While the pandemic has slowed down the pace of the world dramatically, the world now steps up to implement major retaliatory efforts. In order to beat the pandemic, scientists from all around the world are trying their best to come up with a vaccine that protects people from the virus.
The world’s biggest Covid-19 vaccine got underway on Monday as 30,000 planned volunteers stepped up to these trials to shots which are created by the US government. The US happens to be one of the many countries in the race to find the vaccine to the virus.
While there is no evidence that these vaccines will works, it proves to be crucial in understanding the nature of the virus and its transmission that will eventually help finding the vaccine or cure.
Those who volunteer for the programme won’t know if they are getting the real vaccine shot or just a dummy version of it. After administering two doses, the scientists will closely follow up on which group experiences infections as they go about their daily routines, especially in those areas where the transmission of the pandemic is higher.
On the other hand, there are countries that are starting off with smaller trial groups. Countries like China and Britain have started off with trials earlier this month but they began with smaller final-stage tests in Brazil and other areas where the countries are severely hit by the pandemic.
Experts suggest however that even if everything goes right with the studies, getting a perfect solution to the coronavirus would still be a far cry.
