Iran begins human testing of its national coronavirus vaccine


#Iran has started human trials of its national coronavirus vaccine, the #Tasnim agency announced on #Tuesday. The drug was developed by the #Shifa #Pharmed company, which is part of the state-owned conglomerate #Setad.

60,000 #Iranian citizens volunteered to fill a quota of 56 participants in the tests. The first person to take the drug was the daughter of the #Setad chief, #Reuters details. #It is expected that in six months the production of the vaccine could reach 12 million doses per month and, after satisfying domestic demand, the country could begin to export it.
