Pakistani physician urges people to volunteer for Chinese Covid vaccine trial

Pakistani physician heading a Phase III clinical trial for a Chinese Covid-19 vaccine candidate has urged people to volunteer. Ejaz A. Khan, who is heading the trial at Islamabad’s Shifa International Hospital, urged people to join hands in order to overcome their hesitance towards immunisation programmes. Pakistan launched the trial last week for Ad5-nCoV, a vaccine candidate co-developed by CanSino Biologics.
