COVID-19: European Commission reveals when Coronavirus vaccine could be ready
European Commission President, Ursula von der Leyen has revealed that a vaccine against Coronavirus (COVID-19) could be ready by the end of this year.
According to Ursula von der Leyen, two of the most promising research teams are based in Europe.
She told the German Sunday newspaper, Bild am Sonntag that, “I hope they develop a vaccine towards the end of the year.” She also noted that there are plans to start clinical tests soon and the EU was already talking to manufacturers about global production capacities.
Ursula also added that she believes that schools and daycare centres could re-open earlier, “Children and adolescents will have more freedom of movement sooner than old people and people with previous illnesses.”
