Israeli researchers at MIGAL – Galilee Research Institute – claim they have developed a vaccine against Coronavirus Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV) for poultry.
The DNA of coronavirus in birds has a very similar genetic structure to the virus in humans that had spread from China. The researchers said the treatment developed for birds could be applicable to humans.
After four years of multi-disciplinary in the fields of biotechnology, environmental and agriculture, the research team say they are only three months away from testing a vaccine for Coronavirus (COVID-19) on humans. Clinical trials at Israel’s Volcani Agricultural Research Institute had confirmed the treatment’s viability.
