COVID-19 vaccine will release before US Elections: Trump

Vastavam web: United States would have a covid-19 vaccine before November 3 Elections, says US president Trump. Asked on the Geraldo Rivera radio program when a vaccine might be ready, Trump said, “Sooner than the end of the year, could be much sooner.” Later at media meeting at white house, Trump said he was optimistic a vaccine would release around at that time. Asked if it would help him at coming elections, he said, I wont bother about elections result. But I’m doing this for United States people, not for election. If the vaccine come in that time it will save lot of lives, trump said.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. government infectious diseases official, offered a more conservative view in a Reuters interview on Wednesday, saying there might be an indication that at least one vaccine works and is safe by year end. Health Secretary Alex Azar on Thursday denied the push for a vaccine was political, but did not say whether he believed it was possible to have a vaccine ready before Election Day.

While a quick vaccine is essential, bill sponsor U.S. Representative Raja Krishnamoorthi said, it is very important that quality of vaccine is very Important and we need more testing on this and should not sacrifice quality for speed in testing.
