The Vaccine and Infectious Disease Organization-International Vaccine Center(VIDO-InterVac), said a vaccine proved highly effective in ferrets, the animals used for the COVID-19 modeling. The University is undertaking critical research and contributing to global efforts to combat COVID-19, but officially they have not released the vaccine for COVID-19. Meanwhile, They have planned more trials in the coming months, including safety studies that could clear the way for human clinical trials.

In a statement, which stated that while several drug trials are ongoing, there is no proof that hydroxychloroquine or any other drug can cure or prevent COVID-19.

However, there are no reports of a home remedy for COVID-19 being developed by a Chinese student from Saskatchewan University.
