Health Workers

At least two COVID-19 vaccine candidates have shown positive results in separate trials across the world.

In Britain, a trial saw 1,000 adults participating and had found that the vaccine had induced ‘strong antibody and immune responses’.

Another trial that took place in China and saw over 500 people taking part. This trial had also shown that most participants had developed a positive response against the virus.

According to doctors, both possible vaccines have proven safe for human use and trials found that they had both produced strong immune reactions.

Forbes reports that there is no indication as to when the vaccine will enter commercial production, but nevertheless this bodes well for the global fight against the virus.

Over 21 vaccines are currently under trial worldwide, according to the World Health Organization.

Nigeria is also not left out, as universities’ scientists under the aegis of COVID-19 Research Group say they have discovered COVID-19 vaccine.

The scientists made the disclosure on Friday, June 19, saying the vaccine was being developed locally in Africa for Africans but would also work for other continents when unveiled.

The leader of the team, Dr. Oladipo Kolawole, said it would take a minimum of 18 months for the vaccine to be unveiled to the public. He said this is because a lot of analysis and studies, as well as approvals by medical authorities, were still required.
