Moon Expects Local COVID-19 Treatments to Be Available by Year-End

Moon Expects Local COVID-19 Treatments to Be Available by Year-End”

There is no vaccine for Covid-19 yet, but a handful of companies such as Pfizer and Moderna Inc are in final-stage trials of their experimental vaccines. The company declined to provide further details. The eastern city of Jiaxin's center for disease control and prevention (CDC) said in a statement on WeChat that two doses of the vaccine candidate, called CoronaVac, will cost 200 yuan ($29.75) per dose and that vaccinations for key groups including medical professionals have begun.

Illnesses, even those that are serious, "are an expected part of any clinical study, especially large studies", Johnson & Johnson said, and a study's pause "is a standard component of a clinical trial protocol".

"We need to increase production of our first and now our second vaccine, first of all we should supply the domestic market", Mr Putin said, adding that Russian Federation will also work with foreign partners to make the inoculations.

Given the size of the trial, it's not surprising that study pauses could occur, and another could happen if this one resolves, a source said. "These are some of the ways we're trying to be creative about safely vaccinating people during the pandemic", she says. Pfizer is one of four companies conducting Phase 3 clinical trials in the United States and the only one that is testing the vaccine in children. Johnson & Johnson said last month that its goal was to seek an emergency use authorization approval in early 2021.

The company was hoping to enroll 60,000 volunteers to test this vaccine.

This is the most concrete time frame a leading vaccine developer in the West has given for an emergency-use-authorization application. The CDC Playbook notes that the vaccines will likely require cold chain storage - possibly "ultra-cold" storage colder than Antarctica - and given in two doses a number of days apart and a minimum order of 1,000 Can have.

Pfizer's announcement indicates there is no chance its vaccine will be authorized for use before the U.S. election wraps up on November 3.
