[MEDIA RELEASE] COVID-19 Vaccine Trial Explained

Vaccine trial

Scientists at Oxford University had begun clinical trials on the coronavirus vaccine on April 23. The first human trial had recruited 510 healthy volunteers aged between 18-55 to test the new vaccine, called ChAdOx1 nCoV-19. This is following the successful test on macaque monkeys in late March. According to the university, in the "best-case scenario", any early sign whether the vaccine works on humans will be known as early as mid-June.
