Reuters: Significant development in coronavirus vaccine
One of the most curious things about the corovirus outbreak that affects the whole world is whether a vaccine that can protect people from virus can be developed.
As of today, the number of people with Kovid-19 detected in Vuhan city, Hubey province of China, has reached 7 million 471 thousand 73 worldwide.
While the coronavirus epidemic slows down in some countries, it continues to increase its impact in some countries. While casualties are increasing rapidly in Latin America, the USA continues to be the place most affected by the epidemic.
Social isolation to protect against Covid-19 continues. While social distance and mask use are considered as the most important means of protection, the treatment of hospitalized patients continues.
Studies on developing vaccines against coronavirus are a matter of curiosity. Scientists from many countries started their vaccination studies from the first day. However, there has not been a great development in this regard yet.
HOPE FOR THE VACCINE
According to Reuters, there was a gratifying news from the Chinese scientists about the coronavirus vaccine.
In the news, it was stated that the Covid-19 vaccine developed as a result of the research of experts in China was tested on animals and the first results were promising.
VACCINE NAME “BBIBP-CorV”
Scientists called the vaccine “BBIBP-CorV”. The vaccine candidate was used on animals, and monkey experiments gave positive results.
VIRUS CAN BE AVOIDED TO COMMUNICATE IN THE CELLS
It is stated in the hopeful vaccine study that antibody formation is achieved and no harmful side effects are observed.
Vaccine candidate BBIBP-CorV allowed monkeys, mice, Guinea pigs, and rabbits to produce large amounts of anitibodies in their body.
The body’s having these antibodies prevents the virus from infecting and infecting the cells.
The BBIBP-CorV vaccine was developed by the Beijing State Institute of Biological Products of the Chinese State Pharmacology Group owned by the Chinese state.
According to the officials, the BBIBP-CorV vaccine is a candidate to be one of the 5 vaccines tested in humans in China.
WILL IT BE EFFECTIVE ON PEOPLE?
It is curiously expected whether the vaccine, which gives positive results in animal experiments, will have the same effect on people.
Chinese scientists have announced that a test involving more than 1000 people is on the way.
The efficacy of the vaccine will be determined only after human experiments have been carried out.
If antibodies are found in the body of people who have been vaccinated, Covid-19’s damage to the cells will be prevented.
