More than 20 COVID-19 vaccine candidates are currently under development, and the World Health Organization (WHO) says it will work to promote the widespread use of new drugs once the new drugs are approved,media BGR reported. Some of these potential treatments have been tested in stage 1 humans, and some may be ready for emergency use as soon as this fall. But it can take up to 18 months to prepare the general population.
Vaccinating as many people as possible with a drug designed to provide immunity to a terrible disease may seem like a no-brainer. But there may still be some opposition to this life-saving treatment. Some anti-vaccine campaigners have even claimed in the past few weeks that the epidemic is not real.
Researchers in Australia are looking at the effects of a 100-year-old COVID-19 vaccine, according to a report from Australia. The drug, which injects more than 130 million people a year to prevent TB, may boost patients’ immunity and their response to the new coronavirus. The Caerinth vaccine is not a COVID-19 vaccine in itself, but there are theories that it can help medical personnel fight TB. In the Australian study, it was the health care workers who were vaccinated.
But other countries already have mandatory vaccination programs, including cacao, and that’s what’s going to be interesting. Euronews discovered a new study earlier this week that explored the correlation between universal card-based vaccination policies and reduced COVID-19 incidence.
One of the most significant differences is the Iberian Peninsula, where Spain and Portugal are located. By the time of publication, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Spain had exceeded 148,000, while the number of confirmed cases in Portugal was more than 13,100. When it comes to deaths, the number of deaths in Spain is as high as 14,792, compared with 380 in Portugal, a surprising difference. The Ka-Miao policy is a possible explanation.
“We found that countries that did not have a policy of universal access to card-mediated seedlings (Italy, the Netherlands, the United States) were more affected than those that had long-term policy of universal access to card-mediated seedlings. The study reads.
“There are reports that cacao vaccination can have a wide range of protective effects against respiratory infections,” study author Gonzalo Otazu said on Twitter. “So we looked at the data: countries that have never had universal vaccinations, have been hit hard by COVID-19, and the death toll is high. “
Italy has never had a universal TB vaccination policy. At present, there are more than 139,000 new crown confirmed cases in Italy, with 17,669 deaths. Japan has a universal card-miao vaccine program. Of the more than 4,250 cases in the region, only 93 have died. Japan has also not implemented strict social segregation measures.
The researchers also found that Iran, which began compulsory vaccination in 1984, has a higher death toll than Japan (nearly 4,000 of the more than 64,500 confirmed cases). The latter began to vaccinate residents against tuberculosis in 1947. The conclusion seems to be that early vaccination card seeding sedits more protection for older people who are now exposed to COVID-19.
“The higher mortality rates in countries with a late-started policy of card-based seedlings (Iran, 1984) are consistent with the idea of cacao-based seedlings protecting the inoculated elderly population,” the study authors wrote. “We also found that vaccination card-mediated seedlings also reduced the number of COVID-19 cases reported in one country. “
The same difference can be seen in Europe, where there are mandatory card-to-seed vaccination programmes in some countries. As a result, the number of cases in these areas is lower than in other countries. Germany is the best example. Of course, these are early studies, but there does not appear to be a link between vaccines for the new coronavirus and COVID-19 mortality.
The study was published in a preprinted version of medRxiv.
