Clinical trials on human subjects using an experimental new coronavirus vaccine got under way at Oxford University in the UK on April 23, 2020. Scientists in a lab at one of the world’s top universities have an ambitious goal of preparing a vaccine by autumn 2020 if all goes well. Around the world, more than 100 research projects are being conducted to find a vaccine. Human trials have started in at least seven places around the world, including Seattle in the US and in Shanghai, China. But other research in China reportedly showed that the drug remdesivir flopped as a potential treatment for Covid-19 patients.
