The vaccine for COVID-19 is ready.

Currently, no approved vaccines exist to prevent or cure the infection caused by the COVID-19.With the COVID-19 cases worldwide at a steep rise, scientists are pushing forward to develop vaccines and treatments to curb the pandemic. Most of the vaccines are still being tested in clinical trials to examine if they are effective against COVID-19. About one hundred and forty vaccines are in initial development, and around twenty-four are now being tested on people in clinical trials. Oxford University's COVID-19 vaccine is likely to be ready by the end of 2020. A team of scientists from Oxford University is reportedly developing a safe, effective, and accessible vaccine against COVID-19. They have completed phase I and phase II trails. The earlier results have shown encouraging results for phase III trials. The university is working with the UK-based global biopharmaceutical company AstraZeneca to further develop and produce the COVID-19 vaccine on a large scale. Adrian Hill, Oxford Vaccine Group Co-Director, reiterated that the vaccine would be ready by the end of 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19 including symptoms, prevention and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organisation or your national healthcare authority.
