For all we know, several labs in different countries could be working on a particular kind of vaccine: what if said vaccine turns out bad and doesn't work? All that time wasted in several labs ...Well, countries are probably pretty bad at developing vaccines. Private labs are on the case.
I've heard there is a great deal of collaboration. It's also advantageous to try several new experimental approaches due to the urgency of the situation.
Government beaureaucracy forcing all labs to work on the same dead-end could be a colossal mistake.
If they worked out in a World Wide centralized fashion so that they could work on different vaccines WITHOUT any "duplicates" so that, if one of them fails, only one lab if affected and all others are informed of what DOESN'T WORK.
