Calling for Rapid Development of a Safe and Effective MERS Vaccine
Drs. Peter Hotez and Maria Elena Bottazzi of the Sabin Vaccine Institute call for the rapid development of a safe and effective MERS vaccine.
"The geographic spread and rapid increase in the cases of Middle East respiratory syndrome (MERS) caused by a novel coronavirus (MERS-CoV) during the past two months have raised concern about its pandemic potential. Here we call for the rapid development of an effective and safe MERS vaccine to control the spread of MERS-CoV."
