FED: Coronavirus vaccine a long way off

Sunday, February 23, 2020.

Australia's chief medical officer has warned there is no realistic prospect of a vaccine to the deadly coronavirus anytime soon.

As a group of Australians were released from 14 days in quarantine on a Darwin camp after being evacuated from China's Hubei province, Chief Medical Officer Brendan Murphy said a vaccine to COVID-19 is still "a long, long way away":

"We're hopeful that progress will be made but there is no realistic prospect of a vaccine in the short-term," Professor Murphy told reporters in Melbourne on Sunday.

Even so, 266 people have left the Howard Springs quarantine camp on Sunday, after they were evacuated earlier this month from the epicentre of the coronavirus at Wuhan, the capital of China's Hubei province.
