The World Health Organization (WHO) has revealed that 150 COVID-19 vaccines have been made available, but only 19 are currently undergoing clinical trial.
The organization made this known through its Regional Office for Africa in Brazaville on Thursday night.
The information which was passed on the official twitter account of the regional office @WHOAFRO disclosed that there are nearly 150 COVID-19 vaccines.
“As scientists across the world race to find a COVID-19 vaccine, @WHO urges all to take concrete actions to ensure equitable access. If & when a vaccine is developed, it must be available to everyone, not only those who can afford to pay.
“Globally, there are 19 potential COVID-19 vaccines currently in clinical trials.
“South Africa is the first African country to start a clinical trial, with @WitsUniversity testing a vaccine developed by Oxford Jenner Institute. Trials for the vaccine are ongoing in the UK & Brazil.” @WHOAFRO tweeted.
