COVID vaccine founder becomes World's richest Turk

Dr. Uğur Şahin , the CEO of the German BioNTech company, which developed the coronavirus vaccine, entered the Bloomberg's 500 richest person list with a fortune of $ 5.12 billion and became the richest Turk in the World.

Dr. Uğur Şahin and wife Dr. While Özlem Türeci were the first scientists to develop the COVID19 vaccine, the value of their company increased rapidly in a short amount of time. It was noteworthy that Özlem Türeci was not included in Bloomberg's list.

The stock value of the Germany-based BioNTech company, which developed the COVID19 vaccine with Pfizer, increased more than 250 percent this year. The rise in the value of BioNTech shares traded on the Nasdaq stock exchange in the US, made Dr. Şahin one of the richest 500 people in the world with a $ 5.1 billion fortune.
