Australian covid vaccines

CSIRO has begun testing two vaccines as Australia leads the world race to halt the coronavirus.

@CSIRO·Our researchers have started pre-clinical trials of two potential COVID-19 vaccines at our Australian Animal Health Laboratory in Geelong.

It could be “a real disaster” if a coronavirus vaccine is produced without requisite testing and confirmation “that it’s safe,” says Infectious Diseases Specialist and Associate Professor at the Australian National University Sanjaya Senanayake.

Those of you who received the BCG vaccine for tuberculosis as kids (includes most of us born in Pakistan/India/etc) may show less morbidity and mortality from COVID-19.

Trials are under way in Australia and the Netherlands.
