Indonesia’s food and drug agency on Monday granted emergency use approval to a Covid-19 vaccine developed by China’s Sinovac Biotech, as it became the first country outside China to give the regulatory greenlight to the vaccine.

Interim data from a late-stage human test in Indonesia showed the shot was 65.3 percent effective, Penny K. Lukito, who heads the country’s food and drugs authority BPOM said.
