On April 30, official sources of the Argentine national government informed that the ‘closing of negotiations’ to manufacture the vaccines of the Chinese company Sinopharm is imminent, a decision that generates doubts due to the extremely low effectiveness that the Chinese vaccines demonstrated in other countries.
China’s failed ‘vaccine diplomacy’
After the anger of the international community for having covered up the existence of the CCP Virus to the world—with the help of the WHO—China rushed to manufacture a vaccine not only to sell and make fortunes but also to ‘give away’ to the neediest countries, in an attempt to show its ‘benevolence.’
According to the Daily Mail, this ‘vaccine diplomacy,’ which Beijing calls the ‘Health Silk Road,’ was a complete failure due to the ineffectiveness of the vaccines. However, it was not enough to prevent some socialist governments, such as Argentina, to sign millionaire contracts—taxpayers’ money—with Chinese state laboratories to produce the vaccines locally.
The case of Chile and the United Arab Emirates
According to South China Morning Post, the Arab country began manufacturing Sinopharm’s vaccine last month. However, because it did not generate immunity in people, they ended up administering up to a third dose of the vaccine to each person.
Beyond the tarnished reputation and zero credibility of the WHO and other international health agencies, none of the Chinese vaccines have emergency use authorization. Despite the dismal final results, none of these agencies have recommended against the use of Chinese vaccines, which minimally raises doubts about the true role of these entities and the pressure exerted by the Chinese communist regime.
Initially, and according to its own studies, China claimed that its vaccines were 79% effective against the coronavirus.
However, studies in Chile revealed alarmingly low levels of protection after the first injection.
One study reported that a single dose was only 3% effective, while a second found it 16% effective.
Chile is among the countries that administered the most vaccines to its population; about 4 out of 10 people were vaccinated with the Chinese vaccine.
Even so, they had very high peaks of infections and hospitalizations after having deployed such an impressive vaccination operation, even more than other countries that failed to vaccinate their population.
Even the authority of China’s Center for Communicable Diseases (CDC) admitted the low effectiveness of Chinese vaccines but was immediately censored and forced to deny his claims.
Nikolai Petrovsky, vaccine developer and professor of medicine at Flinders University in Adelaide, Australia, said:
“Unless Chinese firms can improve standards and provide data to show consistent effectiveness, their vaccines are likely to be used only by desperate countries where any vaccine may be attractive, particularly if provided for free.”
While this is not the case in Argentina, Chile, or the United Arab Emirates, investing millions of dollars in a vaccine that doesn’t work presents reasonable doubt about whether these governments intend to help people or make a formality without caring about the results.
The role of the media
Both the official spokespersons of the Argentine government and the local media presented the Chinese vaccine as ‘highly effective and the decision to bring millions of doses to the country as a ‘relief,’ perhaps considering the CCP, the regime to blame for the pandemic, as the ‘savior’ of the Argentine people.
The lack of independent journalism that neither investigates nor fact-checks the government’s statements have led people to trust in a product that is not only ineffective but it is not even known what the long-term effects will be.
At the end of the day, China’s ‘vaccine diplomacy’ only serves to deceive people, brings no benefit, and makes it clear that governments have no real intention to help people but to pursue a political agenda at the possible cost of people’s own lives.
