New Delhi: India’s coronavirus count rose to 56.46 lakh after the health ministry reported a rise of 83,347 new cases in 24 hours.
World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus says there is no guarantee if any of the vaccine that are being developed will work against Covid-19, reports Reuters. “We have no guarantee that any vaccine in development will work,” he says at a virtual briefing. “The more candidates we test, the higher the chance we will have for a safe and efficacious vaccine. Almost 200 vaccine for Covid-19 are currently in clinical and preclinical testing. The history of vaccine development tells us some will fail and some will succeed.”
The toll from the spread of the coronavirus in the United States surpassed 2,00,000. This is by far the highest number of deaths recorded by any country.
