BERLIN (Reuters) - German Economy Minister Peter Altmaier said on Tuesday nobody knows when a vaccine against COVID-19 will be available.
“Nobody knows when and for how many people this (vaccine) will be available,” Altmaier told the virtual European Cluster Conference.
Altmaier’s comments came after Pfizer and its German partner BioNTech said their experimental COVID-19 vaccine is more than 90% effective based on initial trial results.
