French pharmaceutical giant, Sanofi to make COVID-19 vaccine available – Official Sanofi, a French pharmaceutical company, has disclosed plans to make any vaccine it develops against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) available to all.

According to a tweet from Sanofi Director General, Paul Hudson on Wednesday evening, “The vaccine against COVID-19 will be made available to the public at large, regardless of nationality.”

The message came after Hudson, in an interview with Bloomberg, said the U.S. would have priority because they were the first in line to fund the company’s research.

“The US government has the right to the largest pre-order because it’s invested in taking the risk,” Hudson told Bloomberg.
