Why is it only the mRNA vaccines that can prevent China from being stuck in zero lockdown?This.
"Re-opening with Chinese characteristics" is highly contingent on the availability of Chinese local mRNA boosters shots, and how fast it can be mass produced and disseminated. After Delta and now Omnicron, mRNA boosters specifically tailored to new variants is neccessary or else China will be stuck in 'zero COVID' forever.
Anyone know the status of a Chinese local COVID anti-viral pills for severe cases? Inevitable breakthrough infections (with or without mRNA) will need protection from death, I'm sure China has prioritize this as well as part of it's long-term re-opening strategy.
