This paper investigates how air temperature and humidity influence the transmission of COVID-19. After estimating the serial interval of COVID-19 from 105 pairs of the virus carrier and the infected, we calculate the daily effective reproductive number, R, for each of all 100 Chinese cities with more than 40 cases. Using the daily R values from January 21 to 23, 2020 as proxies of non-intervened transmission intensity, we find, under a linear regression framework for 1...
35 companies are in this moment on a race to find the vaccine againts COVID-19.
Making vaccines usually takes a decade or more between development, safety testing and manufacturing, so this race is not only against each other, is against time.
The most positive estimates talk about 12 to 18 months to have a vaccine for this SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus.
An American team in Seattle started a Phase 1 trial to test their mRNA-1273.Find out more: https://www.nih.gov/...
