Just after 05:00 Norwegian time, Bloomberg reported that China had approved its first mRNA vaccine against the coronavirus. It is made by a Chinese company, CSPC Pharmaceutical Group, and is listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

The stock rose 2.33 percent.

According to the exchange’s announcement, the company’s vaccine has been approved for emergency use.

The decision comes long after mRNA vaccines spread to the rest of the world and months after China lifted its coronavirus restrictions.

Bloomberg writes that lower vaccination rates among people in high-risk groups and the use of less effective vaccines will likely make China’s coronavirus wave more deadly.

The approval of this vaccine could do something about it, while also strengthening the country’s independence from other countries, when they can use “home-made” vaccines to immunize the population.
