The American billionaire founder, “Microsoft” technology company Bill Gates, considered that the launch of a possible vaccine production against “COVID-19” infection would be possible in the best case after a year, but the actual period is two years.
Gates said it is very difficult to narrow these time limits, and if the latest evolved perfectly we will reach the production range within one year. But it is possible that we will not be able to do that, and it may take at least two years to achieve this.
Gates noted that there are hundreds of projects to develop the vaccine, calling for choosing the most reliable innovations, finding the funds necessary to develop them and arranging their production simultaneously.
He stressed that there is no escape from testing the vaccine on 3 stages to obtain a license for it, considering that the estimates that say that it is possible to start serum production are unrealistic.
Gates and his wife Melinda have already allocated $ 250 million to projects designed to prevent the spread of the Corona virus worldwide, and to develop the vaccine in 7 different laboratories under an international initiative launched by the World Health Organization.
