Hopes for a coronavirus vaccine this year have been boosted by a breakthrough in Oxford human trials

18 days ago   |   By Business Insider

Scientists developing a coronavirus vaccine believe they have made a breakthrough in early trials of a jab which could offer "double protection" against the virus.
Blood samples taken from the group of 500 UK volunteers who were given a dose of the vaccine developed both antibodies and T-cells in response, according to the Daily Telegraph.
A total of 124 coronavirus vaccines are currently in development, with 10 currently being tested in people.
Scientists do not yet know whether it is possible for any vaccine to give a user long-term immunity to COVID-19.
