Director-General of the World Health Organisation Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said that 141 COVID-19 vaccines are currently being developed in the world, APA reports citing The Washington Post.

"Consider the vital role that international cooperation is already playing around the development of a COVID-19 vaccine. This began almost as soon as the coronavirus’s sequence was shared online, and there are now 141 vaccines in development. Leading candidates may be only months from success. Of course, there is no guarantee of full protection, but we are hopeful", Ghebreyesus said.

He also expressed hope that the United States would continue its cooperation with the WHO despite President Donald Trump's remarks about the withdrawal of funding for the organisation.
