There are many countries in the world that are testing the last or third phase of the corona vaccine. Russia's Sputnik V is effective against Corona, Russia believes, but this statement from WHO has raised concerns about the Corona vaccine.
The World Health Organization even says that by 2021, there is no hope of people getting corona vaccine supplements. WHO spokesman Margaret Harris says that corona vaccines in many countries in the world are at the level of clinical trials. But none of these vaccines is such that it can be said to be effective.
Harris says there is no hope for a comprehensive vaccination even by mid-2021. Harris states that the Phase III trial of any vaccine is taking longer because we want to see how effective a vaccine is against the corona virus and whether the vaccine has any side effects.
Ted Ross, director of the Center for Vaccine and Immunology at the University of Georgia, believes that the first vaccine for Corona may not be as effective. Ted Ross is also working on a vaccine for the corona virus that will go through the clinical trial stage in 2021. 88 vaccines are in the pre-clinical trial stage in labs around the world.
