Walter Reed National Military Medical Center is developing a pan-coronavirus vaccine that is in the early stages of human trials. However, Army scientists warn COVID-19 may not be the big one.

  • Dr. Kayvon Modjarrad, director of the Emerging Infectious Diseases Branch at the Walter Reed Army Institute of Research, said he and his colleagues are preparing for the threat of viruses with higher mortality rates than COVID-19, similar to SARS or MERS.
  • Modjarrad said Army vaccine scientists are working to develop vaccines, diagnostics and treatments that cover broad families of viruses and to anticipate emerging viral threats.
  • Modjarrad said the tools, technology and knowledge base for these efforts exist, so what’s necessary is investment and focus.
