(ORDO NEWS) — Anthony Fauci, an American infectious disease expert, confirmed that work is underway at the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases to develop a new Covid-19 virus. The idea is explained by the fact that scientists need to fully test the effectiveness of a certain vaccine against coronavirus.
As a rule, the use of an artificial strain occurs when the virus does not spread on a large scale. So far, there is no need to create a strain, but scientists decided to play it safe so as not to waste precious time in the future.
When the need arises to start research into the effectiveness of a vaccine, experts will be fully prepared for this. The tests will take only a few months. It may be necessary to infect volunteers with the developed strain to evaluate the effectiveness of the new agent. Before making such a difficult decision, the institute will analyze all the technical and ethical aspects of the method.
A couple of months ago, the scientific world started talking about the effectiveness of blood plasma from people who had been ill. So, plasma is able to save patients with coronavirus who are in serious condition. Further studies have confirmed this fact. They also showed that plasma treatment is not only effective but also safe. The experiments were attended by 300 people. Vaccines should be available soon: WHO has compiled a list of developments that are in the final stage of testing. There are a total of 9 vaccine options. Recall that they are actively developing in the UK and the USA.
