2:03 pm
follow over time we can't know until we actually have the data but we're optimistic based on areas that is that we will see a good direction mujhe deep for several years at least and probably better than nationally quite immunity. british prime minister abbas johnson says he cannot promise that there will be a vaccine by the end of this year. some hopeful i think is crossed but to say that i'm 100 percent confident that we'll get a vaccine this year or indeed next year is a last just you know an exaggeration we're not there yet paul brennan has been following those trials and access him explains why many are pinning their hopes on this one. we know that the university of oxford trials with astra zeneca prepared to actually do the manufacturing and we know that they have progressed now to phase 3 so large scale testing what we're waiting for is the publication in the medical journal the lancet of the results from phase one that's back in april where they
2:04 pm
started with just 500 volunteers so what we know is that the there are no major side effects otherwise they couldn't have gone to phase 3 but we don't know is the detailed data of what they found out during that phase one stage indications are over the past few days sources and reports indicate that the oxford university general institute vaccine program appears to be producing a double impact in the volunteers both an antibody response antibodies are y. shaped proteins which attach to the virus and essentially lock it in prevent it from infecting human cells or and also a t. cell response as well now 70 cells are regarded as killer cells and they go after the virus and actually eliminate and kill the virus so for a program to be developing and having to double the response that oxford university appears to be getting that's very positive but what we don't know yet is the deal is the data and that's why the publication in the lancet at some point today we
2:05 pm
don't know a time yet at some point today is being so keenly anticipated because it will have a huge impact. for research all around the world. it was their 1st face to face meeting in brussels since the coronavirus pandemic began and talks between european union leaders were planned for just 2 days but now they're heading into a 4th day set to resume in the coming hours after an all eyes session ended without an agreement at stake and unprecedented $2.00 trillion dollar budget that includes $857000000000.00 for the post coronavirus economic recovery for the hardest hit nations this is where the disagreements lie the e.u.'s 4 biggest economies france germany italy and spain are on the side which favors most of the money being paid out as grants on the other side it's being led by the so-called food for us the netherlands austria denmark and sweden who want smaller grants and bigger loads
2:06 pm
