A study by Johnson & Johnson shows work on a vaccine, which has been tested on monkeys, creates a strong immune response that protects against infection after a single dose. Medical personnel and teachers will be the first to receive immunization, he said.

On the global front, Dr Anthony Fauci said that 250,000 people have registered on the National Institute of Heath's website to take part in experimental vaccine trials.

"We look forward to the results of the clinical trials that will determine the safety and immunogenicity, and ultimately the efficacy, of the Ad26.COV2.S vaccine in humans", the authors wrote.

Russian Health Minister Mikhail Murashko also said Gamaleya Institute of Epidemiology and Microbiology, a state research facility in Moscow, had completed clinical trials of the vaccine and paperwork is being prepared to register it.

"We have started human clinical trials of Bharat Biotech's vaccine and soon the trial of Zydus Cadila vaccine will be started", Chaturvedi added.

Russian Federation is developing two vaccines to help cure the coronavirus, with clinical studies on more than 1,600 people planned before it enters large scale production.

Johnson & Johnson on Thursday kicked off USA human safety trials for its COVID-19 vaccine after releasing details of a study in monkeys that showed its best-performing vaccine candidate offered strong protection in a single dose.

Moreover, neutralizing antibody responses correlated with protection, suggesting that this biomarker will be useful in the clinical development of COVID-19 vaccines for use in humans.

"We know that, if successful, this vaccine can be rapidly developed, produced on a large scale and delivered around the world".
