According to the World Health Organization, some of the vaccines being developed in the world for coronavirus infection are already undergoing clinical trials.
About 20 groups of scientists are developing vaccines for coronavirus infection in the world. This was announced at a press conference in Geneva on March 20 by representatives of the World Health Organization (WHO), CNBC reported.
Some of these vaccines are already undergoing clinical trials.
Representatives of WHO emphasized that it takes up to 18 months for a viable vaccine to enter the market, so the vaccines created are still far from being usable.
On March 19, The Wall Street Journal reported that in the UK, more than 20,000 volunteers will participate in a program to develop a vaccine for a new type of coronavirus.
