And it got us all wondering... What's the progress with the much-needed vaccine?

Pharmaceutical organizations from all around the world worked tirelessly to discover a vaccine for months...

But, to begin with, they didn't have much luck.

However, some amazing news was brought to at the end of last year.

American multinational pharmaceutical corporation, Pfizer and German biotechnology company, BioNTech have been working on a coronavirus vaccine for the last few months and now, it's finally ready.

And as for the results?

Well, they were looking so good that some countries started distributing the COVID vaccine out to their citizens a few months ago.

Hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world have been waiting their turn to get the vaccine...

And countries such as the United Kingdom have wasted absolutely no time in administering the vaccine, with the first of 800,000 doses given out in the first week.

The arrival of this vaccine is a huge sigh of relief...

Because so many people have tragically lost their lives to this virus since it first started to spread in March last year.

More than 1 million people across the world have now died...
