Hi Folks.
Pfizer and BioNTech's coronavirus vaccine entered human clinical trials and may be tested in the US next week.
A potential vaccine for the novel coronavirus codeveloped by pharmaceutical giant Pfizer and German biotech BioNTech has entered human trials in Germany, and is expected to be tested in the US as early as next week.

The duo's vaccine could be set for emergency use in the fall — well ahead of experts' predictions — with the potential for hundreds of millions of doses to be produced in 2021.

The promise of BioNTech's recent work with Pfizer lies in biotech firms' research brawn and ability to rapidly develop vaccine candidates for novel diseases via technologies like AI.
