Bill Gates says the world would need as many as 14 billion doses of a coronavirus vaccine to stop the virus

by Tyler Sonnemaker, Business Insider:

  • The world could need as many as 14 billion doses of COVID-19 vaccines, Bill Gates said on Thursday in a blog post about the race to develop a way to make people immune to the disease.
  • “We need to make billions of doses, we need to get them out to every part of the world, and we need all of this to happen as quickly as possible,” Gates said.
  • Gates said he had his eyes on eight to 10 promising candidates, adding that healthcare workers and people in low-income countries should be first in line once we find one that works.
