Moderna's COVID Vaccine Will Reportedly Be Reviewed by WHO This Week

The review would be a precursor to the international agency making a final decision on the vaccine between one and four days later. Approval for emergency listing "is a signal to national regulatory authorities on a product's safety and efficacy," Reuters said.
