COVID-19 Cases In Texas Decrease While Vaccine In Final Testing Stages
Could the COVID-19 days be numbered?
On Monday (July 27th) the National Institutes of Health and Moderna Inc. are in the final testing stages of an experimental COVID-19 vaccine, per the Washington Post.
Close to 30,000 volunteers from the U.S. will be injected at different sites across the country with either the vaccine or placebo which will track their day-to-day lives to see which group of individuals have more COVID-19 infections.
Dr. Anthony Fauci spoke more about the vaccine testing:
We are participating today in the launching of a truly historic event in the history of vaccinology.
Now even though the vaccine results will not be available until November or December, it is truly great news that a remedy could be on the way to combat the virus. If you would like to volunteer for a COVID-19 vaccine study you can click here.
