BANGKOK (Reuters) – Thailand on Wednesday said it was still on track to receive and administer a coronavirus vaccine by China’s Sinovac Biotech starting next month, despite data from a Brazil trial that showed 50.4% efficiency, health officials said.

“There is no impact on our plan right now,” Supakit Sirilak, Director-General of Medical Science Department, told a briefing when asked about Brazil’s data.

“We are asking for information directly from Sinovac, so we are waiting for their response to get all the facts,” he said.

Thailand, which has reported a total of 10,991 infections and 67 fatalities since it detected its first case a year ago, has ordered 2 million doses of Sinovac’s CoronaVac and expects to receive the first 200,000 doses next month.
