Egypt announces 3rd phase of clinical trials on 2 COVID-19 vaccines

Egypt’s Minister of Health Hala Zayed announced the beginning of the third phase of clinical trials on two vaccines for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

The trials, which are being run in cooperation with the Chinese government and the UAE’s G42 Healthcare Company, is part of an integrated package, including research on potential vaccines and manufacturing. “These experiments are called ‘For Humanity’, and are taking place in four Arab countries, namely Egypt, Bahrain, Jordan, and the UAE,” Minister Zayed said. “The experiments target 45,000 people worldwide, and they have been conducted on 35,000 people so far.”

Egypt is expected to participate in these trials by providing 6,000 volunteers. Participants will receive two doses of vaccination 21 days apart, following which they will be followed up for a full year.
