Trump says US to have coronavirus vaccine by end of year
WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump on Sunday said the United States will have a coronavirus vaccine by the end of this year.
"We are very confident that we're going to have a vaccine at the end of the year, by the end of the year," Trump said in a Fox News "town hall" show broadcast from the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, DC.
He also said he would urge the reopening of schools and universities in September, saying "I want them to go back."
The vaccine prediction moves up the timeline that has been discussed as the United States and other countries race to be the first to bring out a way to prevent COVID-19.
Trump insisted he would be happy for another country to beat US researchers to the medicine, saying "if it's another country I'll take my hat off."
"I don't care, I just want to get a vaccine that works."
Asked about risks during human trials in a research process that is going unusually quickly, Trump said "they're volunteers. They know what they're getting into."
Trump appeared to acknowledge that he was getting ahead of his own advisors on the prediction for the vaccine.
"The doctors would say 'well, you shouldn't say that.' I'll say what I think," he said.
Trump has only swagger and bluster to offer.
Trump is an optimistic....atleast he is giving hope. and that is giving a healing touch,let's all pray the vaccine comes early.
US Govt has not handled this issue effectively
If that happens, it will be great news. Who cares, if it is US made, British made or Indian made vaccine. It should cure Covid -19.
US will come up with something, That is why they are still super power.
This fellow talks nonesence most of the times ,
Just shut up! first let vaccination be found to start growling and howling Mr. President.
Useless person on earth is trump
This Trump idiot has pushed US to backward. He has made mockery of the dignity of presidentship
Don't talk ill of Trump. He and our PM are buddies.
china might already have vaccine..
This man is so positive in his outlook that he sounds like a fool.
Frog in a well.
We hope that vaccine comes out soon
Trump has eye only on re-election and not on vaccine
Truth Is Bitter
INDIANS FOLLOW TRUMP AND INDIANS SHOULD INJECT DISINFECTANT AS ADVICE OF THEIR FATHER TRUMP
How much coverage is given by the media on India's efforts to develop the vaccine?
Trump is delusional. He will say anything that he thinks will help him get reelected.
He is absolutely correct only USA can do it.
Europe is also equally competent. Vaccine will come first either from US or from Europe.
Trump letting people die to delay election.
Its difficult ..... not impossible plus they r spending more in R&D than we do .... so apne bas ki to nahi hain ..... best of luck to t americans0
indians are smart...dont underestimate
But...smart Indians do not work for India...they are in US or Europe. Basically, vaccine will come from either US or Europe.
Braggart nothing else
This US developed vaccine will not be affordable to the most. So India should develop its own low cost vaccine.
Still by the end of year means half of USA will be dead!!!!
Only if US finds a vaccine humans can breathe a sigh of relief
Trump is liar
