Covid-19 vaccine creator, prof. Ugur Sahin says normal life will be back in 2021
Prof. Ugur Sahin, the co-founder of BioNTech, the creators of a new vaccine for Covid-19, has said that the impact of the vaccine will become very significant over summer and normal life will resume around March and April of 2021.
He also raised hopes that a shot of the vaccine could halve the transmission of the virus, resulting in a “dramatic reduction in cases.”
BioNTech and co-developers Pfizer, last week, announced the creation of a new vaccine that could prevent more than 90% of people from getting Covid-19.
In an interview on BBC, Sahin said he expected further analysis to show the vaccine could reduce transmission between people as well as stop symptoms developing in someone who has had the vaccine.
He said the goal was to deliver more than 300 million doses worldwide by April, 2021, which “could allow us to only start to make an impact.”
