Qld researchers close to vaccine breakthrough

Some good news this morning, with reports that Queensland researchers are making substantial progress in developing a coronavirus vaccine.

The team at the University of Queensland say it could be just a couple of months before their potential vaccine is in mass production.

They’re part of around 100 researching teams around the world, working for a vaccine to put an end to the coronavirus crisis.


Researchers report the immunisation is working as predicted, with tests on mice showing good signs.

It’s understood they’re hoping to have it produced by July, before it is then tested properly on humans.

Then it could be in mass production by September, with around 1 million doses ready for distribution by the end of the year.

Doses will reportedly be handed out to frontline workers and the elderly first, and could be more widely available by early 2021.
