 A new coronavirus sample was successfully developed by an Australian Research Institute


According to the report, after patients with initial symptoms of new coronavirus are tested in the hospital, their virus samples will be sent to Peter duherty Institute, which is the only laboratory in Australia that can carry out secondary tests on virus samples and provide accurate test results. On January 22, scientists at the Institute successfully bred a new type of coronavirus from a sample of an infected patient.

Mike Caton, deputy director of the Institute, said it was a crucial finding and would be the key to testing the effectiveness of the vaccine.

As a pathologist, Mike Caton said that Australia has perfect medical equipment to deal with such virus outbreaks. Although its dangerous, its not as deadly as Ebola, after which the death rate of the virus may be reduced. In addition, the findings could help researchers develop new tests or detect whether patients are infected with the virus before they develop any symptoms. Up to now, 5 new coronavirus infections have been confirmed in Australia, including 4 in New South Wales and 1 in Victoria. Brendan Murphy, Australias chief health officer, said there was no need for the Australian public to wear masks to go out. At present, there is no human to human transmission in Australia, and infected patients have been isolated.
