Published on 21 Jan 2021 / In News & Politics

With coronavirus cases on the rise, Pakistan has just approved China's Sinopharm COVID 19 vaccine for emergency use. The approval comes just days after authorities green lighted the Oxford-Astra Zeneca vaccine. But Pakistan is also hosting mass trials for another Chinese-made vaccine, CanSinoBio. The testing requires thousands of willing volunteers, but they're tough to find in a country where anti-vaccination sentiment runs deep.
