Los Angeles, Sep 8 (PTI) Scientists have used key ingredients from plant and bacterial viruses to develop new anti-Covid-19 vaccines that do not need to be refrigerated. American Chemical Society The fridge-free vaccines, described Tuesday in the journal U.S., have been effective in eliciting antibodies against the SARS-CoV-2 virus in mice. SARS-CoV-2 is the cause of COVID disease. According to researchers, if they prove to be safe and effective in people, it could lead to a massive change in the distribution of vaccines globally, especially in rural areas or the poor.

Professor Nicole Steinmetz at the University of California San Diego in the US said that the special thing about this vaccine technology is that it is stable in terms of temperature, so it can be easily transported to places where there is a very low temperature freezer. Impossible.

Researchers have developed two COVID vaccines, one made from a plant virus while the other from a bacterial virus.
