GOOD NEWS: finally Coronavirus cure is out!

Human testing is set to start very soon.

First Batch of Coronavirus Vaccine Has Been Shipped, Human Testing Starts  GOOD NEWS: finally Coronavirus cure is out! 539382C4 C6F2 42C1 A3D5 8A8002294E07

  • In the race to find cure for the deadly coronavirus, a biotech company based in Cambridge, Massachusetts has announced that the first batch of vaccine has been shipped for human testing.
  • The first vial of cure was sent to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) in Bethesda, Maryland.
  • Moderna Therapeutics was able to come up with a vaccine.
  • Human testing is expected to commence as early as April.

In the race to create a vaccine for the deadly coronavirus that has infected numerous countries worldwide, a biotech company called Moderna Therapeutics, has announced the shipment of the first batch of coronavirus vaccine. This development was made 42 days after Chinese scientists released the genetic sequence of the virus that’s now called SARs-CoV-2.

In a report written by Time, Moderna sent its first coronavirus vial to the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) division of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland. This institution will prepare the vaccine and conduct testing on human volunteers by April.

The report also said that the NIH scientists will be testing two viruses simultaneously. Experts added that they have been already testing an anti-viral drug called “remdesivir” for patients with Ebola. The remdesivir vaccine has been injected to a SARs-CoV-2 patient. This trial was the first drug to be tested in treating COVID-19.

The first patient who volunteered in this groundbreaking research is an American who was tested positive of coronavirus after boarding the Diamond Princess cruise ship. Additionally, other patients who were tested of the virus will also be part of the study.

Based on the preliminary study, remdesivir vaccine showed significant result when injected to animals that were infected with two related coronaviruses: one, the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARs); and two, the Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS). The scientists said human volunteers will be randomly picked to be injected either with the drug or a placebo for 10 days. There will be a series of blood tests, nose and throat swabs every two days of the drug testing, “to track the amount of virus ” in the volunteers’ bodies.

“Even if the drug shows some efficacy in keeping blood levels of SARs-CoV-2 from growing, it could help to contain (the) spread of the infection” the report in TIME, stated.

Scientists explained that they were able to develop the COVID-19 vaccine due to a “relatively new genetic method” that does not require huge samples of virus, compared to the previous process. They instead boosted that vaccine with this mRNA, a genetic material the was sourced from DNA that makes proteins. Moderna explained that they loaded the COVID-19 vaccine with mRNA and started creating the protein for “other immune cells to recognize” and mark the virus “for destruction”.

Moderna Therapeutics president Dr. Stephen Hoge explained that this type of protein is described like a software molecule in biology. The vaccine, he added, is likened to a software which will immediately be programmed in the body once it is injected. The mRNA forms proteins that can generate an “immune response” against the virus.

COVID-19: FG provides N102bn intervention in healthcare sector — Minister Ahmed 2 742x375 1

The Federal Government has provided N102.5 billion in resources for direct interventions in the country’s healthcare sector, Mrs Zainab Ahmed, Minister of Finance, Budget and National Planning, has said.

Ahmed made this known at a news conference on fiscal stimulus measures in response to COVID-19 pandemic and oil prices fiscal shock in Abuja on Monday.

She explained that of this sum, N6.5 billion had already been made available to the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) for critical expenditure.

She stated that the Federal Government remained committed to supporting the states in these difficult times, particularly those states that were currently battling with the COVID-19 pandemic.

According to her, Lagos State has already been provided with N10 billion in emergency funding.

She stated that as the situation in the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and other states at the forefront of the government’s efforts unfolds, explicit criteria were to be agreed with the Federal Ministry of Health and NCDC to determine when funds would be released to the affected states and the FCT.

“More funds are to be provided from the proposed COVID-19 Crisis Intervention Fund to address emerging and priority funding needs as these arise.

‘To complement these initiatives, we are taking steps to activate, release and, where necessary, enhance the hazard allowances provided in the remuneration structure of the federal health sector workers. The Federal Government enjoins the affected states to take similar measures.

“We take this opportunity to recognise the patriotism and sacrifice of our frontline healthcare workers, whose critical roles in combatting the COVID-19 pandemic place their health and lives at risk.

“We thank all of you for your heroic efforts to protect your fellow citizens from disease and death. The Federal Government hereby assures our frontline healthcare workers of adequate insurance, compensation and support during, and in the aftermath of the COVID-19 Pandemic.”

“I wish to reassure our citizens and residents that the Federal Government remains committed to working closely with the National Assembly, the State Governments, Multilateral Organisations, the Donor Community, and the International Community at large, to alleviate the suffering of our people due to the ongoing economic and healthcare challenges.

“I would like to particularly appreciate the extensive understanding and support that we have received from our development partners, especially the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the African Development Bank and the Islamic Development Bank in our efforts to grapple with the COVID-19 crisis” she added.
