Using Technology To Develop Possible COVID-19 Cure

Research into a possible COVID Vaccine has a local connection, with a leading research professor working from his home in the Mudgee Region to develop a solution.

Professor Patrick Brennan, from the University of Sydney, has been collaborating with a team of medical researchers, using current cancer detecting technology and adapting it for COVID.

Within five weeks the team was able to develop a technology that could detect corona cases using CT scans.

Professor Brennan says the decision to develop a cure has been in the works for some months now, but believes we shouldn’t just rely on medical help and that it’s up to us.

"Very recently we sat down in the lab, about three-and-a-half months ago, and decided if we could adapt some of our technology for COVID".

He also says that we must be patient as the vaccine cannot be developed over night and it will take some time.

"The reality is that we all have to play it safe, and we cannot expect outside organisations to look after us. We have to take care of ourselves".
