China's CoronaVac COVID-19 vaccine produced by Sinovac has been proven safe and effective after phase III trials conducted in several countries, boosting public confidence over its global rollout as Indonesian President Joko Widodo received his first shot of the CoronaVac vaccine on Wednesday.

Sinovac's COVID-19 vaccine is 100 percent effective in preventing severe and moderate infections, 77.96 percent effective in preventing mild cases, and has an overall efficacy of 50.4 percent in Brazil's final-stage trials, according to researchers in Brazil on Tuesday.

Experts said the result is "good enough" considering almost all the trial participants in Brazil were high-risk medical workers, and the 77.96 efficacy for mild-case protection means the vaccine will reduce the amount of people needing hospitalization by 78 percent.
