CSIRO's Professor SS Vasan is leading a team of scientists studying dangerous pathogens. They successfully regenerated the Coronavirus outside China and have mass-produced in large numbers, enough to start their clinical trial.

Australia-based Doherty Institute reported that they successfully isolated the sample of Coronavirus from an infected patient in Australia but to get a vaccine more quickly, what Professor SS Vasan and his team have achieved will help better.

He was a student of IISC Bengaluru and BITS Pilani. He then got a Rhodes scholarship and moved to study at Triniti College, Oxford. He took part in the project to develop newer vaccines for chikungunya, zika and dengue virus.

While some other teams in Australia and around the world are trying to find out a cure for the pandemic, Prof SS Vasan, the principal investigator of the clinical pre-response project of CSIRO, and his team is leading the way.

Wuhan Virus is one of four types of coronavirus, a large group of viruses. Coronavirus often comes from animals. The Wuhan Virus has been located to originate from Huanan, a seafood market in Wuhan, but scientists found that this virus was similar to those found in snakes and bats.

Humans get infected by contacting one another; therefore, to be safe from the virus, always try to keep yourself, your living and working place clean. BMC (Brihanmumbai Mahanagar Palika) has drawn up guidelines (which is similar to the recommendation of WHO) for people to minimize the risk of getting infected.
