    There are signs of progress on development of a Covid-19 vaccine being tested by Chinese company Fosun Pharma in collaboration with German’s BioNTech, according to Guo Guangchang, chairman of Fosun International. Guo said the vaccine being developed is an mRNA jab, which is faster and cheaper to produce than traditional vaccines. The vaccines are also considered safer for patients since they are not produced using infectious elements, according to the health care think tank PHG Foundation, which is part of Britain’s Cambridge University.
