China is presenting potential vaccines against "Covid-19" for the first time

India becomes the second most affected country in the world by "Corona"

Medics take samples for a Corona test among residents of the slums in Pajali, near Kangra, India.


Yesterday, India became the second country in the world after the United States in terms of the number of "Covid-19" infections, and surpassed that of Brazil, at a time when the epidemic is reverting to a severe outbreak, especially in Europe.

For its part, China has offered domestic vaccines against the Corona virus, which was discovered for the first time in it.

In detail, the Indian Ministry of Health announced yesterday that 90,802 new cases of Coronavirus had been recorded during the past 24 hours.

India thus surpassed Brazil, to become the second country in the world to record cases of Coronavirus infection after the United States of America.

The Indian network NDTV stated that yesterday is the second consecutive day that India has recorded more than 90,000 daily cases of infection.

This brings the total number of HIV cases in India to four million 204 thousand and 613 cases.

The data of the Ministry of Health showed that 1016 deaths from the virus were recorded during the past 24 hours, bringing the total deaths from the virus to 71,642 cases.

More than 77% of those infected with the virus have recovered.

Although India performs more than a million tests per day, the test rate per 1,000 people is still lower than many countries, as India is the second most populous country in the world.

India, the second most populous country in the world with 1.3 billion people, has been hit hard by the epidemic that has killed more than 880,000 people in the world since the end of December, according to a census based on official data.

India is among the three countries most affected by the epidemic in terms of the number of deaths, after the United States (188 thousand and 540 deaths), and Brazil (126 thousand and 203 deaths).

But many experts point out that India is not testing for a sufficient number of people, while many deaths are not properly recorded, which means that the actual numbers may be much higher than those declared.

Since August, India has recorded the highest daily increases in the number of injuries in the world, and Saturday crossed the four million mark, after barely 13 days of crossing the three million threshold.

The number of examinations will be increased after the scientists who provide advice to the government on the epidemic recommend that the criteria for conducting the tests be amended, so that the matter is available to anyone without the need to obtain a letter from the doctor.

On Sunday, Britain recorded about 3,000 new infections, in an unprecedented number since late May.

The Minister of Health, Matt Hancock, told Sky News, "The increase that we observed today is a cause for concern," indicating that new infections were detected, especially among the "younger ones."

The epidemic also resumed its spread in France, with about 25,000 infections within three days, and the peak was recorded on Friday with 9,000 cases.

Despite this worrying context, the French government intends to ease one of the measures imposed in the context of combating the outbreak of the "Covid-19" epidemic, which is to impose a 14-day quarantine on the infected and suspected of being infected.

In Spain, where schools are reopening their doors, despite the sharp increase in the number of injuries, many parents refuse to send their children to classes, despite threats of sanctions.

The Canadian authorities announced that they had refused to receive 18,431 foreign travelers, most of them Americans, who came from the United States between March 22 (the date of the partial closure of the borders between the two countries) and the second of September, due to their unnecessary travel.

On a normal day, more than 400,000 Canadians and Americans cross the border every day.

Meanwhile, China offered local vaccines against the Coronavirus, while this country in which the epidemic was discovered is trying to improve its reputation.

High hopes are pinned on potential vaccines produced by the two Chinese companies, "Sinovac Biotech" and "Sinopharma", which are shown at a trade fair in Beijing this week.

None of them has been put on the market yet, but their producers hope that they will be approved after the end of the third phase trials, which are considered very important, early in the year.

A representative of "Sinovac" said that his company "has completed building a vaccine factory" that can produce 300 million doses annually.

China, which is facing a barrage of criticism from countries around the world for its handling of the epidemic in the beginning, is trying to reformulate the events of the start of the spread of "Covid-19".

Official media and officials alike are promoting the progress made in producing local vaccines as a sign of Chinese leadership and resilience in the face of an unprecedented health threat to the global economy.

The potential vaccines offered are among about 10 vaccines around the world that have entered the third phase of trials, which is usually the last step before approval by health authorities.

The company, "Sinopharm", said it expects the antibodies provided by its vaccine to last between one and three years, although the final result will not be known until after the end of the experiments.

And the New China News Agency (Xinhua) reported, yesterday, that another potential vaccine, developed by Chinese military scientists, can deal with mutations of the Corona virus.

As of last month, it had pre-ordered at least 5.7 billion doses of vaccines in development around the world.

However, the World Health Organization has warned that large-scale vaccinations against "Covid-19" may not take place before the middle of next year.

And in Moscow, the Russian health authorities announced yesterday that 5,185 new cases of corona were recorded during the past 24 hours.

"Russia Today" website quoted the Russian Operations Center for combating the outbreak of the Coronavirus, that 51 new deaths were recorded from "Corona".

And in Tehran, the Iranian Ministry of Health recorded, yesterday, 2152 new cases of the emerging coronavirus in the past 24 hours, which is the highest daily increase in 10 days, bringing the total number of infections in the country to 388,810 cases.

A spokeswoman for the Ministry of Health said on state television, Sima Sadat Larry, that the deaths due to the "Covid-19" disease, resulting from infection with the virus, increased from 117 to 22,410 cases.

51 deaths and 5,185 cases of corona in Russia ... and Iran records the highest daily virus infections in 10 days.

90,802 new cases of Coronavirus were recorded in India during the past 24 hours.
