Covid-19 vaccine from China shows promise in human trials

"Jointly developed by CanSino and the Institute of Biotechnology under the Academy of Military Medical Sciences".

Those likely will be divided among Americans and volunteers in other countries such as Brazil or South Africa, Dr. Anthony Fauci of the National Institutes of Health told The Associated Press.

"This is not a race of who comes first".

More details about the difference between the two vaccines were not revealed yet.

No vaccine has yet been approved for commercial use against the illness caused by the new coronavirus, but over a dozen vaccines from more than 100 candidates globally are being tested in humans. Many scientists don't expect a coronavirus vaccine to be almost as protective as the measles shot. Drew Weissman of the College of Pennsylvania.

The group appealed to the Secretary-General of the United Nations, Director-General of the World Health Organisation (WHO), as well as religious leaders, corporations and media companies to come together to ensure available COVID-19 vaccines.

And for all the government promises of stockpiling doses in hopes of starting vaccinations by year's end, here's the catch: Even if a shot pans out - and it's one that your country stockpiled - only some high-risk people, such as essential workers, go to the front of a very long line.

Once injected, these viral antigens are expressed in human cells that trigger the body's immune response. Hence, the Trump administration plans to pump $10 billion into research, manufacturing and purchase agreements in a campaign dubbed "Operation Warp Speed", which includes six major United States pharmaceutical companies, and AstraZeneca, with the goal of having at least 300 million doses of a vaccine in stock by January next year.

Different countries have different rules about when to release a vaccine. Also Germany has called for an alliance of European Union member states to secure access to a vaccine, and the European Union is prepared to tap a €2.4-billion emergency fund to make advanced purchases of promising candidate vaccines.

Because each vaccine works differently, "what population group it will protect, we don't know yet", said Dr. Mariangela Simao of the World Health Organization, which advises countries on how to choose.
