CGTN published this video item, entitled “Race for COVID-19 research: Views from EU Research Council Chief” – below is their description.
Vaccines are seen as the best weapon to take a bite out of the pandemic. No wonder China recently announced it would contribute 10 million doses of COVID-19 vaccines to Covax. In the United Kingdom, the number of COVID-19 deaths has reached 100,000. Fearing the spread variants first discovered in the UK, European countries have also tightened borders and stepped up monitoring. Is the speed of research keeping pace with the raging pandemic? How can global scientific efforts turn the tide against the virus? CGTN’s Tian Wei spoke to Jean-Pierre Bourguignon, president of the European Research Council.CGTN YouTube Channel
