At the moment, there are various vaccines and coronavirus treatments in the works. Just the other day, we were addressing the fact that there’s one new potential treatment for the novel coronavirus that has just been addressed. Business Insider offered more details on the matter.
Also, it’s been revealed that a breakthrough aerosol-based drug treatment could drastically reduce the number of new deaths among the people infected with the novel coronavirus.
There’s more good news about an escape route from this pandemic that managed to change our lives for good. At the beginning of this week, it’s been reported that vaccine researchers from Oxford University and the pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca revealed the results from a “Phase I/II trial.”
They suggested that their product might be able to generate immunity without causing too much harm.
In a similar manner but at smaller scale results. There’s been a report during the past week that mentioned another candidate vaccine produced by the biotech firm Moderna, in collaboration with the US National Institutes of Health.
Potential downsides of the vaccines
Both these groups, along more others, are pushing ahead into the final phase of testing. The online publication Wired notes that it’s important that people understand this work, and it’s important to note that neither of these two vaccines has been focusing too much on their potential downsides, according to the same online publication that we mentioned above.
It’s important to address all the risks that they are posing, even if they are not life-threatening. Check out more data regarding the minor side effects of the vaccines.
