Covid-19 pandemic

As much of the world goes into lockdown to prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus, hopes are already being invested into the development of a vaccine as a way out of the crisis. However, aside from being several months away, large questions remain over who will develop the vaccine, how much it will cost and who will have access to it.
