Coronavirus: ‘Vaccine produced in UK for fear US will take it’

published on July 17, 2020

For the vaccine hunters there's no rest this is where we designed the prototype vaccine such as the urgency that scientists at Imperial College London had a prototype in a matter of weeks they're one of two British teams in a global race to prove their coronavirus

Vaccine is safe and effective only science works in the very safe and steady way and do you feel the pressure then to deliver definitely there's a pressure to deliver we just recognized like everybody else how much we need to

Prevent fatalities and how much we need to get the economy up and running again it has affected everybody's life tests are underway on volunteers their antibodies and T cells made by their immune systems analyzed back in the lab

Results are closely guarded the vaccine contains a snippet of the virus's genetic blueprint it's a technique never used before but it should be quick to make 10 million doses a week but that's nowhere near enough and the scientists

Are well aware that countries such as the United States could try to corner the supply just as it did with the treatment REM dezer veer luckily we're not making our vaccine in the United States so we sit outside of that it is a

Deliberate policy it's something that we were encouraged to do by the UK government to make sure that there is capacity in the UK for manufacturing and you know we are looking to work with partners which would also be able to

Provide the vaccine without any of those restrictions British vaccine trials have been targeted by Russian state-sponsored hackers according to the UK government but it's not other nations stealing the formula that scientists fear the most

What we're much more concerned about and I think that the world will wake up to very soon as as soon as one vaccine works it will be the issue of fake vaccines because if people can't access the vaccine there will be people out

There he'll say oh I've got this vaccine I managed to get a special deal come and buy the vaccine from me and that is much more of a concern that that people will start to profiteer out of selling fake vaccines to vulnerable populations

Worldwide more than 20 prototype vaccines are now in clinical trials with 130 or so following behind the US company moderna has already shown its vaccine triggers an immune response and there are encouraging noises from Oxford

Researchers that their results due next week will also show that on track but they're still a long way to go in the race against the virus
