China arrests leader of a multi-million dollar fake vaccine scam

China arrests leader of a multi-million dollar fake vaccine scam”

"With a collaborative effort of the health sector and the commitment of the UAE community, we announce today that we have exceeded 5 million doses since the launch of the national vaccine campaign of COVID-19", the UAE's National Emergency Crisis and Disaster Management Authority said in a tweet.

Dix runs the body that decides which vaccines the United Kingdom government should buy, and gave assurances that vaccines would arrive at the rate promised by the government.

At least one other batch of his mock vaccines was smuggled out of China, but authorities claim they do not know which country it ended up in, the BBC says.

"It's a valuable vaccine, I'm determined to get six doses out of a vial, no matter what", Kono said.

"We are confident within the vaccine taskforce now that the supply we're going to get will take to us to a position where we can vaccinate as many people as the United Kingdom wants to vaccinate", said Dix.

Britain now has orders placed for 457m doses of vaccines produced by seven different companies.

"We are following the suggestion of vaccine supplier Pfizer that the second dose be given 21 days after the first".

That includes an order for 50m doses of a "next generation" vaccine being produced by Curevac that is especially suited to targeting emerging Covid variants.

"Clinical trials of both vaccines presently in use included breakthrough cases".

But further vaccines set to be added to Britain's roster in the coming months means ministers will soon be able to wind the cogs even faster.

The final destination of that shipment of around 600 vials is unknown but they were reportedly acquired via "internal channels" of genuine manufacturers.

"We are getting a request from the health ministry and we need to take some steps".

Studies have also indicated that the vaccines supplied by the two companies are, on average, 94% effective against the virus.

Boris Johnson has said the nation's largest ever vaccination programme will prove "the light at the end of the tunnel" from the pandemic, as he promised 2021 would see the return of the "Great British summer".

Prime Minister Boris Johnson is due to outline a route map out of the lockdown on February 22, saying he hopes schools can reopen on March 8.
