British PM on Covid-19 VaccineMay 12, 2020 12:20 PM
Amid the global pandemic the only ray of hope is a proper Covid-19 vaccine. Everyone has high hopes on the miracle of modern medicine which so far cured us from life threatening diseases. The ailments that would create havoc and wipeout villages and cities a few centuries ago is nonexistent. Mankind had certainly defeated their dreaded enemies like plague, cholera, typhoid, and malaria. But 2020 and Covid-19 virus had once again compelled mankind to see previous epidemics in hindsight.
On Monday night the British Prime Minister stated that COVID-19 vaccine is "by no means guaranteed."
The Chief Scientific Adviser Patrick Vallance concurred with the views of the Prime Minister. He added that the possibility of the developing the vaccine is pretty high. The experiment and tests are happening rapidly. The situation is not as bleak as the black death of the 14th century. But the Scientific Adviser also stated that it is not guaranteed.
Prime Minister Boris Johnson reiterated what his adviser told him that there is no guarantee. But he was quite optimistic with the efforts of researchers in Oxford University. The British Government also published a document of Covid-19 recovery plan. The recovery plan would take time and the Government is looking forward to ease the lockdown and simultaneously control the Pandemic.
