We have been told that the development of a vaccine is not possible because of the need to test it prior to distribution. However in an amazing circumstance it seems an Israeli laboratory had already been working on a vaccine that is effective against the corona virus family and that it is believed it could be available within 3 months.
The research facility in question is The Galilee Research Institute known as MIGAL. Over the past four years the veterinary research group have been working on developing a vaccine to counter infectious bronchitis virus (IBV) This causes a bronchial disease in chickens and othr poultry which has already undergone preclinical trials.
Dr. Chen Katz is MIGAL’s biotechnology group leader has stated,
“Given the urgent global need for a human coronavirus vaccine, we are doing everything we can to accelerate development,” MIGAL CEO David Zigdon said. The vaccine could “achieve safety approval in 90 days,” he said.
The CEO of MIGAL David Zigdon said. The vaccine could “achieve safety approval in 90 days,” he said.It will be an oral vaccine, making it particularly accessible to the general public”.
