Are we closer to a vaccine against the novel coronavirus than previously thought? With scientists worldwide racing to develop a vaccine for broad distribution, Dr. Vincent Silenzio, a professor and expert in urban and global public health at Rutgers University, discusses some significant advances with Briana Vannozzi of NJTV News.
He explains the latest developments in a vaccine from the University of Oxford and pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca that’s showing promising results in human testing. It has received an endorsement from the World Health Organization, which calls it the most advanced vaccine candidate.
