BioNTech CEO Ugur Sahin on Tuesday said his company can make a new coronavirus vaccine that works against the mutated strain detected in the UK in six weeks in case the mutation is resistant to its current vaccine.

BioNTech has developed a Covid-19 vaccine with Pfizer. Sahin said that the proteins on the UK variant are 99% the same as on the prevailing strains, and therefore BioNTech has “scientific confidence” that its vaccine will be effective.
