The Israeli Defense Ministry announced that it will soon test its own vaccine against coronavirus. This was reported on the department's Facebook page.
Human trials of the drug will begin on November 1. It is noted that the Israel Institute for Biological Research has already received all the necessary approvals from the Ministry of Health and the Helsinki Committee.
In May, Israeli Defense Minister Naftali Bennett announced a breakthrough in the creation of a cure for the coronavirus. Israeli scientists have identified antibodies that actively attack COVID-19 in the body of an infected person and can be used in the development of a drug. In the long term, the country was going to establish commercial production of the drug.
