Yesterday, China’s embassy in Thailand announced that the second shipment of 500,000 doses of the Sinovac vaccines given by the Chinese government got to Thailand.

This second shipment brings the total donations of Sinovac from China to 6.5 million doses.

Globally, China and Thailand have the most doses of Sinovac.

Earlier this week, The Thaiger reported that 11 million doses of Sinovac are set to arrive in Thailand over the next 3 months.

2 weeks ago, it was also reported that a man with “fatal medical conditions” died after receiving Sinovac. 2 weeks before that, 9 students nurses complained of side effects from the Sinovac vaccine. Which was preceded by 7 people complaining of “stroke-like symptoms“.

4 days ago the World Health Organization approved Sinovac for emergency use.

    The American embassy in Thailand announced some days ago some USA donation would come in future. US expats some days ago begged for innoculaton, The American officials replied they would come. They would come without strings, they are surly coming, now at somewhere between LA and Hawaii, by steam boat.

    “I am signing off from Thaiger for now.”

    Thank God – to describe your comments as clueless nonsense would be an insult to clueless nonsense.

    1) Rubbish. Totally untrue.

    2) Not correct, but so what? AI simply processes data faster than people can.

    3) Not correct – it has in some but not others, but so what?

    4) Absurd. It’s the equivalent of saying that because water (H2O) and sulfuric acid (H2SO4) both have two hydrogen atoms, the result of drinking them will be “the same”. Try it.

    5) as 4.

    6) You presumably mean the opposite – that the brain blood barrier allows lipids to pass???!!! So what? Over 50% of your brain weight is lipids, FFS!

    7) J Bart Classen’s “research”, peer reviewed and supported by … J Bart Classen, the anti-vaxxer nut.

    “I hope that explains”

    It certainly does!!!

    Wouldn’t touch a Sinovac with a 10 foot pole. Not only do they offer a very limited protection against Covid — far less than all other vaccinations — God knows what the Chinese put in them.

    You’d have to be crazy to volunteer for a Sinovac vaccination. I’d stay unvaccinated for the rest of my life before I’d trust anything coming from the country that gave the world Covid.
