The United States and Germany are vying to produce an exclusive vaccine against the coronavirus which is being developed in a German laboratory, Die Welt daily reported Saturday.

According to the paper, US President Donald Trump is trying to poach German scientists working on an experimental vaccine against a global health threat that has now killed some 5,500 people with a view to having an exclusive licence rolled out in the United States. Such a vaccine would be “only for the United States,” a source close to the German government told Die Welt, though Berlin is reportedly looking to make offers of its own to biotech firm CureVac, based in the German state of Thuringia. The company, founded in 2000, has other sites in Frankfurt and Boston.
