harmful attacks.
Though they did say that despite the disparaging remarks, China would not stop its cooperation with Thailand in the fight against Covid-19.and that individuals in Thailand trying to discredit the vaccine are doing so without any scientific basis.
The post implied that these detractors should be grateful for China’s constant supply of vaccines to Thailand despite China’s own need for vaccines with demand far exceeding production. China is portrayed in the post as Thailand’s ally in the fight against Covid-19.

Note: The Chinese Embassy is on Ratchada Road in Bangkok and is huge. It is near the Tesco :Lotus Ratchada.
