Dr. Onyeama Ogbuagbu has been identified as a key figure in the research that led United States pharmaceutical company, Pfizer, to develop the first effective COVID-19 vaccine.
According to Sahara reporter news outlet: "Speaking in an interview this afternoon with ABC News on the vaccine, he said although doses will be unavailable to everyone at first, massive distribution was expected to take off in the first quarter of 2021.
Pfizer said it would launch a pilot in four states in the United States but there have been concerns as the vaccine needs to be stored at -94 degrees Fahrenheit (-70 degree Celsius), a challenge Ogbuagbu said would be overcome soon."
In light of this new updates many are eager to see an end to the ravaging Covid-19 pandemic that has claimed lives and family in every parts of the world and that the world could return back to it usual state stronger and better.
