"And that makes me feel like, for the rich world, we should largely be able to end this thing by the end of 2021, and for the world at large by the end of 2022."

He noted that some of the vaccines that are currently being developed are likely to only help in wealthier countries.

Speaking about antibodies, Gates said: "Antibodies are two to three months away. We've had about a factor-of-two improvement in hospital outcomes already, and that's with just remdesivir and dexamethasone. These other things will be additive to that."

At this point, there’s no telling when the coronavirus pandemic will truly end. A vaccine is probably the only way out.

In other news, the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) has assured Nigerians that it will ensure citizens have access to COVID-19 vaccines when available.
