WHO has clarified on the Coronavirus Vaccine – trials are in the final stages, but that does not mean the vaccine is close

As nearly half a dozen companies in the world are in the final stages of trials for a coronavirus vaccine, it is believed that the infection will be treated by early next year.

Trials of the coronavirus vaccine are ongoing worldwide. Trials of many pharmaceutical companies have reached the stage of human trials. In such a situation, it is believed that by the beginning of next year, the corona vaccine may be launched. However, the World Health Organization (WHO) has clarified that the final stage of the corona vaccine being tested does not necessarily mean that the vaccine is fully prepared and good to reach the public.

Mike Ryan, executive director of the WHO’s Health Emergency Program, said that coming to Phase-3 meant the vaccine was being offered to the general population for the first time. So that it can be found out whether this vaccine can protect common people from common infections.

Let us know that there are about half a dozen vaccine human trials in the world. These include the potential vaccine from Oxford University to the potential vaccine of American company Pfizer, Moderna and Indian company Bharat Biotech and Zydus Cadila. Apart from this, around 150 other vaccines are on development stage.

Let us know that till now most of the initial trials of vaccine have been safe. However, trials are conducted on very few people in these stages. According to Mike Ryan, the trial stage is the doors through which the vaccine has to pass, it is not actually a gate, but a means to find out how large a vaccine can save people.

Significantly, earlier WHO director Tedrose Adenholm Gebrehus has said that he expects scientists to find safe and effective vaccines, but this is not always guaranteed. We cannot always say that we have a vaccine, sometimes we will and never will. Let me tell you that Gebrehesus’ remarks came after US President Donald Trump’s statement that the US could have a vaccine to fight Corona by the end of this year.
