World Science day celebrated on every 10 November to mark Science for peace and development was celebrated this year with an online roundtable to share ideas for improving links between science and society aimed at resolving global challenges such as COVID-19 pandemic organized by UNESCO.

During this year’s world Science day celebrations, UNESCO also explained the importance of equal access to education in science technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) placing emphases on empowering girls and women to pursue STEM related courses and careers. With the current wave of COVID across the world ushering some European countries into another phase of lockdown, a promising vaccine jointly developed by UN pharmaceutical and Pfizer and German partner BioNtech has proven to be 90 per cent effective in preventing COVID – 19 infections in ongoing phase 3 trials.

According to the World Health organization, 10 candidate vaccines are at the most advance phase 3 stage with Pfizer/BioNTech scoring a big win in the initial results of their phase 3 trial, the last stage of efficacy testing before a vaccine can be fully deployed in the wider population
