Coronavirus, which originated in the city of Wuhan, China, has created chaos across the world putting economies, businesses, and other daily life activities to halt. To get rid of this pandemic, several biotech companies across the world have ramped up the vaccine program. Vaccination is a quick and effective way to gain immunity against a particular disease. For the record, the vaccine contains an agent that resembles a disease-causing microorganism, which is made up of toxins or part of surface proteins from a killed or weakened form of microbe.
While the vaccine-creation process is time-consuming, numerous startups are using their expertise and capabilities to find and develop technology-driven solutions as well. Right now, there are several vaccines out there in the development against COVID-19 in various stages and are quite different from one another. In this regard, we have jotted down 7 European startups working round the clock to develop and release the COVID-19 vaccine.
