US President Donald Trump has said that three American vaccines are already in the final stages of clinical trials and could provide excellent results.
вЂњThree potential vaccines are now in the third phase of clinical trials, this is the final stage,вЂќ Trump said at a White House briefing.
All three vaccines are вЂњvery promising,вЂќ he said.
Trump also announced an agreement with Moderna to purchase 100 million doses of the coronavirus vaccine it is developing if the drug is registered.
Earlier, Trump said that a coronavirus vaccine in the United States could be ready around the beginning of November. At the same time, answering a clarifying question about November 3, when the presidential elections will be held in the United States, Trump said: вЂњI think in some cases yes, maybe earlier, but around that time.вЂќ
Pfizer and Moderna are currently at the forefront of COVID-19 vaccine development in the United States.
The day before, Russian President Vladimir Putin said that Russia was the first in the world to register a vaccine against coronavirus.
