Is there a vaccine for coronavirus?

At present (26/2/2020) there is no vaccine available for the coronavirus (COVID-19) however, a number of different organizations are racing against the clock to create one.

It’s reported that the National Institutes of Health, as well as other private companies including Inovio, Novavax, Johnson and Johnson and Moderna, are all working towards a vaccine. Even if a breakthrough “cure” was found it would be months, if not years before clinical trials were completed, allowing for “safe” use in humans.

China’s richest man, Jack Ma, has donated 100 million yuan (£11 million) through his foundation to help combat coronavirus (COVID-19).
