This was disclosed at a meeting between the Minister of Health and heads of the universities and Research institutions to update the Ministry on what they are doing to find a possible vaccine for the disease.

Joining the discussion via zoom, Chairman of Vice Chancellors, Ghana, Professor John Gyapong said since the virus arrived in the country in March, universities have been at the forefront of the fight.

He said they are not relenting in their effort at finding a possible vaccine to fight Covid-19.
