A potential corona virus the vaccine is being developed by a team of scientists in Australia proven to neutralize the virus in pre-clinical tests that occur before trials in humans.
This team is one of many in the world working to make a vaccine to prevent COVID-19, which has spread to every continent except Antarctica since the end of last year. More than 217,000 people so far have died, and nearly 935,000 have survived, according to Johns Hopkins University. US. is the country with the best known case, as shown in Statista the chart below.
The vaccine developed was found to increase antibody levels to neutralize the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which causes COVID-19. This is an initial result and does not mean the vaccine will have the same effect on humans.
However, Paul Young, head of the School of Chemistry and Molecules Biosciences at the University of Queensland who led the project, the results said is what they expect at this stage.
“We are very pleased that the strength of the antibody response is even better than they arebserved in samples from COVID“19 patients recovered,” he said in a statement.
Kanta Subbarao, from the Peter Doherty Institute for Infection and Immunity at the University of Melbourne, tested samples from the University of Queensland. His team found that the vaccine produces high levels of antibodies that can neutralize coronavirus in cell culture.
Subbarao said: “This is a very important finding because an immune response similar to the SARS vaccine in animal models has been shown to lead to protection from infection.”
Keith Chappell, a molecular biologist at the University of Queensland, specialization in vaccine design and lead projects at the institution. He said the team wanted to have a “strong package” of data about safety and safety preclinical test before starting experiments in humans. The team hopes to get more results in early June.
Chappell said the progress of his team would not have been possible without the help of collaborators at Viroclinics Xplore in the Netherlands, which has tested the ability of vaccines in animals.
Progress by other teams that make vaccines has also been reported this week. The human trials will begin with a vaccine developed by a team at Oxford University in England.
More than 1,000 people are expected to take part in the trial. Half will be given an experimental vaccine, while the other half will receive a vaccine for meningitis. To see if it works, the team will compare the number of COVID-19 infections in the control group with those given the vaccine.
Other vaccines developed by biopharmaceutical companies in China will soon be tested in clinical trials in Australia, the state-owned Xinhua news agency reports.
Center for Disease Control and Prevention Advice on the Use of Face Coverings to Slow Spread COVID-19
- The CDC recommends wearing cloth face covers in public where social distance measures are difficult to maintain.
- A simple face cloth can help slow the spread of the virus by those who are infected and by those who have no symptoms.
- Face cloth can be made from household items. Guides offered by CDC. (https: //www.CDC.gov /corona virus/ 2019-ncov/ Prevents pain /diy-clothing face cover.html)
- Cloth face covers should be washed regularly. Washing machine is enough.
- Lift the face mask safely without touching your eyes, nose and mouth, and wash your hands immediately after removing the cover.
Suggestions of the World Health Organization to avoid spreading corona virus disease (COVID-19)
- Clean hands as often as possible with soap and water, or rub alcohol-based hands.
- Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing; when treating sick people; before, during and after food preparation; before eating; after using the toilet; when hands look dirty; and after handling animals or waste.
- Maintain a distance of at least 1 meter (3 feet) from anyone who coughs or sneezes.
- Avoid touching your hands, nose, and mouth. Don’t spit in public.
- Cover your mouth and nose with tissue or elbows that bend when you cough or sneeze. Discard the tissue immediately and clean your hands.
- Avoid close contact with other people if you have symptoms.
- Stay home if you feel unwell, even with mild symptoms such as headaches and colds, to avoid the possibility of spreading the disease to medical facilities and others.
- If you experience serious symptoms (fever, cough, difficulty breathing) seek medical attention early and contact your local health authority first.
- Record any recent contact with others and travel details to give to authorities who can track and prevent the spread of disease.
- Stay up to date on COVID-19 developments issued by health authorities and following their guidelines.
Use of masks and gloves
- Healthy people only need to wear a mask if they care for sick people.
- Wear a mask if you cough or sneeze.
- The mask is effective when used in combination with frequent hand washing.
- Don’t touch the mask when wearing it. Clean your hands if you touch the mask.
- Learn how to wear, remove and properly dispose of a mask. Clean hands after removing the mask.
- Do not reuse disposable masks.
- Regular hand washing is more effective against arrest COVID-19 rather than wearing rubber gloves.
- That COVID-19 the virus can still be removed in rubber gloves and transmitted by touching your face.
