The vaccines are being developed by a Beijing-based unit of Nasdaq-listed Sinovac Biotech, and by the Wuhan Institute of Biological Products, an affiliate of state-owned China National Pharmaceutical Group.

Earlier Friday, the government announced that 21 new coronavirus research projects from the University of Oxford, Imperial College London and Public Health England, among others, will benefit from funding worth around 14 million pounds (about 17.5 million US dollars). But we still don't know how fast they will proceed towards a vaccine and they can take several months to reach any point, he said. "Only then will have confidence it could be developed further and an accurate timescale". The expert group was led by Zhong Nanshan, academician at China Academy of Engineering, and consisted of 14 experts.

The university stressed the research has not yet been peer-reviewed with the information being released as part of its commitment to help inform Canada's COVID-19 response. It proposes to do so using a recombinant DNA platform, which produces an exact genetic match to proteins of the virus. All five directions were to be followed at the same time.

In the USA, a 44-year-old mother of two was the first person to be injected with a possible vaccine for COVID-19 - considered one of three frontrunners being developed - after responding to a callout on Facebook for volunteers in Seattle.

The team at Oxford University will start the first United Kingdom study of an experimental vaccine against COVID-19 next week.

Sanofi and GSK entered into a partnership on Tuesday to develop a potential coronavirus vaccine.

In an unprecedented time period, The Jenner Institute's team was able to develop the 10-liter manufacturing scale process based on the previously generated platform with MilliporeSigma, preparing us for the next round of scale-up efforts.

SIX Indian companies are working on a vaccine for COVID-19, joining global efforts to find a quick preventive for the deadly infection spreading rapidly across the world, says a top Indian scientist.

The fact that clinical testing has started does not mean the vaccines will be produced in the short term. TH: The primary outcome of the Phase I/II clinical trial for which we are now recruiting is to assess the safety of the vaccine in healthy individuals.

Meanwhile, all other directions have also made progress.

There will be 288 volunteers included in phase one, 216 of whom will be given different doses of the vaccine while the other 72 receive placebos.

While the world is in a virtual war of attrition against the COVID-19 coronavirus pandemic, leading scientific minds and organizations are our intelligence wing against the novel virus. "So, I have no doubt that one or more of the vaccine approaches are going to work here". "All research and development activities are in accordance with corresponding regulations and technological requirements".
