COVID-19 vaccine protects monkeys from new Corona virus. Will this work for humans too??



Chinese researchers say they have successfully protected monkeys with a coronavirus vaccine — the first instance of a trial working on an animal.

Scientists at Sinovac Biotech, a private Beijing based company, dosed out two versions of its vaccine to eight rhesus macaque monkeys. Three weeks later when the monkeys were exposed to the deadly pathogen, none developed a full-blown infection, according to the study published recently in the preprint server bioRxiv.
