COVID-19: the end of the pandemic in 2021?


A few hours away from turning the page on this year that will be remembered for a long time, we are proud to offer you this special edition of “La race aux cèdes”, this monthly meeting to which we have accustomed you since the start of the pandemic, and which allows us to take stock of the quest for COVID-19 vaccines and drugs.

#In this year-end review, you will discover the analysis of our columnist #Richard Béliveau, doctor in biochemistry, who found five good reasons to anticipate the arrival of 2021 with optimism. A four-page analysis not to be missed.

#Doc Béliveau also gives his opinion on a multitude of other subjects, as you will see in the little capsules that we have inserted throughout this special section.

#While vaccination has started at home and elsewhere in the world, our team of journalists takes stock of the development of vaccines already known, but also of those whose research is progressing well around the globe.

The coronavirus war is still far from being won, however, and it is important to continue looking for drugs to fight COVID-19. #Several scientific researches caught the attention of our team and are the subject of reports throughout this special section.

#We hope you will enjoy reading this end-of-year report, which gives hope, as you will see for yourselves, that the pandemic will end in 2021.

#Happy reading and … happy new year!
