Kamala Harris wouldn’t trust Trump on pre-election covid-19 vaccine

Vastavam web: Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris said in comments released Saturday that if a coronavirus vaccine is available before November’s election, she would not take President Donald Trump’s word on its safety and efficacy. Trump faces intense pressure to curb the contagion that has clouded his re-election prospects, sparking worries his administration could rush vaccine research to fit a political timetable. “I would not trust Donald Trump and it would have to be a credible source of information that talks about the efficacy and the reliability of (a vaccine),” Harris told.

This week news broke that the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asked states to sweep away red tape that could prevent a network of vaccine distribution centers being “fully operational by 1 November, 2020.” The US Food and Drug Administration has also raised the possibility that a vaccine might be given emergency authorization before the end of trials. However, Anthony Fauci, the country’s leading infectious disease expert, said Thursday that the initial results of vaccine trials could come in “November or December.” Fauci told that being ready in October, before the election, is “unlikely, not impossible.”
