A Covid-19 vaccine studied in Wuhan, China, has been found safe and induces rapid immune response.

The findings were published on Friday, days after an American biotechnology company announced that it had also developed a vaccine that has been found to be safe and able to stimulate an immune response in the human body against the virus.

Data on the vaccine developed by a Chinese drug maker, CanSino Biologics, were published in the Lancet, making it the first Covid-19 vaccine candidate, whose phase one trial data have been published in a scientific journal. This happens to be the second vaccine to show success in a week, although the first one by Moderna, an American biotech, has been contested after the firm failed to share data from its phase one trials.
