Thousands of EFF supporters march - demand approval of Russian, Chinese vaccines
Perhaps as many as 2000 EFF members are marching on the health regulator, in contravention of Covid-19 regulations
The EFF demands that the regulator approve the Sinopharm, Sinovac, and Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccines within seven days, or face consequences
The South African Health Products Regulatory Authority (Sahpra) is evaluating data on the Sinopharm, Sinovac, and Sputnik V Covid-19 jabs.
It has dedicated a significant number of resources and people to accelerate the detailed process before it can grant approval or deny it.
The EFF, in contravention of Covid-19 regulations, marched on Sahpra’s offices on Friday to demand the rollout of the Russian and Chinese vaccines within the next week.
Right now, there are about 2000 EFF supporters outside Sahpra offices.
The safety, quality, and efficacy of the vaccines are key, said Sahpra CEO Dr Boitumelo Semete-Makokotlela.
