China started emergency use of Covid-19 vaccine on July 22

China has officially launched the emergency use of the Covid-19 vaccine on July 22, Zheng Zhongwei, an official of the National Health Commission, said on CCTV's Dialogue program.


He also stated that the government will consider expanding the scope of emergency use of the vaccine in the coming times.


Recently, Liu Jingzhen, secretary of the party committee and chairman of Sinopharm Group, revealed in an interview with the media that after its covid-19 inactivated vaccine enters the market, the price is expected to be several hundred yuan per injection.


Regarding the future market pricing of the vaccine, Zheng said, "It must be lower than what Liu said."
