SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – AUGUST 19: A general view of AstraZeneca is seen during Prime Minister Scott Morrison’s visit on August 19, 2020 in Sydney, Australia. The Australian government has announced an agreement with the British pharmaceutical giant AstraZeneca to secure at least 25 million doses of a COVID-19 vaccine if it passes clinical trials. The University of Oxford COVID-19 vaccine is currently in phase-three testing. If the vaccine proves to be successful, Australia will manufacture and supply vaccines and will be made available for free. The project could deliver the first vaccines by the end of this year or by early 2021. (Photo by Lisa Maree Williams/Getty Images)
