As recently reported, the United Kingdom’s government has announced the investment in 21 newly rising research projects whose aim is to combat the effects of the COVID-19. The investment increases to 14 million pounds and is sponsoring an accelerated rhythm to determine treatment or a coronavirus vaccine.
In the meantime, researchers from the Oxford University of the United Kingdom have already started their production of a million doses of a so-called SARS-CoV-2 vaccine. Up until now, there is no concrete evidence to prove the effectiveness level of this vaccine since it is still too early to tell.
Alok Sharma is the business minister of the Great Britain. He has recently declared that the accelerated rhythm in which the British researchers are working is admirable. Their strive to create the perfect antidote to save and protect inhabitant’s life must be supported. This is why the government is staying firmly behind them, providing any necessary financial means.

The government in the Great Britain underlined that its primary focus is to distribute a vaccine as soon as possible to the population.
