Indonesia is working to design its own vaccine only against the emerging coronavirus, because it is concerned that it may be difficult for developing countries to obtain it from other countries, the Jakarta Post said.
The newspaper quoted the head of the development team at the Ministry of Research and Technology Ali Jafron Mukti: “As we know, the productive capacities of biotechnology companies in the world remain limited, and we also know that there are problems in the field of global supply and transport channels.”
He pointed out that his country should design a special vaccine “in Indonesia to be used in Indonesia.”
According to the optimistic scenario, the development of the Indonesian vaccine against the Coruna virus must be completed in the beginning of 2021, and testing may begin in the second half of that year.
