COVID-19 vaccine: China's public good versus 'America First'

With more than 20 million confirmed cases worldwide, people are all waiting anxiously for news of a successful vaccine and hoping for early inoculation. According to the WHO, by August 6, six vaccine candidates have started phase three clinical trial, with three developed by China. The progress gives the world a glimpse of hope. China has been a forerunner in global efforts to develop a vaccine. It has been participating in and advancing international cooperation in this regard. Its pledge of turning a vaccine developed by China into a global public good has won plaudits from the international community. Standing in clear contrast is the US, another major R&D force. Its focus, however, is on hoarding or even monopolizing vaccines. Guided by "America first", it gives free rein to selfish nationalism on this issue, which has been condemned by the world.
