Coronavirus: Canada confirms planned Chinese vaccine trial has been scrapped after shipments delayed

The National Research Council confirms the plan to test a candidate vaccine developed by CanSino will no longer go ahead

The Chinese pharmaceutical giant had previously denied that the plans had fallen through.

Canada has scrapped a Covid-19 vaccine development agreement with the Chinese pharmaceutical company CanSino citing delays in shipping the drugs.
Earlier this week CanSino had denied that the collaboration had been dropped, but the National Research Council, a government-funded body, confirmed that clinical trials of vaccine candidate Ad5-nCoV would not go ahead in Canada.

In response to queries, the council said: “Due to the delay in the shipment of the CanSino Covid-19 vaccine candidate doses to Canada and as CanSino has now completed phase 1 and phase 2 clinical trials elsewhere, this specific opportunity is over and the NRC is focusing its team and facilities on other Covid-19 priorities.”
=====================================================================
With the many pharma companies working on a coronavirus vaccine, these sorts of things will happen.

In this case it is China withholding the means to conduct a test

All stems from the arrest of Meng Wanzou.

Canadians arrested for spying, old cases where a sentence was prison now upgraded to death penalty

China is throwing its weight around from SC Seas, to Canada, Australia
Using trade as a weapon

Off topic, but China should not be able to hide under a WTO developing country designation.

I read Bob Woodward's book Fear. Trumps advisors at the time thought and planned that Trump would work with the EU to contain China

TPP was one pillar of this and he promptly canceled that.

On NAFTA 2.0- US got milk quotas in Canada that were close to identical for what was negotiated under TPP

While Trump touted it as the 'greatest deal' ever ...

2nd largest economy in the world, and an expansionist military power.
I consider China to be a a threat

The Chinese PPP GDP per capita is roughly 31.12% of the US PPP GDP per capita.

Since the Chinese population is roughly 4.345 times that of the US, that means that relatively speaking, once normalized for population, the Chinese economy is approximately 75% as robust as the US economy.

Wasn't aware. Thanks,


The next problem will be getting back the money that was paid under the improperly imposed tariffs.

I believe that the US government intends to apply the provisions of the [/size][/b] Superseding Conditions Removing Each Way You Ought to be able to Undo it ACT to ensure that the money stays in the US.

US has lost nearly all challenges on softwood lumber.

The lumber lobby is powerful

Quite right. The US lumber lobby is generally quite successful in getting the US government to pass legislation (and/or enact regulations) which have no factual basis.

Then, of course, that legislation (and/or regulation) gets subjected to FACTUAL analysis and scrutiny and gets booted.

Do you detect the vaguest, faint, tentative, glimmering of what might possibly be a potential hint of a pattern here?
