Chinese expert claims that China's Sinopharm vaccine as "most unsafe" with 73 side effects

A Chinese doctor has called the Sinopharm COVID-19 vaccine the ‘most unsafe in the world’ and also claimed it has 73 side effects, in a report by Taiwan News. 

Dr. Tao Lina, a vaccine expert from Shanghai, took to his social media account to sound an alarm about the Sinopharm vaccine but soon went on to retract the charges.

He said on Weibo that the vaccine developed by state-run pharma company Sinopharm, is extremely unsafe.

The now deleted comment states that the vaccine listed side effects of “pain around the injection area, headache, high blood pressure, the loss of vision and taste, and urinary incontinence”

However, as soon as his statement went viral, the vaccine expert apologised to the nation and his fellow countrymen for his “imprudent” comments.

The Chinese government had granted conditional approval to the Sinopharm vaccine, which has shown over 79% efficacy.
