Sarah Gilbert said human vaccine trials should take place over the next two weeks.
According to her, it is probably possible to create a vaccine before the fall, but so far no one gives a guarantee that this will work.
“I think it’s very likely that this will work based on the things we’ve done with this type of vaccine … It's not just speculation, we’re getting more data every week. I’d say that the probability is 80 %, this is my personal opinion, "the virologist explained.
What is known about the vaccine from COVID-19
In Turkey, doctors developed a vaccine for COVID-19 and began testing on animals. In the end, the subjects developed antibodies. Australian scientists began testing two ferret coronavirus vaccines. Scientists expect the first test results to appear in June. In the United States, scientists presented the first results of preclinical trials of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus vaccine. The experiments were carried out on laboratory mice. Two weeks after vaccination, antibodies to coronavirus began to be actively developed in rodents. In the former epicenter of a coronavirus outbreak, namely in Wuhan, three groups of volunteers were given the coronavirus vaccine. Scientists note that preclinical trials should end by the end of next month. Around 20 coronavirus vaccines are being developed worldwide. Ukraine does not develop and create vaccines.
