  This inactivated vaccine of Wuhan Institute of Biology has good clinical safety. After vaccination, its protection rate is its antibody titer. The neutralizing antibody titer is very high, and the positive conversion rate can reach 99.06%. The protection of diagnosed moderately severe patients can reach 100%, and the comprehensive protection can reach 72.51%. All the data meet the technical standards of us, the World Health Organization, and the corresponding technology formulated by our State Food and Drug Administration. index.
