China raises hopes with Covid-19 vaccine trial


For the first time in months, there is good news for humanity in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak.  The first clinical trial of the novel coronavirus vaccine in China has begun, and photos and videos of volunteers taking part in the project began to circulate on social media over the weekend.  It is thought to be the first China-made novel coronavirus vaccine being tested on humans. As a subunit vaccine, it contains only a fragment of the pathogen to stimulate a protective immune response.
