This could change everything…
Apparently a medicine company based out of Texas is now ready to begin testing on a Coronavirus vaccine that will potentially stop the deadly virus in its tracks.
According to Fox News, a Houston-based firm known as Greffex claims that it has developed a vaccine that is ready to move to the first phase of testing as required by the government.
The company says it could have a working vaccine available to the public as soon as the end of this year.
Ready To Test
The CEO of Greffex even joined a Fox News program “America’s Newsroom” to discuss the major breakthrough his company has made.
“We’re confident in the vaccine, the quality of the vaccine, completely. The end result will be what the government wants to do in terms of testing.”
Apparently, the vaccine was also used to combat Middle Eastern Respiratory Syndrome (MERS):
“The disease we’re working with now, COVID-19, has a tremendous number of similarities between this and MERS. So what we were able to do is take the knowledge.”
Price also said that the new virus is closely related to Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS), adding that, because all viruses “morph” over time, it is necessary to develop new and updated vaccines regularly.
We Might Beat This
The fact that a company was able to develop a vaccine for this deadly virus so quickly gives us hope. It means that we have a fighting chance.
After all, the virus has only been active these past few weeks. So the fact that they were able to have something created so quickly is good news for us.
Price even said that his company can really do whatever it wants:
“Yesterday was the first time I heard people say it’s a pandemic. If it’s truly a pandemic, then you can pretty much do whatever you want,” Price said. “The process is roughly four weeks for the first animal testing and then you go into human trials. And that’s the part that will be determined by the government.”
