Coronavirus has already spread to dozens of countries. Could take 18 months for a vaccine to be ready.
SINDHI NEWS – China’s Coronavirus death tally increased on Wednesday, as the chief of the World Health Organisation urged countries to work together against the “grave threat” posed by the outbreak.
The World Health Organization (WHO) has said a vaccine for the coronavirus could be ready in 18 months, as the UN health body announced that the official name for the virus would be COVID-19.
While speaking at conference held in Geneva on combating the virus, WHO boss Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said viruses could have “more powerful consequences than any terrorist action”. The virus has spread to dozens of countries around the globe. Although 99 percent of the infections are in China, where it remains “very much an emergency”, it also “holds a very grave threat for the rest of the world”, Tedros said at the conference.
