[Chine] China Sinopharm’s potential COVID-19 vaccine triggers antibodies in clinical trials: journal

The COVID-19 pandemic is wreaking havoc on the global economy, affecting the lives of millions, and increasing uncertainty of a new Cold War between the United States and China. Cambodia, like a few other countries in Southeast Asia, appears to have been fortunate in succeeding to contain the spread of the virus. But its economy is faltering, if not failing.
[Asie / Pacifique] CO20157 | Global Health Security: COVID-19 and Its Impacts – BRI and Indo-Pacific: Geopolitics of Multilateralism?
The Belt and Road Initiative, and the Free and Open Indo-Pacific, have new dimensions and new players. But how are these concepts unfolding, and will they move past existing pitfalls?
With the exception of Thailand, the five countries of mainland Southeast Asia are some of the poorest in the Asia-Pacific region. According to the World Bank, Cambodia has a per capita GDP of around $1,600, while Myanmar’s is roughly $1,400. Laos and Vietnam fare only marginally better, each at around $2,500. Their political systems run the gamut from semi-democracies to authoritarian one-party states. Yet despite some initial missteps, they have all largely suppressed COVID-19, proving far more effective in addressing the pandemic than most developed countries, including the United States.
This policy brief examines how the eleven countries of South-East Asia are coping
with the immediate impacts of COVID-19, focusing on the subregion’s socio-economic
response and providing four sets of recommendations for a recovery that leads to a more
sustainable, resilient and inclusive future.

[Asie / Pacifique] What Comes After COVID-19? Political Psychology, Strategic Outcomes, and Options for the Asia-Pacific ‘Quad-Plus’

The COVID-19 pandemic provides an opportunity for the Cambodian government, led by Prime Minister Hun Sen’s ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), to earn more trust from its citizens. This trust-building effort is pivotal as the current government needs a good level of legitimacy to continue its leadership of Cambodia.
