Covid pandemic 'far from over', warns Oxford vaccine creator, Sarah Gilbert.

A NEW pandemic could be more lethal and spread faster than Covid, a top vaccine scientist warns today.

Professor Dame Sarah Gilbert, one of the creators of the Oxford/AstraZeneca jab, says the world should not forget the threat of a fresh deadly outbreak once the current pandemic ends.
