Oxford ’s COVID-19 Vaccine Candidate Takes a Big Leap Forward, Showing Success in Early Trials

But a leader seemed to emerge today with research published in the Lancet reporting promising results in a robust study by investigators at Oxford University in England. The study began in April, with a sample group of 1,077 adults aged 18 to 55—an age group young enough to tolerate exposure to SARS-CoV2, the virus that causes COVID-19, with less risk of adverse effects than would be seen in older, more vulnerable a...

Africa: The SDGs, COVID-19 and the Global South - Insights From the Sustainable Development Report 2020
[IPS] Paris/New York -- COVID-19 has claimed more than 550,000 lives and disrupted the entire world, sparing no region. As of July 2020, the number of daily new confirmed cases and deaths due to COVID-19 are growing rapidly in Latin America and the Caribbean, especially in Brazil and Mexico but also in many African countries as well as India.
