BANGKOK: As the Thai government races to secure more COVID-19 vaccines from various sources, a group of medical scientists is preparing for the first clinical trial of a home-grown cure they are developing to fight the pandemic.

 

In April, they expect to inject 72 volunteers aged between 18 and 75 with ChulaCov19 – a vaccine that is being developed by the Medicine Faculty of Chulalongkorn University in Bangkok to fight the infectious disease.

 

“We’ll inject our first volunteer in April, probably around the end of the month. Within two months, we should know the results of Phase 1, which will show what appropriate dosages will be,” said Kiat Ruxrungtham, professor of medicine and director of Chulalongkorn University’s vaccine research centre – Chula VRC.

You would think they could just borrow the formula for AstraZeneca from India or find it on the internet somewhere?

 

I realize that pharmacies need to make money but in this case, of a world pandemic, patents should be off!

Silly boy. It's bleach. Injected, as per the recommendation of one world leader (errrmm, ex-leader).

How ludicrous.  Race to create, then trials, then ....well maybe ready in about 2 years.  Yet there are already vaccines on the market that they have ordered.  Are they trying to cancel their deals in order to save money and of course put the money back in the coffers, oops I meant their pockets and the owner of the company who will be producing said vaccine.  Have to show the world how great they are instead of just saying Thank you.  Might as well launch the vaccine and submarines into space on the rockets they will be building to go to the moon.  Are these people that daft?
