TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — A group of researchers from the National Chung Hsing University (NCHU) has proposed an alternative method for developing a Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine to prevent the virus from mutating.

The team, led by NCHU Institute of Genomics and Bioinformatics Director Hou Ming-Hon (侯明宏), has conducted research with George Mason University, hoping to uncover the mysteries behind the coronavirus' ability to create variations of itself in such a short time. Their findings were published by the Journal of Medicinal Chemistry in its March issue, according to UDN.
