Moderna CEO expects pandemic to end next year

Moderna's Chief Executive Stephane Bancel estimated on Thursday that the coronavirus pandemic could end as soon as next year once the global supplies of COVID-19 vaccines reach satisfying levels.

"If you look at the industry-wide expansion of production capacities over the past six months, enough doses should be available by the middle of next year so that everyone on this earth can be vaccinated. Boosters should also be possible to the extent required," Bancel told Swiss paper Neue Zuercher Zeitung.

The United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention shared last week that Moderna's vaccine is the most effective jab in the United States regarding preventing hospitalizations caused by the COVID-19.
