Coronavirus Latest – The race for a SARS-COV-2 Vaccine

By Dyna Fayz

More than 90 vaccines are being developed against SARS-CoV-2 by research teams in companies and universities across the world. Researchers are trialling different technologies, some of which haven’t been used in a licensed vaccine before. At least six groups have already begun injecting formulations into volunteers in safety trials; others have started testing in animals. 

So how close are we to a Vaccine?

Will a vaccine that is approved a year ago, arrive early enough to end this current pandemic or will it arrive too late?

Watch this report by Dyna Fayz to find out how close we are to finding a Vaccine for the Covid-19 pandemic – You can watch the trailer and you’ll find the full video below.

Since testing began toward the end of April, several hundred people have been injected. Around 1,110 in total are expected to take part in the trial. The research team hopes to produce 1 million doses of the vaccine by September. Meanwhile, one of the UK government’s chief scientific advisers has said fresh air and sunlight are among protective measures against COVID-19.

Results from the UK’s first human trial of a COVID-19 vaccine could be available as soon as next month, said Sir John Bell, professor of medicine at Oxford University and a member of the government’s coronavirus taskforce.
