Dutch coronavirus vaccine fast-tracked to test on humans

In Leiden, Jannsen Vaccines have been working hard since the start of the outbreak to develop a coronavirus vaccine. After a period of testing that has proven promising, the company is now ready to test the vaccines on 1,045 healthy people from Belgium and the United States.
