According to local media, a Nigerian team of scientists has found a unique vaccine to help prevent new coronavirus infection. The discovery of this vaccine was announced Friday by scientists at the Nigerian universities, led by a COVID-19 Research Group.
The Guardian Nigeria reported during a news conference that the vaccine was being developed for Africans locally in Africa under Dr. Oladipo Kolawole, a specialist in Medical Virology, Immunology, and Bioinformatics from the Adeleke University, Ede in Osun, and leader of the research team. The unnamed vaccine would also work for other races, according to Kolawole.
He said it would take 18 months to make the vaccine available for general use to the public since a lot of analysis and testing and medical approvals were needed.
He also said scientists were able, after testing some selected vaccinating development processes, to select the best potential COVID-19 vaccine candidates and to build latent constructions.
At least 13 COVID-19 experimental vaccines are currently tested on humans and over 120 candidates have been in earlier research stages according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
