Currently, more than 200 coronavirus vaccines are being developed worldwide, and six of them are already undergoing clinical trials.
This was stated by the Director-General of the world health organization Tedros Adanom Gebreisus at the forum on security in the American city of aspen.
вЂњWe have more than 200 candidate vaccines, and six of them are at a very good stage, undergoing clinical trials,вЂќ he said.
The WHO Director-General spoke in favor of making the future coronavirus vaccine available to the world's population, emphasizing that the coronavirus vaccine should be considered a вЂњpublic goodвЂќ. He explained, however, that вЂњa global consensus is required that any vaccine should be regarded as a global public productвЂќ. According to him, the economic recovery in the world after the pandemic could go faster if the vaccine is available to everyone.
Currently, вЂњthere is hopeвЂќ that it will be possible to get an effective vaccine, but вЂњwithout the results of clinical trials, we can not say that we have a vaccine,вЂќ the head of the WHO concluded.
