      (The Hill) The coronavirus pandemic has set off an unprecedented global scramble for a vaccine.

      There are more than 100 potential vaccine candidates, according to the World Health Organization, but only eight have entered the crucial clinical trials stage. Four are in the United States and Europe, with the rest in China.

      “I can never remember anything like this,” Walter Orenstein, associate director of the vaccine center at Emory University in Atlanta, said of the number of vaccines being developed to tackle one disease. “Hopefully, at least one and hopefully more than one will prove to be safe and effective.”

      None have yet gone through the full trials needed to show that they are safe and effective.

      Full story here. It discussed 4 different vaccines entering trial phases in some detail.

        Good science fiction, but still fiction, with a bunch of facts mixed in. In my humbly firm opinion.
