70 Covid-19 vaccines are in development, with 3 being tested in human trials, WHO says pic.twitter.com/x797iZp14s— QuickTake by Bloomberg (@QuickTake) April 13, 2020
The vaccine in the most advanced stage is one being developed by the Chinese company CanSino Biologics in collaboration with the Beijing Institute of Biotechnology. The other two being tested on humans are treatments developed separately by US drugmakers Moderna and Inovio Pharmaceuticals.
While it usually takes about 10 to 15 years to create a vaccine, the drug industry is hoping to compress that designated time within the next year.
We hope this works!
