Good news – the pharma firms are getting together

Swiss pharmaceuticals giant Novartis announced last week that it had signed an initial agreement to help produce the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine against COVID-19.

This followed an announcement from pharmaceutical firm Sanofi that it too had reached an agreement to help the German biotech BioNTech manufacture the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccine.

The great news is that these guys know how to produce medications and vaccines so this can only help – a lot – in getting more vaccine doses out there.
