The European Union's COVID-19 vaccine will be available worldwide


German Chancellor Angela Merkel said the SARS-CoV-2 virus vaccine that causes COVID-19 acute respiratory infections, which the European Union (EU) is planning to deploy, will be available globally.

According to Merkel, the amount of 7.5 billion euros (about 8.3 billion USD) that this country and the EU leaders call for fundraising to serve research and vaccine preparation is not enough.

Therefore, the German leader emphasized: Berlin will take responsibility as well as make a significant financial contribution to the development of vaccines, drugs as well as the best diagnostic options for everyone in the world.

Merkel said Germany is expected to continue to work closely with the World Health Organization (WHO) in dealing with COVID-19. Expected, on 4/5, the German leader will attend a conference to sponsor the fight against pandemic at the invitation of the European Commission (EC).

Compared with many other European countries, Germany seems to have taken better control of the disease. The people of this country continue to strictly follow the measures proposed by the Prime Minister of Merkel.

As of May 3, Germany recorded 6,794 deaths due to COVID-19, lower than its neighbors such as Italy (28,710 deaths), Spain (24,543 deaths) or France (24,597 deaths).
