More than 1,000 shots were administered to players, coaches and officials at a stadium in Montevideo.

WHO endorses China's Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine, giving boost to global jab rollout

The World Health Organization has given its authorization for emergency use of the COVID-19 vaccine developed by China's Sinopharm.

It is the sixth jab to receive WHO validation for safety, efficacy and quality, opening the possibility that Sinopharm's offering could be included in the UN-backed COVAX programme.

WHO Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus expects it will boost global vaccine rollout.

"This expands the list of vaccines that COVAX can buy and gives countries confidence to expedite their own regulatory approval and to import and administer a vaccine."

The inactivated vaccine is produced by a subsidiary of Sinopharm in Beijing.

NASA spacecraft to depart asteroid for long 2.5-year journey home

A NASA spacecraft packed with samples is set to depart an asteroid on Monday and begin its two-and-a-half-year journey back home.

"Now that it's science goals are complete, the time has come for a Osiris-Rex to fire its engines, and bid farewell to asteroid Bennu."

Osiris-Rex began its journey to Bennu in September 2016.

The spacecraft descended onto the asteroid last October, momentarily touching the surface to collect a handful of cosmic rubble for return to Earth.

The samples are due to parachute into the Utah desert in September 2023.

The solar-orbiting Bennu is rich in carbon and believed to hold the preserved building blocks of the solar system.
