    A COVID-19 vaccine could be ready in the form of an inhaler in just weeks, it is believed.

    Researchers at University of Oxford say the are "80% confident" the coronavirus vaccine they've been developing will work, particularly on younger people.

    Drug company Astra Zeneca will produce two billion doses of the vaccine when it gets the green light, it is reported today.

    Professor Adrian Hill, of the university's Centre for Personalised Medicine, reportedly gave the new details in an online lecture this week.

    He said: “We are guessing that might be around about August time - it might be before if cases do not decline as quickly as we expect, or be later if we run out of cases."

    He added the drug will be in the form of an inhaler, it is understood.

    Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates has reportedly given significant funding for the cause.

    But the coronavirus drug is still undergoing trials at the university’s Jenner Institute, which is working with the Oxford Vaccine Group on the project.

    Currently, there is no vaccine or treatment available for Covid-19 but doctors across the globe are testing current anti-viral drugs to see if they can beat coronavirus.
