Atlanta, USA (CNN) – The World Health Organization (WHO) said that 124 potential vaccines against emerging coronavirus (Covid 19) are still under development around the world, according to WHO documents posted on its website.

According to the organization, 10 of these vaccines are undergoing clinical trials, including those in all of the United States and China, where clinical trials have seen a rise, to 10 from 8 on May 15.

And 114 coronavirus vaccines worldwide are still in the pre-clinical assessment, including vaccines for the University of Tokyo, Tulane University, University of Alberta, and University of Pittsburgh, to see their numbers rise, from 110 vaccines on May 15 , According to the World Health Organization.

The British University of Oxford announced, in a statement, that it will start the second and third stages of human experiments for the new Corona virus (Covid 19) vaccine, after the first stage witnessed more than 1000 vaccinations.

More than 10,000 adults and children will participate in the following study, and the second stage will extend the age group of people who are tested for vaccination to include a small number of the elderly and children. The third stage will assess how the vaccine works in a large number of people over the age of 18.

The head of the Oxford vaccine group, Professor Andrew Pollard, said the studies “are going very well”. He added that the new studies “will assess the ability of the vaccine to stimulate immune responses in the elderly, and test whether it can provide protection in the general population.”
