Scientists from across the globe are racing to develop effective vaccines and therapeutics for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). On March 16, phase 1 clinical trials started with a vaccine candidate developed by a US-based company, supported by the National Institutes of Health and the Coalition of Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI).
