In a major breakthrough in the global fight against coronavirus, scientists in Australia have developed a lab-grown version of the disease.

Key points:

  • Australian scientists have become the world’s first outside of China to copy the coronavirus
  • The discovery will enable scientists to develop a test to identify people who might be infected, even before they show any symptoms
  • It will also help speed up work towards a vaccine for the disease, which has claimed more than 100 lives in China and infected six Australians
