BERLIN (Reuters) - German Research Minister Anja Karliczek said on Wednesday that a coronavirus vaccine was unlikely to be widely available before the middle of next year.

“We must continue to assume that vaccines for the broader population will only be available from the middle of next year at the earliest,” she told a news conference.
