Coronavirus: Vaccine could be ready in nine months – Bill Gates

American business magnate and philanthropist, Bill Gates, on Thursday said it could take as long as two years or at least nine months before a vaccine can be found to tackle the deadly coronavirus pandemic that has claimed thousands of lives across the globe.

Mr Gates said as of April 9, 115 different COVID-19 potential vaccines were being developed globally.

The co-founder of Microsoft Corporation said although scientists across the globe are in a frantic race against time to get a suitable vaccine to halt the death toll created by COVID-19, safety and efficacy are the two most important considerations.

Mr Gates, who penned down his thoughts in his regular publication, The GatesNotes, The Insider Edition, also highlighted some of the global processes needed to fast-track the process of getting a competent vaccine to save billions of lives across the

“Anthony Fauci has said he thinks it’ll take around eighteen months to develop a coronavirus vaccine. I agree with him, though it could be as little as 9 months or as long as two years,” Mr Gates said.

Mr Fauci is the director, National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and is regarded as America’s most trusted voice in the fight against the ravaging pandemic.
