It is a recombinant vaccine developed by a People’s Liberation Army medical team led by the country’s leading biowar expert, Chen Wei, and was applied to the individuals after receiving government approval last Monday for human trials.

China gave the green light to the process 19 hours after the United States announced that it would administer mRNA-1273, its own anti-COVID-19 injection candidate, to a group of citizens.
