    I just wanted to bring a few things up before anyone else does because I'm sure this video (relating to a couple of hot-button issues) will invite some criticism. - There's a section at 7:31 where we talk about how in general, Chinese vaccines are not as effective as those from Moderna and Pfizer. On screen, we show their different efficacy ratings, and I know there was a popular video by Vox this week that explained why you can't directly compare vaccines to each other off of their efficacy ratings. This is absolutely true, but the general message here, that the attenuated/inactivated virus and other older technologies used by the five currently-approved Chinese vaccines are not as effective compared to those of Moderna and Pfizer is true--mRNA vaccines are known to be more effective than other technologies, and that's part of what makes them such an exciting technology. You can read this article by the Harvard Medical School for an explanation as to why and how: - I want to reiterate the point that I hope the video does: any country donating vaccines to others that have a reduced level of access is a good thing. This video does not criticize that. It merely criticizes the manner in which this is being done. In addition, it brings up the point that this could be strategically problematic for China, based on their own interests. There's definitely the flip side of that which is to say that China is sacrificing vaccinating its population in order to give doses to those that need them most, which is valiant. But again, its not the action this video is criticizing, it's the method. - Also, yes: China mismanaged the epidemic in the beginning, denied its existence, suppressed whistleblowers, etc. Once it flipped the script and started taking action, though, it quickly became one of the countries with one of the most effective suppression programs. While there is some legitimate doubt about numbers and statistics in the early days of the epidemic in China, there's no legitimate doubt that China has effectively suppressed the virus to very low levels of transmission now.

    From very biased point of view from Wendover unfortunately. If you criticize the method, you’d better provide a better method for the interest of everyone. So far US government diplomacy method on world vaccine distribution is unfortunately very selfish and politically centered. You’d better make a video with criticism on US as well.

    @wyterabitt In my country, inactivated viral vaccines e.g. SinoVac, Sputnik V have also been cited as having the advantage of being useable by people with some allergies, unlike mRNA vaccines e.g. Pfizer BnT, Moderna

  4. Nick Stone

    Nick Stone13 kun oldin

    China can afford the risk for a very simple reason: hard lockdowns (the only truly effective types) are far easier for China's authoritarian government to execute than could be done in most of the more-liberal western world. This, coupled with a common ideal in the Asian world of "for the greater good", means any flare ups, if not ignored by the Chinese government, can be more easily and rapidly quashed without serious political risk domestically than in the rest of the world, which also explains why the western world partly MUST accept higher efficacy rates (the west cant quash as hard or as quickly due to potential political unrest). The trick for China is controlling the message and the "leaks" from its official story, NOT it's capability to fight the virus.

    The CCP was lying about all figures since the start...the infection level, the death rate, the efficacy of the vaccine, the rate of vaccinations, etc. That is why over 95% of China's people are not vaccinated, nor do they want to be. They understand the propaganda of these experimental shots, unlike the people of the west are lining up for these non-FDA approved "vaccines".

    Here we are nearly 3 months later and it is becoming apparent that amongst those nations with the highest vaccination rates, some are doing a lot better and some are doing a lot worse. And the difference appears to be the vaccine or vaccines in use. For example, Israel has now effectively reached herd immunity with daily case rates in the teens - effectively residual levels. Whilst the UK is seeing a resurgence of the Delta strain and whilst the story of this isn't over, one suspects that Astra Zeneca's reduced efficacy against the Delta strain isn't helping. Which brings us to all the countries that have high vaccination rates, in part because of being early adopters of Chinese vaccines (or Sputnik V), but are struggling to suppress the virus. Of course we still need to wait a few months to see if these countries can get a high enough overall vaccination rate to tip into herd immunity, despite a lower efficacy vaccine. But it may well be the case that some countries won't reach herd immunity, will see further mass waves of the virus (Delta and perhaps worse) and this will backfire on them. It may also backfire on China and Russia. Now, this doesn't change the fact that if a less than perfect vaccine is all you've got, its a good place to start. The less virus out there, the less chance it has to mutate. But lets not kid ourselves. The resurgence of new waves of even more potent strains that can still multiply despite vaccination is a very real possibility. We can only hope that China does its own mRNA or protein subunit vaccine. We can only hope that production of the better vaccines can be ramped further and licensed to poorer countries. The mega pharmaceutical companies such as Pfizer have not just a moral duty but they owe it to their own reputation to bring prices down and allow near-royalty-free production. And of course, despite the Men in Black hypothesis (some things ordinary humans should never know), it is in fact better if we stop pretending that all vaccines are the same - especially when it comes to the thing that matters most of all which is the ability of a vaccine to reduce re-transmission, induce herd immunity and indeed, just maybe, eradicate the virus entirely. We need to keep our eyes open about this.

    You guys do understand that China put every single person in lockdown, in their home, for a few months when covid breakout, right? You are not supposed to leave your house without a proper reason and you must wear a mask at all times. That is why the virus disappeared in China, not false reporting, but the cooperation of every single Chinese citizen. Many people think that the Chinese are lying because Trump never bothered to put the US in lockdown, and allowed the virus to spread freely. I can safely assure you that if the US and India contained covid well, the pandemic would already be over.

    Well, I think I can speak about this as a Mexican. Both my parents got the Sinovac vaccine. The reason is that we ran out of Phizer but that's because that one were given to more vulnerable (or rich) people. As mexicans there's always this sentiment of "better than nothing". Sure, there were some ppl protesting agains the chinese vaccine as it isn't as good but while those refused to vaccine others took the chance to get Sinovac. Like, let's say Sinovac is 50% effective. That's better than 0 right? even if you get phizer who knows how much time that'd take. Now, China. I'd say Mexico doesn't like China too much but we don't like the US that much either. The US is our pretentious an richier brother that want's to control us even tho we are brothers and should stand on the same ground. I don't think there's a way Mexico will "get rid" of that. China is some kind of scalper and always scheming country so we don't really trust them. So yeah. Mexico is kinda stuck between them, we don't like them that much but we have to deal with them whether we like it or not. That being said. That's my perspective and educated guess. I'm just one person in this country so just take this commebt as it is. A comment.

    The concern at last doesn’t really exist… China has vaccinated over 800mil doses. Not sure what do you mean by back to normal life mean, but China has been back to normal almost a year. At least no mask, no social distancing, no gathering restriction. But of course, the west also have their own vaccination diplomacy, let’s see how the 5 eyes recognise something like vaccination passport.

    China could have been testing their vaccine over years. They could have been intensional leaks leading to SARS etc. They then controlled it and went further. Another test leak that China would be to be able to control and make the medical system overwhelmed in the world. During this test, if anything goes wrong, China simply could play the victim and not the culprit. CCP managed it successfully. China was able to suppress the virus, play a victim, spread the virus through its open travel abroad. By controlling the supply chain, China was able to derail the whole world economy and make a huge business for itself. When the whole world is suffering, they are excelling. It is obvious, they had to have partners in the rest of the world. Fauchi, Bill Gates, Big Farma Companies, Corrupt beurocrats - all worked as partners. China has WTO in its pocket, Veto power in the UN, Security council, CCP was not afraid of any threat. The world stands helpless without any strong leader, able to combine and lead any force against China.

    what's so suspicious? inactivated virus vaccines is pretty much the traditional way of making vaccines and MRNA was a completely clinically untested technology. So logically, MRNA vaccines had to clear bigger hurdles in the west to get an approval. The Chinese vaccine was made quickly, but Chinese officials have admitted that their vaccine was not very effective. Shortcuts were probably taken with sinovac and cleared to be used anyways because of propaganda reasons.

    The virus could’ve been brought to China by 369 American military personnel who went to Wuhan for two weeks in late October for the international military games. The fact that so many of the more than 16000 flu and even more pneumonia deaths in America last year had similar pathological markings of coronavirus deaths with white colored lungs indicates the possible existence of coronavirus victims among the flu and pneumonia deaths. Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said that some Americans who had seemingly died from influenza later tested positive for the new coronavirus. In addition, none of the American military athletes won any gold medal in Wuhan military games which caused suspicions that the American athletes were with illness. Because, when did American athletes ever not earn a single gold medal in an international sporting event? America ranked number 35 earning 2 silver and 4 bronze total 6 medals, lagging behind countries like Switzerland, Slovenia, Egypt, Kenya, Morocco, Kenya, Mongolia, India, Namibia, Tunisia...the list goes on. The suspicion is that while the American military athletes were touring all over Wuhan, some of them who were asymptomatic might have inadvertently spread the virus. The first 13 cases in Wuhan had nothing to do with the wet market and the first recorded case in Wuhan was in November 2019, right after the Americans left.

    The low efficacy of their vaccines, while being more available for less developed nations, only cemented the made in China quality stereotype while those made in the west are of higher quality. I do agree that Sinovac being the first vaccine used by our country's frontline healthcare workers did give it a massive reputation boost, now it's one of the top preferred vaccines after Pfizer and Astrazeneca.

    People in the west are mostly idiots who would blindly follow so called "brand name". "Made in USA is good, Made in German is great, Made in Japan is even better". Those people often ignore the fact that China made almost ALL the things in their lives now. cheap AND expensive.

    Chinese vaccines are not that effective real world data from Chile and Seychelles are there to see. Inspite of giving more than 60% population Chinese vaccines jab there are still spikes in carona cases there. CCP China doesn't care for people from other countries or for that matter their own people. They are just power hungry Communist who want to increase their influence globally. People should boycott Chinese vaccines

    @Jimmy Tsai but most countries rejected Chinese vaccine ( 40% effectiveness and very high cost and low supply)

    Now it’s 600 million (just 2 days later). So the author is wrong. Chinese government does not have a supply problem

    15:00 Thanks for painting the color of Taiwan differently :) FYI Beijing was trying to get another country allegiance for their vaccine, something that they are NOT even trying to hide*. *Posted in May this year by scmp which is controlled by Beijing. Title: Will Taiwan’s allies switch allegiance to Beijing to obtain vaccines? May 2021 It is however troubling to see the west's superpower US withdrawing its warship from SCE while Taiwan just experienced an outbreak in May (after successfully keeping out the covid for over 10 months). Therefore maybe a bit uneasy to mobilize the military to lean more aids to the raising covid situation. I am a bit concern with the US's leadership in reading the bigger picture.

    i'm here again, because more than 566.72 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines had been administered across China, in case you don't know the population of china is 1.4 billion. let's wait and see what will happen in three months

    I’m Chinese and my family members in China just got vaccinated last week. They were able to get the vaccine a long time ago but simply because new outbreaks are very rare so they prefer not to get it unit abt two weeks ago when there were new local cases appearing in China.

    Sorry to let u down but after 1 month u uploaded this video,around 5 billion doses of vaccine had been give to Chinese population.And I can tell u its the willing of ppl who wants to be vaccinated or not that bottlenecked the progress of vaccination, not the vaccine productivity itself.One of my colleagues told me that some of the villages give ppl free eggs and offer them free rides to encourage the old folks to take vaccine. I just the second dose just recently and it was fine.

    im from taiwan and live in china. got my first vaccine shot the end of last month and will get my second one soon (for free, not sure how it works in other countries). no, obviously i dont agree with these practices, especially given where im from and how close this thing affects me, but it would be foolish to assume that other countries with a working vaccine rnt doing the same. again, dont like it and dont agree with it, but this is just how the world works. havent actually checked but doubt the states have offered iran any vaccines, and if they have then u can bet they wanted sth big in return. like i said, its just how this world works

    This video reminds me of a common Chinese saying - 好人難做 (literarily - difficult to be a good person, metaphorically - doing good deeds will get you punished). And this problem stems from an old Chinese saying: 以小人之心,度君子之腹 (measure the stature of great men by the yardstick of small men) However our Confucian philosphy taught us: 道之所存 雖千萬人吾往矣 (if the deed is righteous, just do it even against thousands of people)
