A coronavirus vaccine in the United States could be ready in a few weeks.
Donald Trump spoke about when the American vaccine against COVID-19 may be ready. The American president said this on the air of the ABC channel. He didn't specify which company's vaccine would be registered first. Trump added that thanks to him, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) will speed up the registration procedure for the drug.
“If you want to know the truth, the previous administration would have taken years to get the vaccine because of the FDA and all the approvals. And we are ready to do this within a few weeks, maybe within three or four weeks”, - the US President said.
The US government has signed an agreement to supply a batch of COVID-19 vaccines with pharmaceutical companies Moderna, Johnson & Johnson, AstraZeneca, Pfizer, BioNTech, Sanofi and GlaxoSmithKline. At the same time, the World Health Organization previously stated that countries should not rush to develop vaccines and disregard the rules of clinical trials.
