MANILLA — Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte created controversy this week. He reportedly received the first dose of the China-manufactured Sinopharm “inactivated virus” COVID-19 shot this past Monday night. He broadcast the injection live on Facebook. The problem is that only the China-manufactured “inactivated virus” Sinovac Coronavac and Oxford-AstraZeneca viral vector shots are authorized for emergency use in the country. Duterte issued a public apology after being criticized for what looks like avoidance of the shots that every other Filipino is forced or chooses to receive. The optics look even worse now that deaths and adverse reactions are piling up for the “authorized” shots. At least 24 deaths and 24,698 adverse reactions to experimental injections have been reported to government officials since the March rollout, according to ABS-CBN in Quezon City. AstraZeneca is responsible for 14 of the deaths. Sinovac is responsible for 10 deaths. The Philippines Food and Drug Administration (FDA) went into subterfuge mode from there.

Sinovac Coronavac shots
Sinovac is a Chinese biopharmaceutical company based in Beijing. Its Coronavac shot utilizes inactivated virus particles. Specifically, it propagates the SARS-CoV-2 CN2 strain inside vero (grivet monkey) kidney cells and inactivates it with beta-propiolactone. This triggers an immune response. The shot requires two doses spread weeks apart.
