Hong Kong researchers have already developed a vaccine for the deadly Wuhan coronavirus, Hong Kong University Professor and infectious diseases expert Dr. Yuen Kwok-yung said, per South China Morning Post.
“We have already produced the vaccine, but it will take a long time to test on animals,” Yuen said.
The professor did not specify when it would be ready for patients. However, he said that it would take months to test the vaccine on animals and at least another year to conduct clinical trials on humans before it was fit for use.
“If the vaccine appears effective and safe in a number of animal species, it will go into clinical trials on humans. This takes at least one year even if expedited,” Yuen said.
If proven safe to humans, it would be co-developed by Stemirna Therapeutics— a Shanghai-based biotechnology company.
Stemirna Therapeutics Company CEO Li Hangwen said no more than 40 days would be needed to manufacture vaccine samples, which would then be sent for tests and brought to clinics “as soon as possible”.
