Adult volunteers sought for COVID-19 vaccine trials

Covid-19 Group of rich countries have secured more than half of future vaccine supply says Oxfam

"We need a people's vaccine, not a profit vaccine", Vera said.

Following an investigation into the United Kingdom incident, the vaccine efficacy study has resumed.

Deliveries to India could begin in late 2020, it said, adding this was subject to the completion of trials and the vaccine's registration by regulatory authorities in India. "But what I think a lot of people fail to realize is that the phase three studies are critical", said Sandra Adams, a professor of biology and virology at Montclair State University. "Today we are expanding our possibilities to ensure that European Union citizens and citizens around the world can gradually resume daily life and feel safe again", Kyriakides said.

"Member states are aware that they can make additional contributions to the ESI if we want to extend the portfolio, as there is only a finite amount of funding available for the ESI", a Commission spokesman said on Friday, but declined to give further details. This way, the World Health Organization can guarantee a market for vaccines to manufacturers and negotiate a fair price.

"This second agreement is yet another milestone in our EU Vaccines Strategy". WHO reports that there are now 170 candidates for a potential vaccine being tracked by the organization. An independent estimate by global brokerage Sanford Bernstein estimated that the government is likely to vaccinate only 30% of the population against the infectious respiratory disease at a cost of $2 billion over three years. As of Wednesday night, Moderna had enrolled 25,296 participants. In addition to receiving two injections, volunteers will have to be tested for COVID-19 and keep a diary of any symptoms or side effects they experience during the testing period.

Barbados plans to remove Queen as head of state and become republic
At Buckingham Palace, the queen's central London residence, a spokesperson said the idea "was not out of the blue". Queen Elizabeth II has been Head of State of Barbados since its independence from the British empire in 1966.

Available doses would be very limited in the first few months and given to priority populations such as senior government officials, essential workers and the elderly. The organisation said that this could mean that almost two-thirds of the world's population would not have a vaccine until at least 2022. They've more than tripled since the beginning of the year.

Adams said volunteers would be monitored at every step during the study, but warned of the risk that participants could contract COVID-19 and thereby spread it. "This is not like the common cold", she said.

"The pipeline has matured with our Covid-19 vaccine in a Phase 3 study and four candidates in Phase 2 studies", Moderna's Chief Executive Officer Stephane Bancel said in a statement.

The AstraZeneca vaccine trial in the United Kingdom resumed after a safety review was completed, while another AstraZeneca trial in the US remains on hold.

"Wealthy nations representing just 13 per cent of the world's population have already cornered more than half (51 per cent) of the promised doses of leading Covid-19 vaccine candidates", the report said.
