The World Health Organization has announced that a coronavirus vaccine may be ready by mid-2021. This was reported by with reference to WHO Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan.
“More than 20 potential vaccines are currently in clinical trials. We hope that some of them will be effective, “Swaminathan said.
She also noted that the chances of the effectiveness of each vaccine fluctuate at 10%. Despite this, 2 or 3 samples of those that are currently being worked on may be effective.
“The fact that the antibodies disappear over time after recovery is clearly not encouraging. However, this does not mean that the immunity disappears, because science knows about the various ways in which the body protects itself, in particular, there are memory cells, “added Swaminathan.
Earlier, India launched its first human trial of a new coronavirus vaccine, with nearly 49,000 new cases reported in the world’s second-most populous country. As a result of additional infections in India, the total number exceeded 1.3 million on Saturday, and a surge was observed in a quarter of the 36 states and allied territories.
