Hoping to front the worldwide race for a covid-19 vaccine, the Biological Institute in Ness Ziona reported positive tests  of the anti-covid-19 vaccine developed at its labs on animals. The director, Prof. Shmuel Shapira, told defense minister Benny Gantz who visited the institute on Thursday, that the search for the vaccine launched six months ago, with the support of defense ministry officials, now awaits regulation procedures. He hoped safe and effective experiments on humans could begin in mid-October and the vaccine would be available during the coming winter.
