Report has it that the covid19 vaccine, developed by the University of Oxford, UK will offer double protection against corona virus.
It can be recalled that the Oxford University, UK recently notified the public of its discovery of a vaccine, for prevention of corona virus; which was to be launched soon.
This report published by The Telegraph via its official twitter handle says the breakthrough was made during human trials, when the researchers discovered during the trial process that their vaccine could boost an immune response, providing a double defence against the virus.
They said the full details of the first phase of the clinical trial data will be released on Monday.
According to the researchers, blood samples were taken from a group of volunteers in UK. The volunteers were given a dose of the vaccine, which showed that it stimulate the body to produce both antibiotics and killer T_cells.
They assured that the discovery is promising, because separate studies have suggested that antibiotics may fade away within months, while T_cells can stay in circulation for years.
