J&J starts human safety trial for its COVID-19 vaccine candidate

- Johnson & Johnson on Thursday kicked off U.S. 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.

The drugmaker said it had started early-stage human trials in the United States and Belgium and would test its vaccine candidate in more than 1,000 healthy adults aged 18 to 55 years, as well as adults aged 65 years and older. "The Johnson & Johnson vaccine is exciting because it's a single dose," White House Coronavirus Task Force Coordinator Deborah Birx said in an interview with Fox News.

In the monkey study, scientists from J&J and Harvard's Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center studied seven different potential vaccines in 32 animals and compared the results to 20 control animals who got placebo shots.

U.S. COVID-19 outbreak picks up in Midwest as summer travel spreads virusCoronavirus infections appear to be picking up in the U.S. Midwest, the coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force said on Thursday, as Ohio reported a record day of cases and Wisconsin's governor mandated the use of masks. We were told that coronavirus would go away in the summer, and many of us pointed out that COVID-19 was out of control in Brazil. Hot weather doesn’t stop the pandemic. Wear a mask! Practice distancing! I expect Trump to soon accuse blue states of sending their COVID-positive residents to red states to spread the infection there as a way of undermining his reelection chances.
