“The results of the first trial phase showed that it is safe and the results of the second phase on a group of people aged 18 to 75 years old showed that the blood serum of the vaccinated people has 93.5 percent ability to neutralize the coronavirus,” said Hassan Jalili, the director of the COVIran Barekat Project.
This scientist also announced that the complete documentation on the COVIran Barekat vaccine will be sent to the World Health Organization (WHO) when the researchers obtain the data from the third phase of clinical trials.
This Persian vaccine has already been requested by 12 countries in Asia, South America, and Europe. So far, the COVIran Barekat has even shown efficiency in the fight against the British strain.
