Iranian scientists, along with researchers from around the world, have been racing to develop safe and effective vaccines aimed at stopping the spread of the highly-infectious respiratory disease.

As many as a dozen teams of Iranian specialists have been working round-the-clock in the field while adhering to international standards and WHO guidelines, out of which four have reported promising results in tests on animals, Iranian Health Minister Saeed Namaki said late last month.

Namaki also said Iran hoped to start human trials of three vaccines in the coming weeks, and that it had already informed the United Nations’ health organ of its achievements.
