Cuba is one of the most advanced countries when it comes to medicine, although not so popular in the western world.
However, Cuba is preparing for clinical trials for the new coronavirus vaccine, and a lot of Latin American countries are placing their bets on it.
They are talking about a potential vaccine for the novel virus, and it’s still early to say if the trials are going to be successful.
The name of the vaccine is “Sovereignty 01”, and the trials will start next week, including 676 people of ages between 19 and 80.
According to the report from Prensa Latina, a state-run medium, the trials will start on August 24 and will end on January 11, 2021.
The official results of the potential vaccine testing will be released in February 2021.
The Cuban researchers who are developing the vaccine have the full support of the Cuban president Miguel Díaz-Canel, and all the work is done by Finlay Institute in Havana.
The entire world is depending on whoever creates the first secure coronavirus vaccine and knowing the history of this country’s medical achievements, the solution might hide on the island.
Since the beginning of the pandemic, Cuba had 88 deaths and 3,408 infected people.
