The vaccine against the coronavirus may be ready by year-end, said WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in an executive board meeting.

Addressing the end of a two-day meeting of its Executive Board on the pandemic, WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said, “We will need vaccines and there is hope that by the end of this year we may have a vaccine. There is hope.”

Nine experimental vaccines are in the pipeline of the WHO’s COVAX global vaccine facility that aims to distribute 2 billion doses by the end of 2021.

The two-day board meeting, which examined the global response to the pandemic, heard calls from countries including Germany, Britain, and Australia for reforms to strengthen the U.N. agency.
