Evidence mounts that TB vaccine might help protect against Covid-19

A tuberculosis vaccine may help reduce the risk of death from Covid-19, researchers suggest.
Developing countries have lower-than-expected Covid-19 death rates, and a TB vaccine given in countries with high rates of tuberculosis might play a significant role in reducing Covid-19 death rates, according to authors of a new study. The vaccine, which is routinely given to children in countries where TB infection is common, is called Bacille Calmette-Guérin, or BCG for short. It is not widely used in the United States.-News24
