China's Sinovac COVID-19 vaccine proves effective in Brazil trials - WSJ
(Reuters) - Chinese vaccine maker Sinovac Biotech's COVID-19 vaccine has been shown to be effective in late-stage studies in Brazil, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday, citing people who helped develop the vaccine.
Sinovac and AstraZeneca Plc's vaccine candidates could be ready for use in Brazil by mid-February, the country's health minister said last week.
Brazil is the first country in the world to complete late-stage studies of the Sinovac vaccine CoronaVac, which is also being tested in Indonesia and Turkey.

The Butantane Institute of the State of Sao Paulo is organizing the late-phase tests with CoronaVac in Brazil.
The results of the Brazil studies have brought CoronaVac above the 50% threshold that international scientists believe is necessary to protect people, the journal report said.
Butantane will announce CoronaVac's effectiveness rate on Wednesday, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The Butantane Institute and Sinovac did not immediately respond to Reuters' requests for comment.
