Germany honors Turkish vaccine pioneers


Germany's president conferred Turkish scientists Ugur Sahin and Ozlem Tureci with the country's highest award on Friday for inventing the world's first effective vaccine against COVID-19.

Frank-Walter Steinmeier presented the Order of Merit to Sahin and Tureci at a ceremony held at the Bellevue Palace, which was also attended by Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"On behalf of our country, I would like to thank you both for your outstanding scientific achievements, and I wish that your further major research plans would bring about similar groundbreaking successes for you and for all of us," Steinmeier said at the ceremony.
