Sanofi CEO promises vaccine will be available worldwide at once

Sanofi will make its COVID-19 vaccine available everywhere in the world at the same time, CEO Paul Hudson said on Thursday. He is due to meetFrench President Emmanuel Macron on May to discuss the issue.

The vaccine developed by Sanofi is being funded by the United States Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), which said it could help the pharmaceutical company start production on the vaccine as soon as possible. The confirmation comes after Hudson stated earlier that the US would have priority in obtaining the vaccine which drew strong criticism from France and the European Union.

Currently, 110 vaccines for COVID-19 are being developed worldwide and eight are currently in clincal trials. According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), four of these are being developed in China, three in the US, and while one is being developed by Oxford University in the United Kingdom.
