Coronavirus vaccine to be fastest in history: Gates Foundation CEO

Mark Suzman says treatment access for all is key to defeating COVID-19

The fight against the coronavirus pandemic will yield the fastest-developed and most rapidly distributed vaccine in human history, the head of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has said, adding that research into the treatment could bear fruit in as little as 12 months.

"We are very confident that there will be a vaccine. It will be the fastest vaccine ever created in human history, and it will go to people faster than ever," Mark Suzman, the CEO of the U.S.-based philanthropic organization, said Friday in an exclusive interview with Caixin.
