Expert says children may be able to spread coronavirus like they spread the common cold

Children may be able to spread Covid-19 just as easily as they spread another type of coronavirus — the common cold, said William Haseltine, a former professor at Harvard Medical School. According to Haseltine, there’s every reason to suspect that this virus, even though it can kill, behaves pretty much like a cold virus, in terms of transmission. He also mentioned that it’s true of almost all respiratory diseases, including the colds that are caused by coronaviruses as they even use the same receptor in the nasal passages as one of the cold viruses. Haseltine warned that children can be infected and infect others, so they should wear masks. He said that children up to 5 years old can be “highly infectious to other people.” CNN

Drug Company eyes 500-600 million doses of vaccine by 2021

The US-listed drug company, Novavax Inc, said that its manufacturing capacity is sufficient to meet the US demand for COVID-19 vaccines in 2021, according to reports. Executives of the company said that demand of vaccines could be as high as 500 million to 600 million doses. Last week, Novavax said that its experimental COVID-19 vaccine produced high levels of antibodies against COVID, according to initial data from a small, early-stage clinical trial. Novavax expects to be able to produce well over 2 billion doses of its vaccine annually overall, the executives told reporters. Aljazeera
