To understand the vaccine's efficacy-that is, whether it can protect individuals from COVID-19-a certain number of COVID-19 cases in the phase 3 trial need to be counted before investigators can compare the effectiveness of the vaccine with placebo.

He described the offer as a response to popular demand: 'Some colleagues from the United Nations have asked about this, and we will not remain indifferent to them'.

Trials for a vaccine produced by AstraZeneca remain frozen by the Food and Drug Administration after a neurological issue was discovered in a trial participant in the UK.

"As far as I know, we already have a third vaccine in development", he added, which is now being tested at the Chumakov research centre of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

Pfizer Inc expects to provide safety data and file for authorization of the COVID-19 vaccine it is developing with German partner BioNTech in late November, delaying any clarity on the vaccine until after the Nov. 3 USA presidential election.

Pfizer Inc PFE.N said on Friday it could file for US authorization of the COVID-19 vaccine it is developing with German partner BioNTech 22UAy.F as early as late November, suggesting that it's possible a vaccine could be available in the United States this year.

Bourla noted, "The timelines above reflect our best estimates of when these important milestones could be achieved".

Moderna could also apply for an emergency use authorisation (EUA) this year.

The Southeast Asian nation has 346,536 confirmed COVID-19, the highest in the region, and 6,449 deaths.

Last month, President Donald Trump said that a COVID-19 vaccine would be distributed within 24 hours of completion of phase 3 trials and FDA approval.

The cold chain network which the hospital created can deliver the vaccine in less than 30 mins and in maximum 48 hours across the country. Another U.S. trial of a candidate from Johnson & Johnson JNJ.N was paused earlier this week.

Polls show many Americans are hesitant about taking a coronavirus vaccine and concerned that the approval process could be driven by politics.

A booth displaying a coronavirus vaccine candidate from China National Biotec Group (CNBG), is seen at the 2020 China International Fair for Trade in Services (CIFTIS), following the Covid-19 outbreak, in Beijing, China September 4, 2020. They aim to be in a position to deliver tens of millions of doses to the U.S. by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, a 50 euro double-dose experimental coronavirus vaccine is being made available to some residents in an eastern Chinese city, health officials have said, the first details of a mass rollout for an as-yet unproven vaccine. The agreement provides the USA government an option to purchase an additional 500 million doses.
