South Korea president Moon Jae-in said today, on Thursday the government will spare no support for the development of a COVID-19 vaccine and therapy to treat the contagious disease, during a visit to a vaccine development company, Yonhap reported.
“To completely overcome the coronavirus, the development of a vaccine and treatment is a mountain to surmount without fail,” Moon said.
“The government will not spare support to the end until the work succeeds for sure,” he added.
Moon met with related experts and business leaders at SK bioscience, a vaccine unit of SK Group, in Seongnam, south of Seoul.
He emphasized the significance of an indigenous vaccine and treatment, which is “stable and superb,” even if such a material, for which the world is eagerly waiting, is found abroad first.
He cited the need to have the experience of developing a coronavirus vaccine and lower its supply prices.
