The World Health Organisation’s Special Envoy on Covid-19 Dr David Nabarro has said that it could be two and a half years until a Covid-19 vaccine becomes widely available.

Nabarro stated, “I think that a proven vaccine is still going to take us some months and we won’t have one until next year.”

“But then the real issue is how do you build up the manufacturing capacity so that everyone in the world can have it, and for that I think it’s two-and-a-half years,” he continued.

There are several vaccines in trial stages in the UK, China and the US at the moment and a lot of hope is placed on them.
