WHO's Tedros: First vaccine against coronavirus could be ready in 18 months
World Health Organization (WHO) chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus announced that the new coronavirus will be called COVID-19.
"The first vaccine against coronavirus (COVID-19) could be ready in 18 months, so we have to do everything today using available weapons to fight this virus," Tedros explained.
These comments don't seem to be having a significant impact on market sentiment. As of writing, the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq Composite were both adding nearly 0.7% on the day and the 10-year US Treasury bond yield was up 0.3%.
