World Health Organization says 8 candidates for the Covid-19 vaccine in clinical trial

World Health Organization says 8 candidates for the Covid-19 vaccine in clinical trial”

The Canadian Prime Minister, in the press conference, also stated that the National Research Council of Canada will collaborate with manufacturers of the potential vaccine to produce it in the country to see if the trials are successful.

But China's success in largely taming the outbreak could pose a hurdle for its vaccine developers when they reach the final stage of testing.

As governments around the world scramble to curb the contagion, pharmaceutical companies and health institutes in countries like United States, China, and Germany are leading the development to combat the virus, South China Morning Post reported.

As things stand, many nations like the U.S., and China have announced tentative dates when they intend to acquire a vaccine prepared.

Referred to as Ad5-nCoV, the vaccine candidate received Chinese regulatory approval earlier this year, allowing CanSino Biologics to move ahead with human clinical trials in China.

He stated, there may be a number of uncertainty in creating the vaccine.

Experts say it will take at least 12 to 18 months to develop an effective vaccine, possibly even longer.

US President Donald Trump told the virtual town hall of Fox News, "I believe we will get the vaccine by the end of this year".

The centre's director, Dr. Scott Halperin, says the lab was one of several in Canada and the US whose work starting in 2014 eventually saw an "emergency release" of an Ebola vaccine that was used in West Africa before a third phase of clinical trials had been completed. So far, more than 1.3 million Canadians have tested positive for the virus and 32,368 cases are still active, making it important to have a vaccine available very soon to control the situation. More than 46 lakh people are affected by this deadly disease worldwide, while more than three lakh 11 thousand have died.
