The Coronavirus pandemic is scaring people very much. With so much research on proposed cures, it disheartening to know that there is still no vaccine available. Some people are thinking that there will be no cure. This is because there is still no vaccine available for other equally deadly diseases like HIV, Ebola virus, and dengue. This is the new point of concern because these diseases have also killed millions just like the path Coronavirus is on.
According to many officials, there is a worst-case possible, that is no vaccine can ever be developed. In order for a cure to be available fast, the population of the entire world is leaning on the shoulders of scientists. It is still very depressing to see that almost 40 years and 30 million deaths later HIV still has no cure. Dengue infects almost 500,000 people a year. According to WHO scientists are still searching for a vaccine, even after decades. It makes us a little heartbroken about the dream of seeing a cure for COVID-19.
Will we get a vaccine for Coronavirus
We have no idea if we will get a vaccine for Coronavirus or not. But that does not mean people need to give up on the search. We need to remember that, necessity is the mother of all inventions. So, if we try enough, we might just be able to get one. According to many researchers, the Coronavirus will stay with us for a long time, and extending lockdowns is not an economical choice. Experts say that there will be a rise in permanent remote working.
Recently a patient volunteered for test vaccinations at the Oxford Vaccine Group and Oxford’s Jenner Institute. According to its research article, the ChAdOx1-nCoV-19 is an adenoviral vector vaccine that attacks the SARS-CoV-2 viral protein.
The recent vaccine shows a lot of promise to become a permanent cure for Coronavirus. But nothing is sure yet. What do you think? Let me know in the comment section below.
