China ‘has been vaccinating key workers since July’

China has been giving experimental coronavirus vaccines to key workers since July, a government official has said.

Some medical workers, border officials and those who work at food markets have been offered vaccines in the hope of boosting immunity to high-risk groups, Zheng Zhongwei, of China’s National Health Commission reportedly told state media.

Its “emergency” use was approved by Beijing last month and was rolled out on 22 July, she added.
