Any hope for CoronaVirus COVID-19 Vaccine?
Nowadays, the treatment of COVID-19 recommended by WHO is symptomatic and supportive. This means that there is no cure or vaccine for COVID-19 nowadays. All that doctors can do is keep an eye on the patents` condition ease the symptoms.
Pharmaceutical companies struggling:
About 35 pharmaceutical companies from all over the world are working on the Vaccine at the moment. The race is real. The country that will complete clinical trials first will write its name in history. It will also gain a vast and economic influence all over the world.
That is why, before the invention of the vaccine. COVID-19 vaccine causes a lot of concern.
Concerns and side effects of Covid-19 vaccine:
At this time, it is impossible to speculate on the safety and possible side effects of the Vaccine. The testing phase has just started. To make any serious statements, pharmaceutical companies will have to conduct tests and observations for about 2-4 years under the WHO protocol.
Vaccine for every disease is a certain amount of weakened virus particles. That is being injected into the body.
This is supposed to teach the patient`s immune system to recognize and fight the new virus.
Generally, this is a sample of the virus. It may cause side effects that are similar to the symptoms of the disease caused by it. In the case of COVID-19, those are fever, headache, and flu-like symptoms and possible redness on the injection site. Still, doctors claim that the total effect of coronavirus on the human body is not utterly studied yet.
Some patients have shown untypical epileptical symptoms. So there is a substantial concern that, in some cases, the virus may influence the brain cells. This leads to reasoning that the safety of the Vaccine is more important than its efficiency.
The virus and the possible effect on the human body of the disease caused by it should be studied utterly. Only after it, the general vaccination should start.
