Britain’s health minister said Tuesday that the country will trial a potential vaccine for the coronavirus on people later this week.

A vaccine developed by researchers at Oxford University will be tested on people on Thursday, Health Minister Matt Hancock said in a daily news briefing.

“In normal times, reaching this stage would take years, and I’m very proud of the work taken so far,” Hancock said.
