Chinese inactivated vaccines effective against COVID-19 in phase-3 human trials: study

Two inactivated vaccines developed by Sinopharm have proven to be safe and effective against COVID-19 in phase-3 human trials.

A study by The Journal of the American Medical Association says the two inactivated vaccines both showed efficacy of above 70 percent based on the interim analysis of the ongoing trials.

Wang Guiqiang is with Peking University First Hospital. He says this study is the first to publish the phase-3 trial results of such vaccines.

"A Phase III clinical trial of COVID-19 vaccine is a random comparative study conducted in epidemic areas, in which one group of participants are given genuine vaccines, while the other are given placebo shots. All participants then proceed with their normal lives and work in society. Finally, we analyze the number of cases in each group and use them to calculate the protection rate."

The vaccination procedure required two injections with an interval of 21 days.

The study says the trials are still ongoing overseas, and long-term efficacy of the two Chinese vaccines for COVID-19 prevention needs to be further evaluated.

Sheriff: gunman in Calif. appeared to target victims

Police in the US say a gunman who shot and killed nine people at a California rail yard appeared to have targeted some of the victims.

Santa Clara County Sheriff Laurie Smith says the shooter, identified as Sam Cassidy, was armed with two semi-automatic handguns when he attacked.

"It appears to us at this point that he said to one of the people there, I'm not going to shoot you. And then he shot other people. So I imagine there was some kind of thought on who he wanted to shoot. He fired thirty nine rounds. There are no injuries, only fatalities. And that's very, very difficult."

Eight people died on the scene of the shooting and the ninth victim later died in hospital.

In addition to the handguns, police say Cassidy had 11 loaded magazines and his work locker contained materials for bombs.

Police say the 57-year-old shooter committed suicide when deputies arrived at the scene.

The shooting in San Jose was the 15th mass killing in the U.S. this year.

The State Department said in a statement that the U.S. took the decision not to rejoin the treaty due to Russia's failure to take any action to return to compliance.

Moscow has denied the allegations of flouting the Open Skies Treaty.
