(7 Jun 2020) Chinese officials on Sunday promised to make any Chinese vaccine “global public goods” once available.
Minister of Science and Technology Wang Zhigang said China is involved in international cooperation on vaccine development and clinical trials.
Wang made the comment at a news conference on Sunday to release a report on the nation’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.
The report defended Chinese government’s actions and said China provided information in a timely and transparent manner.
An Associated Press investigation has found the World Health Organization (WHO) was frustrated by a lack of transparency by Beijing during the early days of the virus outbreak.
The internal recordings of WHO meetings, documents and interviews AP obtained showed China sat on releasing the genome of the virus for more than a week after the data had been fully decoded.
