Canada-China COVID-19 vaccine trials abandoned: National Research Council

Minister Erick Thohir said his side had calculated the cost of the Covid-19 vaccine.

Moderna is one of the US drugmakers seeing the most progress in the race to develop a cure for the novel coronavirus.

"We are getting our scientists to develop vaccines under "Operation Warp Speed".

According to a guideline for the clinical evaluation of COVID-19 vaccines recently released by the National Medical Products Administration, the vaccine should provide immunity for at least six months, preferably for more than a year. This candidate, which is being developed by Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadila, is in phase 1-2 of clinical trials.

A COVID-19 vaccine-development partnership between China's CanSino Biologics and Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia has been abandoned. Nine have candidates in human trials, more than in any other country.

According to Mango, data on the vaccines show that they were causing volunteers' bodies to produce a significant amount of neutralising antibodies.

The United Kingdom is set to train an order of health professionals who can vaccinate citizens against the coronavirus, once the vaccine hits the market after completion of successful trials of the vaccine, BBC reported.

The trial, to be conducted by the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR, B), will begin soon, Maleque said.

Dr. Doug Brown, chief executive of the British Society for Immunology, said he was confident all the safety requirements for any potential COVID-19 vaccine would be met under any emergency approval.

Premier Li Keqiang has also said that China will also offer priority access to Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

The Chinese military has permitted the use of the CanSino vaccine before the completion of large-scale final testing, the report said, citing a company filing.

The Russian president on Thursday praised a coronavirus vaccine that Russia approved for use earlier this month as effective and safe, a clear bid to address global skepticism about the shots that have only been studied for two months in a few dozen people.

Chinese firm Sinopharm is hoping to roll out its coronavirus vaccine candidate by the end of 2020 as well.
