COVID-19: Trump speaks on when Coronavirus vaccine will be ready
US President, Donald Trump, has revealed that America will announce a coronavirus vaccine by the end of this year.
Trump made the revelation during a Fox News town hall broadcast from Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on Sunday.
“We are very confident that we’re going to have a vaccine at the end of the year, by the end of the year,” he said.
Trump added that he will advocate for reopening of schools and universities in September.
The US president, however, insisted he would be happy for another country to beat American 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.”
