Coronavirus vaccine could be available in Germany by the start of 2021, Klaus Cichutek, head of the Paul Ehrlich Institut said on Wednesday, APA reports citing Teletrader.

Citing the optimistic results from the first two phases of vaccine trials revealed by multiple pharmaceutical companies, and the assurances received by the drugmakers, Cichutek predicted that the inoculation in Germany could start as early as the start of the next year, but stressed that it will probably be "with conditions attached."

The number of COVID-19 cases in the country rose by 1,500 in the last 24 hours, according to Berliner Morgenpost's tally, while Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel revealed that the virus containment measures in the country will stay in effect due to the increase in daily infections.
