According to the data collected by Bloomberg, only 122 countries started to vaccinate against Covid-19, while the chief scientist of the World Health Organization, Swaminathan, known for tuberculosis and HIV research and a pediatrician, said, “We were very impressed by the vaccines we have,” We can improve “he said.
Swaminathan said, “I think by 2022, we will see new developed vaccines emerge,” he said, adding that new vaccines include alternative technologies such as single-dose, oral, and nasal spray, and that these treatments can also be applied to pregnant people.
Companies with Covid-19 vaccines currently in use have also started testing updated versions of the vaccines they previously developed to prevent corona virus variants that have emerged in recent months.
