England's population to be vaccinated by April - report

British National Health Service (NHS) is planning to have every adult in England vaccinated against coronavirus, the Health Service Journal reported on Saturday, citing a leaked document dated November 13.

Earlier in the day, it was announced the United Kingdom would be the first country to test a new antibody treatment produced by AstraZeneca, which could serve as an optional medicine for those that do not respond to a vaccine. AstraZeneca formerly stated the jab it is developing with Oxford University showed had so far proved to be safe and to produce immunity.

British Health Secretary Matt Hancock expressed his hopes the mass vaccination against COVID-19 in the country would begin in a "matter of weeks."
