The World Health Organization says the Access to Covid-19 Tools Accelerator has, over the past few months, made a lot of progress, to deliver a safe and effective covid-19 vaccine.
The accelerator is aimed at speeding up the development of a vaccine, that will be distributed to all participating countries across the globe.
The Director-General of the WHO, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, says there are currently 200 vaccines in different stages of development.
He says of the 38 possible vaccines that are now being tested on humans, eight are in their phase-3 trials.
