Since the first covid-19 vaccines were approved, an intense debate has arisen that divided the world.

On the one hand, there were the pharmaceutical companies of powerful countries that protected the intellectual property of the vaccines they developed.

And on the other, those who asked for the patent release so that vaccines could be produced in greater quantities and reached the poorest countries.

Now, a Honduran scientist hopes to end that confrontation, thanks to the development of a patent-free vaccine.
