GENEVA (Reuters) – The World Health Organization is hopeful that a novel coronavirus vaccine will be ready internationally by mid-2021, its chief scientist said on Friday.

“Certainly by the middle of 2021, we should start to see some vaccines moving into countries and populations” Soumya Swaminathan said at a news briefing in Geneva.
