Pfizer Vaccine May Be Ready For Tests Next Week

The New York Post reports:

The pharmaceutical giant Pfizer said Tuesday that a new coronavirus vaccine could be tested as early as next week — with the potential for emergency use by fall, a report said Tuesday. “This is a crisis right now, and a solution is desperately needed by all,” Pfizer Chief Executive Albert Bourla told the Wall Street Journal.

Pfizer is working with German-based BioNtech to deliver the possible vaccine. Health regulators in the US may approve testing the vaccine on humans by next week, Bourla told the paper. But the odds of developing a successful vaccine are slim, with just 6 percent of them becoming market-ready after a series of strict tests.
