University of Cambridge to begin trials of covid-19 vaccine

The university of Cambridge has released a confirmation that there are plans to begin the trials of a vaccine of covid-19 , this will not only be beneficial for only covid19 but also all the kinds of corona virus that is found in humans and animals.

“Our approach involves 3D computer modelling of the SARS-CoV-2 [Covid-19] virus’ structure. It uses information on the virus itself as well as its relatives SARS, MERS and other coronaviruses carried by animals that threaten to spill-over’ to humans again to cause future human epidemics,” this has been said by Professor Jonathan Heeney who is the head of the Laboratory of Viral Zoonotics  .  He is also the founder of DIOSynVax, a Cambridge spin-out company.

 

 

 

 

The revelation further says that ” we are looking for   chinks in a  crucial pieces of the virus that we can use to construct the vaccine to direct the immune response in the right direction. Ultimately we aim to make a vaccine that will not only protect from SARS-CoV-2, but also other related coronaviruses that may spill over from animals to humans,” revealed reports.
