There’s hopeful news coming out of the Israeli Institute for Biological Research. Scientists there say they could announce a major breakthrough for a vaccine for the new coronavirus COVID-19 in just a matter of days.
However, there’s still a long process of pre-clinical and clinical trials is still to follow and it could take months before the vaccination is considered effective and safe to use.
The institute, located in the town of Nes Tziona was established in 1952 as part of the Israel Defense Forces’ Science Crops. It is world-renowned for research and development. Their 50-strong team of researchers and scientists are chosen for their extensive experience and knowledge.
The Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the institute to devote their resources to developing a vaccine for COVID-19 on February 1.
