14 Apr How medical translation can help during COVID-19
Covid-19 (Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2) is a virus that first appeared in China in 2019. The virus belongs to the family of coronaviruses which mainly affect certain mammals or birds and normally only cause mild colds in humans. However, viruses can change (mutate) and adapt to new circumstances. Experts try to predict mutations in the normal flu viruses and begin to develop vaccines before the new flu season that protect against the most likely changes. So how can medical translation help during this pandemic?
There is currently no Covid-19 vaccine on the market, but work is being done worldwide as quickly as possible to find one. This work is mainly taking place in Europe where some 1.7 billion vaccines are manufactured each year and, in general, where 16% of revenue goes directly to research across the continent.
