A vaccine for the Chinese Coronavirus may never come due to the fact that the virus is fading so rapidly.
An Oxford University vaccine trial has only a 50 per cent chance of success because coronavirus is fading so rapidly in Britain, a project co-leader has warned.
The warning comes as new data reveals that there are now 224 vaccines in development around the world – almost double the total of just a month ago.
Professor Adrian Hill said an upcoming Oxford vaccine trial, involving 10,000 volunteers, threatened to return “no result” because of low transmission of COVID-19 in the community.
Professor Adrian Hill said that the vaccine trial is a race against the virus disappearing.
“It is a race, yes. But it’s not a race against the other guys. It’s a race against the virus disappearing, and against time,” he said. “At the moment, there’s a 50 per cent chance that we get no result at all.”
Hill said that of 10,000 people recruited to test the vaccine in the coming weeks â€” some of whom will be given a placebo â€” he expected fewer than 50 people to catch the virus. If fewer than 20 test positive, then the results might be useless, he warned.
“We’re in the bizarre position of wanting COVID to stay, at least for a little while. But cases are declining.”
This story is truly amazing. The narrative has been we can’t open up until we get a vaccine. Now, the facts on the ground seem to claim that we may not get a vaccine because the virus simply leaves to fast.
I also love how this professor says some are hoping for the vaccine to stay so they could make a vaccine. Wouldn’t we rather not have a vaccine? Wouldn’t we rather just see the virus leave?
