China begins to develop a vaccine against the new coronavirus



China has begun to develop a vaccine against the new coronavirus that at the moment has left at least 56 dead among the 1,975 infected diagnosed in the Asian country, local press reported today.

According to the state’s Diario del Pueblo, scientist Xu Wenbo, from the Center for Disease Prevention and Control, said the body was already developing a vaccine against the coronavirus “after successfully isolating the first strain of the virus.”

The news comes at a time when China is expanding prevention measures for the spread of the virus, such as the closure of access to the southeast town of Shantou, or the suspension of interprovincial bus services in Beijing, Tianjin, Xian and in Shandong province.
