In two weeks there will be data on whether the vaccine against the new corona variant will work

According to Biontech, vaccinations could lead to a “normal life” without a shutdown by the end of the summer. That said Biontech boss Ugur Sahin on Tuesday in a press conference.

According to its own information, the company expects information on whether the vaccine also prevents asymptomatic corona infections by the end of January or the beginning of February. Then appropriate data should be available.

According to its own information, Biontech expects to make 12.5 million doses of vaccine available to EU countries by the end of the year. The company also states that it is considering all possibilities to expand its own production as much as possible.

According to a BioNTech board member, the corona vaccine will be delivered to 25 distribution centers in Germany. From there it will be distributed further.

Biontech boss Sahin is confident that his company's corona vaccine will also work against the new mutation of the virus that has emerged in Great Britain. From a scientific point of view, the probability of this is high, he told the German press agency. “We have already tested the vaccine against around 20 other virus variants with other mutations. The immune response produced by our vaccine has always inactivated all forms of the virus. "
