Abstract

Currently as of May 2020, there are more than 8 potential candidate vaccines against COVID19 in clinical evaluation and another 100 in preclinical evaluation. Considering the governing rules and regulations with respect to non-clinical and clinical evaluations, it may take around 5-6 months at the earliest to have an efficacious COVID 19 vaccine. The question lies ‘DO WE HAVE THAT MUCH TIME?’ The challenges faced today not only have implications to the public health but also the masked social and economic implications as well. Hence, it is imperative to have a Blitz Krieg solution against COVID19.
