CoronaVirus (COVID19) vaccine trial set to start today

As of 15th March 2020, there have been 174,614 people infected by this deadly virus and over 6600 people have died globally. Coronavirus is now a pandemic as there is no vaccine or cure for this virus yet. The worst thing about COVID19 is it spreads from person to person.

There are currently 90,000 active cases in which 84,000 are in mild condition and 6000 people are in critical condition.

Vaccine Trial for COVID19

A human clinical trial is set to start today. In this trial, the patient will be given a vaccine shot that will determine if this shot is beneficial or not. This trial is funded by The National Institutes of Health. This trial was supposed to start in April. However, because of the sudden change in the situation worldwide, they escalated the trial. The trial is set to start at Kaiser Permanente Washington Research Institute in Seattle.

National Institutes of Health is not the only institute working for the cure, there are many other health centers and institutes. Some of them are working on a temporary vaccine so that they can focus on a lifetime cure.
