Vaccine, Medicine, and Alternative Medicine Trademarks
The first of these Corona trademark applications came from Moderna, Inc., a Massachusetts-based biotechnology company. Moderna applied for the marks “WUHAN CORONA VAX” and “WUHAN CORONA MVAX“. Moderna plans to use these marks for vaccines and treatment of infectious diseases. Currently, the company is working on a vaccine called mRNA-1273 that could potentially be a cure for Coronavirus.
In addition to vaccines, companies are applying to trademark more common medical products. For example, Quality Innovations, Inc. has a live trademark application for “CORONAVIRUSRX“, intended for use on respirators for artificial respiration and fever thermometers.
Also, Hero Scientific, Ltd. applied for the mark, “TELECORONA” for use in telemedicine and medical communication services. The Hero Science Foundation is a non-profit organization that funds biomedical research.
Alternative medicine providers are applying for Corona-related marks as well. There is currently a live trademark application for, “TREATMENT OF CORONAVIRUS WITH ENHANCE OF IMMUNE SYSTEM BY AUTO-HEMOTHERAPY AND CUPPING.” This came from an individual, and would be used for the medical treatment of a virus.
