Israel Says Coronavirus Vaccine on the Horizon
As concerns mount across the globe with the fast-spreading outbreak of the coronavirus, Israeli researchers claim they have developed a vaccine against the sickness for poultry and are only three months away from testing a vaccine on humans. The research team from the Galilee Research Institute, Migal which specializes in the fields of biotechnology, environmental and agricultural science, have been developing the vaccine for the past four years and claims it could be modified for use in humans within three months because of a similar DNA structure in the virus that had spread from China. "There is an urgency around the world to develop a vaccine for the coronavirus in humans, so we are working around the clock to expedite the development process and achieve an effective vaccine for the COVID-19 virus over the next 8-10 weeks and move to safety trials in humans within 90 days," said Migal CEO David Zigdon. The vaccine developed for poultry is administered orally and the human vaccine offered by us is also expected to be administered orally." Zigdon said Migal is working night and day with potential partners to help accelerate the research process in humans needed to complete the final product development and regulatory process. So far, 82,000 people (78,500 in China) have been infected worldwide. Some 2,800 have died, 2,744 of which were in China. (VFI News)
Pray for the swift development of the coronavirus vaccine in Israel and other nations such as the USA whose scientists are working around the clock to find ways to combat this disease. Intercede also for the swift recovery of those who have been infected and for effective measures to slow the spread of the virus. Pray against unnecessary fear and panic that will have long-range economic and travel effects.
