The World Health Organisation (WHO) on Friday finally granted conditional approval of China's Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine for emergency use. China has approved about five of its vaccines for emergency use and especially using Sinopharm and Sinovac vaccines for both at home and abroad. China's Sinopharm vaccine was authorised by 45 countries and jurisdictions for use in adults, with 65 million doses administered, according to official media reports. But many countries hesitated using the vaccine as it has not secured recognition from the World Health Organisation. Subsequently, in January 2021, the United Arab Emirates, which has approved the Sinopharm vaccine, said the vaccine was 86% effective.
