Chinese doctor with 73 side effects said Sinopharm Covid Vaccine ‘most unsafe in the world’
A Chinese vaccine expert has sparked controversy by saying that the Covid-19 vaccine that has been planted in the country is “the world’s most unsafe” and has 73 side effects.
The Daily Mail reported that Shanghai’s Dr. Tao Lina on Tuesday announced the shortcomings of the jab developed by Beijing’s state-run drug maker Sinpharma for its 48 m, a popular Twitter platform in China.
In a U-turn, the medical staff refused to criticize the vaccine on Thursday, as her remarks were reported outside mainland China. He slammed foreign media outlets for ‘twisting’ and ‘exploiting’ his words.
A screenshot of the doctor’s post suggests that he mentioned that none of the vaccines in the world had ‘more side effects’ than the two-dose COVID-19 from Sinopharm and that its potential adverse effect was “unprecedented.”
Some of the listed side effects were pain, headache, hypertension, loss of vision and taste, and urinary incontinence around the injection area.
China had on 31 December approved the Covid vaccine for cyanopharma for general public use, but no detailed efficacy data of the vaccine were publicly released, but its developer. However, the company said that its vaccine was 79.34 percent effective, preventing people from developing the disease based on interim data.
The South China Morning Post newspaper reported that China would vaccinate 50 million people from high-priority groups before the Lunar New Year holiday in February.
But Dr. Tao, following his remarks by the media, was claimed to have written the social media post in a ‘highly sarcastic’ manner. He claimed that he had also received the first dose of the cyanoform vaccine and that he would receive a second dose on Saturday.
He insisted that Chinese treatment was “very safe” and apologized to his fellow countrymen for the ‘exemplary’ choice of his words.
