BioNTech's COVID-19 vaccine to be approved by Dec - CEO

German pharmaceutical firm BioNTech believes it will get its vaccine against coronavirus approved by December, the company's CEO Dr. Ugur Sahin said on Friday.

In an interview with The Wall Street Journal, Dr. Sahin claimed that several hundred million doses of vaccine, which is being built in cooperation with Pfizer Inc., could be made before the approval, while over one billion doses are planned to be produced by the end of 2021.

"Our early data so far has shown that our vaccine candidate can produce antibodies at a higher level than those found in people who have recovered from a Covid-19 infection," he explained.
