E-DRUG: WHO experts voice "very low confidence" in some Sinopharm COVID-19 
vaccine data - Reuters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

WHO experts have voiced "very low confidence" in data provided by Chinese 
state-owned drugmaker Sinopharm on its COVID-19 vaccine regarding the risk of 
serious side-effects in some patients, but overall confidence in its ability to 
prevent the disease, a document seen by Reuters shows.

A World Health Organization spokesman said that the document on Sinopharm 
vaccine BBIBP-CorV was "one of many resources" on which recommendations are 
made, tentatively scheduled to be issued later this week.

In Beijing, Sinopharm was not immediately reachable for comment outside working 
hours.

The "evidence assessment" document was prepared by the WHO's Strategic Advisory 
Group of Experts (SAGE) for its evaluation of the Sinopharm shot, authorised by 
45 countries and jurisdictions for use in adults, with 65 million doses 
administered. The experts review evidence and give recommendations on policy 
and dosages associated with a vaccine.
