When will a coronavirus vaccine be ready? A vaccine that enables to resume our lives without restrictions while protecting us from the COVID-19 disease? Research labs around the world are racing to create a new vaccine. The idea is to simulate an infection, while avoiding the possibly severe symptoms of Covid-19. Once vaccinated, our immune system should destroy the coronavirus if we are exposed to it.
According to the WHO, there are currently more than 60 teams of scientists working on a vaccine. Under normal circumstances, it would take more than ten years. But thanks to previous research efforts there's a chance this process may be fast-tracked, with human trials already underway in some cases. But scientists agree that it will still take months until a vaccine is approved.
