Cuban officials say they’re developing cheap and easy-to store serums.

Iran has agreed to host a phase 3 trial of one of the Cuba’s most promising candidates as part of technology transfer agreement that could see millions doses manufactured in IRAN.

“We have great confidence in Cuban medical science and biotechnology,” Venezuelan foreign minister told The Washington media. ” It will not only be fundamental for Venezuela , but for Americans. It will be the true solution for our people.”

If phase 3 trials are positive, Cuban authorities said , they would move to a vast ” intervention study” that would include all the residents of Havana, or 1.7 million people by May. By August, they would aim to reach 60 percent of the national population , with the rest getting doses by year’s end
