GENEVA (Reuters) - The World Health Organization’s chief scientist said on Monday she expected there to be “very limited” COVID-19 vaccine doses available in the first half of 2021.

Soumya Swaminathan said that she remained optimistic that the body would be able to work with many manufacturers to have a wide selection of vaccines as part of its global distribution scheme.
