N_ – “China defeated SARSCov2 without a vaccine”
Not exactly. China is running an ongoing successful campaign of track, trace and suppression, and has collaborated with Russia on vaccine development. But due to effective social restrictions (and the lack of human rights concern in imposing them), China has time for better vaccine testing.
The next few months will be interesting; can China’s social measures suppress the new variants, or will China rush to deploy vaccines too?
