Gujarat Corona update 15 september 2020
The WHO on Thursday spoke in support of the US Alliance for Democracy (ADD), saying it was "absolutely necessary" to suspend trials of the US company AstraZeneca's vaccine. Replying to a question on vaccine at a press conference, Chief Scientist Soumya Swaminathan said the side effects seen in a volunteer during the trial were serious. It's like a status alert.
Clinical trials come up and down, we need to be prepared for that. No need to despair. 2 things are important to us. The safety of the first human and the effectiveness of the second vaccine. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. Awaiting reports. The exact results of the vaccine trial will be available by the end of the year or at the beginning of the new year.
Vaccine race is not against the company or the country
"The race is to save lives," said Mike Ryan, WHO's emergency head on vaccines. It is not between any company or country. This race is against the virus. It will take time because we want the work to be done honestly. The epidemic has so far killed 9 lakh people.
"At the moment we are in a good position to control the virus," said Maria Wayne, an WHO epidemiologist. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. At present, we have to fight this virus together.
WHO Senior Advisor Dr. Not all trials have the same speed, Bruce said. That is the reality. People have to be recruited to go on trial and go through a certain process.
Only dexamethasone drug proved effective
WHO General Director Dr. "The program we've launched to fight Covid-19 has so far received 38 billion in funding," said Tedros Adhanom. That's only 10% more than we need. "One thing that bothers me is the lack of unity," Tedros said in response to a question. This condition becomes an opportunity for the virus when we proceed in different ways.
Dexamethasone has been shown to be very effective in patients suffering from severe Covid-19. Other drugs have not been shown to be effective. Some of them are also undergoing drug trials. Work is underway on about 180 vaccines and 35 vaccines are in the human trial stage.
It's been 6 months since the corona virus was declared an epidemic. The World Health Organization announced this on March 11. However the situation is still serious. There is still a long way to go before the vaccine arrives. Corona has infected 2 crore 83 lakh 22 thousand 716 people in the world. 9 lakh 13 thousand 900 people have died. The relief is that 2 crore 3 lakh 38 thousand 259 people have also recovered. The statistics are as per www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/...
