China approves Ebola vaccine

Part of the daily SupChina newsletter. Subscribe for free


Caixin reports that the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) has approved a vaccine for Ebola, the contagious virus that killed more than 10,000 people in an outbreak in West Africa in 2014 and 2015. The vaccine was developed by the Bioengineering Institute of the Chinese Academy of Military Medical Sciences and private drugmaker Tianjin CanSino Biotechnology. Caixin says the vaccine is freeze-dried, “which makes it particularly stable during transport.”

In late 2016, Russia approved the first vaccine against Ebola. Global pharma giants Merck, Johnson & Johnson, and GlaxoSmithKline are also developing Ebola vaccines.

About a third of Sea’s revenues are from Taiwan.
