SEVERAL health organisations in Thailand and other countries have sped up operations to find a way to deal with the Covid-19 contagion, with up to 70 candidate vaccines being developed by companies registered with the World Health Organisation (WHO).

Vitoon Vonghangool, president of Thailand’s BioNet-Asia, said if the vaccine currently being tested on rats proves to be effective, tests on humans will be held before it is put in for registration with the Food and Drug Administration.

“This operation will be under the supervision of the Public Health Ministry, though the progress will also be reported to WHO,” he said. — The Nation/ANN
