A full race in the midst of uncertainty:
Is there a date for the vaccine anti Covid 19?
The coronavirus, to day, is still an unknown virus against which the whole world continues to fight, specifically 213 countries, almost all of the planet.
Almost a year after this shot to the population health, Covid-19 has infected 27.3 million people, of which 900,000 were unable to defeat the disease.
That is why finding the vaccine to eradicate this disease has become the main task, but how much time is left for it to see the light and end this kidding pandemy once and for all?
Finding the vaccine: a countdown
After contemplating the shutdown what this virus is causing in the population, the laboratories around the world began a harsh and competitive race to find a vaccine to stop the virus, because, even if it is not the only way to stop it, it will be the most effective.
Without a doubt, never before has science acted so fast, with so many resources and in such a coordinated way to eradicate the same problem.
Numerous projects are under way
Specifically 160, of which 23 are already in an advanced stage like Oxford University and AstraZeneca. Among these 23 most advanced projects, there are 6 studies in phase 3 of the research, a phase in which vaccines are tested on a large scale.
What is clear is that, although the process is accelerating to the maximum, there are phases that cannot be faster, such as waiting to see how the organism reacts after the vaccine is given, a situation that requires months of tests.
But how long does it take to get a vaccine out effective?
Under normal circumstances, developing a vaccine usually takes up to 10 years, but with the rate at which research on the coronavirus is advancing, the most positive estimates estimate that the vaccine could be within 1 year.
The situation in Spain is optimistic
The president of the country, Pedro Sánchez, has announced that it is expected that Spain will begin to supply the vaccine anti Covid-19 on December 2020, a vaccine that will land in three Spanish hospitals, where tests will be coordinated in 190 volunteers.
The Madrid hospitals of La Paz and La Princesa and the Marqués de Valdecilla University Hospital in Santander have been the pioneers in recruiting patients for this trial.
The Health Minister has affirmed that, if the clinical analysis overcome the necessary guarantees, our country could count in the month of December with three million doses from the 30 million doses which European Union will count.
And who will get the vaccine first?
This is something that is clear, and that is that according to Europe and common sense, the vaccine will be received first by people who have a higher risk of catching Covid-19.
Who are these people? The most vulnerable and most exposed groups, such as health workers, adults over 65 or all those who need to be immunized before due to any pathology or disease that poses a risk to health.
Setbacks can arise
And it is that with this countdown, the risky measures are being taken, such as starting the clinical phase in humans before ending the phase in animals or starting to produce the vaccine in a before you even know if it will succeed.
Fear, uncertainty and anxiety can cope with this situation, but we must not forget that the vaccine must be successful, and not only effective, but also must be produced on a large scale and in the shortest time possible.
So in the meantime ...
Responsibility and more responsibility, because while the efficacy of vaccines and their safety are being rigorously reviewed and evaluated, the obligatory prevention measures must be continued: social distancing and a lot of hygiene with surgery mask use and hydroalcoholic gels provided by RH Amenities.
When the good news comes that the vaccine is here, all this will pass and will remain as a bitter memory. Alltogether we will overcome.
