BRITISH SCIENTISTS WILL START TESTING A VACCINE AGAINST CHINESE CORONAVIRUS IN ANIMALS

Scientists from Imperial College London have made a breakthrough in developing a vaccine against Chinese coronavirus. The vaccine will be tested in animal next week.

The head of research, Professor Robin Shattock, said that the scientists have managed to reduce significantly the laboratory stage of research up to 2 weeks, whereas this process usually takes two to three years.

According to Mr. Shattock, the British specialists may get the finished medicine in a few months.

Professor Shattock said that in the summer the spread of Chinese coronavirus might slow, but one should not forget about the threat of a second wave of the disease. Therefore, the availability of the vaccine is necessary.
