As countries race to find a coronavirus cure, Germany’s research minister has said any vaccine was unlikely to be available until the middle of 2021 at the earliest.
“We should not expect a miracle,” Anja Karliczek told a news conference on Wednesday.
“We must continue to assume that vaccines for the broader population will only be available from the middle of next year at the earliest.”
Karliczek said Germany was providing funding grants to three German biotech firms — CureVac from Tübingen, BioNTech from Mainz and Dessau-based IDT Biologika so they could speed up the development of coronavirus vaccine candidates.
