Researchers are developing a vaccine that treats “Corona” and influenza together

It is given through the nose, not as an injection

Hong Kong researchers have developed a vaccine, the first of its kind. It can protect against the emerging corona virus and influenza together, according to what Al-Hurra reported today, Saturday.

Yuen Kwok Young, head of the infectious diseases department in the Department of Microbiology at the University of Hong Kong, indicated that experiments showed that the vaccine works well in animals.

The vaccine uses a weakened influenza virus that only grows in the upper airway and cannot reproduce, and it has been genetically engineered to include the Corona virus protein as well.

The vaccine will trigger an immune response and the production of antibodies that will prevent the real virus from spreading in the body. It will also stimulate the immune system to respond to the influenza virus that was used in the vaccine, but other types of influenza viruses may still be contagious.

The prospective vaccine is scheduled to enter the first phase trials in Hong Kong next November, and it will be given to volunteers through the nose, and not through the body injection, as is the case with most vaccines.
