COVID -19 Vaccine: When to expect one?

While the novel Corona Virus is spreading rapidly across continents, Scientists from all over the world are at their best in the lab trying to figure out a vaccine for the virus.

Teams of scientists and doctors are working and testing the different prototypes of various vaccines in animals as well humans to finally figure out a cure for the pandemic COVID-19, reportedly to be the most devastating disaster of the century. When normally a prolific vaccine takes 5-10 years to fully develop, test, prove, and manufacture economically, scientists are forced to test and practice untested class of vaccines in human bodies to harness the novel corona with immediate effects. As we know from several epidemics and pandemics that vaccination is the most successful of all other treatments (e.g. Smallpox, Measles). The rigorous testing phase
of vaccines is extremely significant as if not proper, can harm and cause damage to the human body.

Legendry drug makers and companies are doing their best in research and analysis for the development of a cure for the Corona virus. There had been many rumors from several parts of the world claiming that America has readied the vaccine, China has found the cure, Germany, Israel is finalizing on the vaccines, etc….. Media reports and tweets on the vaccines had been the hot topic of discussion throughout the week.

The latest reports from the WHO states that a proper vaccine for the novel Corona virus would be ready in 18 months, which is hopeful but not a relief based on the present condition we are undergoing. In the meantime, to prevent the spread of the virus, what we can do is only social distancing and isolation. Stick to the government instructions and guidelines of the medical
experts.

More than 35 famous companies are on a race to find a cure for the virus immediately. Some of the companies in the US include BioNTech SE and Pfizer Inc., Gilead Sciences Inc., GlaxoSmithKline, Heat Biologics Inc., Inovio Pharmaceuticals Inc., Johnson & Johnson, Moderna Inc., Novavax Inc., and many more. Reports indicate that clinical trials are scheduled from March to August 2020. Some existing drugs and solutions have been restructured and tested to make it quick and ready for deployment.

Israel is said to have the DNA structure of the virus which could be a breakthrough in the innovation of vaccine as per the Israeli daily Ha’aretz.

There are also unanimous reports from various doctors and scientists warning us about a future seasonal infection of the Coronavirus, as it has already been through the world fully and its existence in one or other forms cannot be neglected. It is predicted to more prevailing in the countries with more winter and cold weather as the virus often gets degraded fast in hotter countries and the infection rate remains comparatively low. The virus is suspected to have a fat layer on its peripherals which burns and gets dried quickly.

As the vaccination testing process involves several steps and takes months to years, we can extend all the possible support and keep ourselves at home isolated.
