China’s state-run Global Times newspaper took aim at an erroneous report published on the Taipei-based news website Taiwan News that 47 Chinese workers who contracted COVID-19 last week in Uganda had previously been vaccinated with a Chinese C19 vaccine.

Again, there’s no evidence to support that assertion.
