Coronavirus was first reported in China's Wuhan and since then has been spreading across the world, affecting millions. So far, scientists and researchers have failed to find a vaccine for the novel infection. However, the Oxford on Monday said that it has developed a coronavirus vaccine which is "safe, well-tolerated and immunogenic".

According to researchers at Oxford, the vaccine, ChAdOx1 nCoV-19, was tested on 1077 people in phase I and II of the human trials and none of the volunteers faced any serious effects due to it. 

"The phase 1/2 Oxford COVID-19 vaccine trial is now published. The vaccine is safe, well-tolerated, and immunogenic. Congratulations to Pedro Folegatti and colleagues. These results are extremely encouraging," said Richard Horton, Editor in Chief of UK based medical Journal 'The Lancet' that published the results.
