Scientists working on a vaccine for the deadly coronavirus infection say they are “confident” they will succeed – but they warn that it could be as long as a year before the product is ready for use.

Dr Paul Stoffels, chief scientific officer for pharmaceutical giant Johnson and Johnson, told CNBC that the company started work on the project a fortnight ago.

He said: “I’m very worried that this could become a global pandemic.

“That’s why we started working on this vaccine two weeks ago, we have to be prepared that this is going to become a global crisis.”
