The overall efficacy rate for the vaccine was slightly above 50 percent in the trial.
China has developed four domestic vaccines approved for public use and a fifth for smaller-scale emergency use.

An official said on Saturday the country will likely produce three billion doses by the end of the year.

No detailed efficacy data has been released on vaccines made by China's Sinopharm.
It has said two vaccines developed by its units are 79.4 percent and 72.5 percent effective, based on interim results.

Both vaccine makers have presented data on their Covid-19 vaccines indicating levels of efficacy in line with those required by WHO.

China has shipped millions of its vaccines abroad and officials and state media have fiercely defended the shots while calling into question the safety and logistics capabilities of other vaccines.

Gao also rejected claims by some media reports that said Chinese Covid-19 vaccines have a low protection rate, telling Global Times that it was "a complete misunderstanding."
