  • While the Sinovac Covid-19 vaccine isn’t as effective against the Delta variant as AstraZeneca and Pfizer, the director general of Thailand’s Department of Disease Control says the Chinese-made vaccine played a key role in saving lives, according to the Thai govenment’s news bureau. The doses first arrived during the emergence of the Alpha variant earlier this year and was the first vaccine to arrive in Thailand. It helped to control the outbreak, the director general says.
