The Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) has described as false media reports that, its Pharmacy Department, has created a vaccine for the deadly coronavirus which has claimed over 81 lives.

A statement signed by the university’s Relations Officer, Dr Daniel Norris Bekoe, urged the public to disregard such reports.

The report, circulating on social media, claimed an eight-member team, made up of students, worked on the vaccine supervised by one Professor Dr Israel Nluki.

But, the statement copied to, said “Prof Nluki has no affiliation with KNUST.”
