A group of scientists from the United Kingdom has successfully developed a cure. If everything works out according to plan, the proper vaccine can save around 30 million lives by September. UK Secretary, Alok Sharma, provided an update on the Vaccine Taskforce, a coordinated effort to produce COVID-19 cure by the government, industry, and academia.
However, the method behind producing these vaccines are quite amusing. The new vaccine has already entered Phase I of the testing cycle. But the vaccine was first put to test with a monkey to see its effectivity. Currently, the work is going on at Oxford University and Imperial College, London. All of the test participants are under close observation of the medical panel. But the government applauds the speed at which Oxford University came up with this plan.
Our top researchers are working rapidly to find a #coronavirus vaccine, coordinated by experts in our Vaccine Taskforce.

Coronavirus Vaccine: Research to save the world
Oxford University has a complete plan ready in order to support the mass manufacturing of the trial vaccines. They have successfully made an agreement with the pharmaceutical giant, Astra Zeneca. But, this means that once the result of the cure is out, the company can commercialize the vaccine. This will help reach every person globally. Even you can help researchers produce the vaccine for Coronavirus.
As an initial agreement, Oxford has planned for 100 million doses by the end of 2020. However, the United Kingdom will remain the first country to receive the COVID-19 cure. The scientists will make sure that the finished product does not contain any side effects or other issues. The proposed cure may help eradicate the Coronavirus pandemic.
