President Donald Trump said on Sunday that the United States will have a coronavirus virus 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 that he would urge the schools and universities to reopen in September, “I want them to go back.”
The vaccine prediction advances the timeline that has been discussed as the United States and other countries to figure out the first way to stop COVID-19.
Trump insisted that he would be happy to give medicine to American researchers for another country, stating that “if it’s another country I’ll take off my hat.”
“I don’t care, I just want to get a vaccine that works.”
When asked about the risks during human trials in a research process that is happening unusually quickly, Trump said “they volunteer. They know what they are doing.”
Trump admitted that he was overtaking his 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.
