✔️ Researchers around the world are racing to find a vaccine for Covid-19. As of the end of August, there were 172 countries working on a coronavirus vaccine, according to the World Health Organization. More than 30 clinical trials are underway in humans.

"One is how effective is the vaccine? We don't know that yet. And a secondly, how durable is it? How long does it last? And then thirdly, how do we make enough doses for all the people who need it. The logistical issues of making a billion doses of anything new is quite extraordinary and it's something that the medical field has never had to deal with before," said Dr. Christopher Austin, director of the National Center for Translational Sciences (NCATS) at the U.S. National Institutes of Health.
