China Sinopharm's potential COVID-19 vaccine triggers antibodies in clinical trials: journal
Fri, 14 Aug 2020 02:36:50 -0400
China Sinopharm's potential COVID-19 vaccine triggers antibodies in clinical trials: journalA coronavirus vaccine candidate developed by a unit of China National Pharmaceutical Group (Sinopharm) appeared to be safe and triggered antibody-based immune responses in early and mid-stage trials, researchers said. Sinopharm is testing the potential vaccine in the United Arab Emirates in a Phase 3 trial expected to recruit 15,000 people, as China has too few new cases to be a useful trial site. The state-owned company will also supply the candidate to Pakistan as part of a trial agreement, the Wall Street Journal reported.

Vietnam to buy Russian COVID-19 vaccine
Fri, 14 Aug 2020 02:00:37 -0400
Vietnam to buy Russian COVID-19 vaccineVietnam's health ministry has registered to buy a Russian COVID-19 vaccine, state television reported on Friday, as the Southeast Asian country fights a new outbreak of the coronavirus following months of no local cases. Russia said on Wednesday the first batch of the world's first COVID-19 vaccine would be rolled out within two weeks, rejecting as "groundless" the safety concerns aired by some experts over Moscow's rapid approval of the drug. "In the meantime, Vietnam will still continue developing the country's own COVID-19 vaccine," state broadcaster Vietnam Television (VTV) said, citing Vietnam's Ministry of Health.

A faltering U.S.-China trade deal is now the nations' strongest link
Fri, 14 Aug 2020 00:03:28 -0400
A faltering U.S.-China trade deal is now the nations' strongest linkTop U.S. and Chinese trade officials are expected to recommit to a Phase 1 trade deal during a review on Saturday, even though China's promised purchases of U.S. exports are far behind schedule. Current and former U.S. government officials and trade experts in both countries say the Phase 1 deal, signed in January after nearly two years of tit-for-tat tariffs and angry rhetoric, is the one area where the world's two largest economies are still cooperating. The Trump administration has sanctioned companies and individuals linked to a security crackdown in Hong Kong and human rights, banned a Chinese owned video app, penalized Chinese academics and closed Beijing's consulate in Houston in recent months.

Fauci says temperature checks not reliable
Thu, 13 Aug 2020 23:16:00 -0400
Fauci says temperature checks not reliableThe novel coronavirus has now killed more than 753,000 people worldwide. Over 20.7 million people across the globe have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the disease caused by the new respiratory virus, according to data compiled by the Center for Systems Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University. The actual numbers are believed to be much higher due to testing shortages, many unreported cases and suspicions that some national governments are hiding or downplaying the scope of their outbreaks.

US seizes millions of dollars from Islamic State and Al-Qaeda's cryptocurrency accounts
Thu, 13 Aug 2020 21:57:25 -0400
US seizes millions of dollars from Islamic State and Al-Qaeda's cryptocurrency accountsThe Justice Department says it has seized millions of dollars from cryptocurrency accounts that militant groups, including al-Qaeda and the Islamic State, relied on to finance their organisations and violent plots. Law enforcement officials said the groups used the accounts to solicit donations, including by trying to raise money from the sale of fraudulent personal protective equipment for the coronavirus pandemic. Officials described it as the largest-ever seizure of virtual currency funds related to terrorism. It is also part of a broader Justice Department goal of disrupting the financing of extremist organisations, including those designated as foreign terror groups. Cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin are favored for illicit transactions because they are perceived as hard to trace, and one of the groups singled out on Thursday explicitly encouraged donations by telling potential contributors that the money trail would be difficult for law enforcement to untangle, the department said. The legal action, which included undercover law enforcement work and a forfeiture complaint filed in Washington's federal court, is meant to deprive the organisations of funds needed to buy weapons and develop fighters, Assistant Attorney General John Demers said in a conference call with reporters announcing the case.
