Suara.com – The mutation of the Corona virus carries a threat to the handling of the pandemic, which has already started with the provision of the COVID-19 vaccine.
In order to find out more about the mutation of the Corona virus, the European Union (EU) this week will gather scientists and researchers.
European Commission President Ursula von Der Leyen said the new program aims to prepare the next generation of vaccines that may be needed, he told Les Echos.
The program, called the HERA incubator, will bring together health authorities and laboratories and have its own funding.
The program will be launched on Wednesday (17/2) tomorrow.
“Today, and in line with the efforts being made on the current vaccine, we must help industrial companies develop production capacity for second generation vaccines,” said von der Leyen.
Von der Leyen last week acknowledged the failure of the EU regarding the approval and launch of a vaccine for COVID-19.
After the EU was hit by criticism about the slow rollout of a vaccine, he said the group of European nations was taking lessons from the rolling process.
Previously reported, the UK Vaccine Procurement Minister, Nadhim Zahawi, said there are around 4,000 variants of the virus that causes COVID-19 worldwide now.
