From the very beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan, China’s CDC has been at the forefront of the fight against the virus, tirelessly pushing forward vaccine research and development.

But that was just the beginning. Before a safe and effective vaccine could be produced and dispatched to the front line, a host of technical, industrial and logistical obstacles had to be overcome.
