New Experimental Vaccine
An experimental coronavirus vaccine developed by Oxford University has protected six monkeys from “heavy quantities” of the pathogen — a promising breakthrough in the worldwide race for a cure.
Researchers at the National Institute of Health Rocky Mountain Laboratory injected the six rhesus macaque monkeys with the Oxford concoction, then exposed them to “heavy quantities” of COVID-19 — exposure that had consistently sickened other monkeys in the lab, the New York Times reported Monday.
But 28 days later, all the chimps were still healthy. After a Swiss team has declared the entire population of Switzerland could get a Covid-19 jab by october, and a new Chinese vaccine that prevents all monkeys heavily infected to get the disease, it is the 3rd hope given to the world in one week for a better future.
