White House picks five COVID vaccine candidates for Warp Speed initiative

White House picks five COVID vaccine candidates for Warp Speed initiative

"No vaccine will be presented unless it has been thoroughly examined, both in terms of safety and protection".

"I'm cautiously optimistic that with the multiple candidates that we have with different platforms, that we're going to have a vaccine that shows a degree of efficacy that would make it deployable", the doctor said.

But in some communities in the USA.

"If we mimic safely, natural infection with our vaccine we will be able to induce a response in a person that would be equivalent to the response that natural infection induces and thereby does prevent infection or at least prevent disease", he explained.

Collins said once a coronavirus vaccine comes on the market, there might have to be some effective communication.

That said, Dr. Fauci clarified that they will "start manufacturing doses of the vaccines way before we even know that the vaccine works". "We believe that BARDA will continue to support our program as it advances in development", the spokeswoman added.

Senior officials in the Trump administration say the federal government has selected five companies as the most likely candidates to manufacture a vaccine for the novel coronavirus.

Italian biotech firm Rottapharm Biotech is looking for more investors at home to help fund development of a vaccine against COVID-19 as the country looks to produce domestic supplies of medication to fight the pandemic, its CEO told Reuters.

He said that large-scale clinical trials of "several" vaccines will begin in July. The volunteers will go on with their lives and the researchers will tell who contracted Covid-19 and who did not.

US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Anthony Fauci on Tuesday said that he hoped to have "a couple hundred million doses" by the start of next year, CNN reported.

Keep in mind, remdesivir isn't even a vaccine.and it doesn't have formal USA approval yet.

The coronavirus will hang over the global economy for as long as it takes to develop a vaccine-restaurants won't operate at full capacity, concert venues won't be packed, and travel will be subdued until populations are immune.

"Obviously that's not our favorite". Phase 3 will include volunteers of all age groups. "That's one of the reasons to do the experiments and the research trials to find that out", he said.

While scientists race for an effective vaccine, directors of state health agencies are reportedly using the time to prepare immunization registries.
