WHO estimates cost of coronavirus vaccine

200 potentially effective vaccines are being developed or tested in the world

To effectively combat the disease, you need an effective vaccine on an unprecedented scale and in a short time.

More than $ 31 billion will be needed to develop an effective and affordable COVID-19 vaccine over the next year, the World Health Organization (WHO) and global partners said, according to the UN website.

“Over the next 12 months, more than $ 31 billion will be needed to develop drugs that will be effective against COVID-19,” the report said.

According to the Director General of the World Health Organization, Tedros Gebreyesus, 200 potentially effective vaccines are being developed or tested in the world.

He emphasized that effective response to the disease requires an effective vaccine on an unprecedented scale and in a short time. At the same time, it should be accessible to all who need it.

Sumy Swaminathan, WHO chief researcher, said that it usually takes up to 10 years to develop and produce an effective vaccine, but under current conditions, WHO devotes 12, a maximum of 18 months.
