In other news, Nigerian universities’ scientists under the aegis of COVID-19 Research Group have discovered COVID-19 vaccine.

The scientists made the disclosure on Friday, June 19, saying the vaccine was being developed locally in Africa for Africans but would also work for other continents when unveiled.

Legit.ng gathers that the leader of the team, Dr Oladipo Kolawole, said it would take a minimum of 18 months for the vaccine to be unveiled to the public.

He said this is because a lot of analysis and studies, as well as approvals by medical authorities, were still required.

Meanwhile, YEN.com.gh previously reported that the widower of a Ghanaian nurse who died of coronavirus, Kwame Boateng, had reacted to her death.

Kwame Boateng's wife, Mary Ageiwaa Agyapong, died of coronavirus in the United Kingdom.

Mary Agyapong, 28, was heavily pregnant with their second child when she was diagnosed with coronavirus and died weeks later.
