Laboratories around the world collaborate and work against the clock to develop a vaccine against the new coronavirus.
Now, after successfully testing it in mice, a team of researchers from Imperial College London (UK) believes they are close to being able to develop a vaccine against coronavirus disease.
The group led by the expert in Mucosal infections and immunology Robin Shattock is currently working with colleagues in Paris to test the antidote in monkeys, so if the results are positive, it could be tested in humans in June and they would have a vaccine within a year.
Researcher Paul McKay said that they analysed the results of injecting the vaccine into mice a month ago and says that "it works very, very well."
