Live corononirus news: China has given 1m people the Sinopharm vaccine; US CDC warns against Thanksgiving travel | World news


Apart from the recipients of the Sinopharm injections, authorities in Zhejiang said they had made Covid-19 vaccine developed by the private pharmaceutical company Sinovac Biotec available to high-risk groups in the eastern China state under the emergency use scheme.
