In other news, Nigerian universities’ scientists under the aegis of Covid-19 Research Group have supposedly discovered a COVID-19 vaccine.

The scientists made the disclosure on Friday, 19 June, saying the vaccine was being developed locally in Africa for Africans but would also work for other continents when unveiled.

Briefly.co.za gathers that the leader of the team, Dr Oladipo Kolawole, said it would take a minimum of 18 months for the vaccine to be unveiled to the public.

He said this is because a lot of analysis and studies, as well as approvals by medical authorities, were still required.
