The appearance of the drug as early as October 2020 is possible but unlikely. Experts point to November or December.
Anthony Fauci, director of the US National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases, said that the likelihood of a coronavirus vaccine in the United States in October this year is small. This is stated in his speech on the air of the CNN television channel.
вЂњIf someone takes the risk of saying that (the vaccine) will appear in October, it is difficult to argue with him. It is unlikely, but not impossible. Most experts are of the opinion that November or December is closer to the end of the year.вЂќ вЂ” noted Fauci.
It is, according to him, an effective and safe drug.
вЂњI emphasize вЂ” it must be safe and effective. In this case, I will be ready to take this vaccine myself and recommend that my family members do the same,вЂќ added the chief American infectious disease specialist.
Fauci previously talked about the risks associated with the premature release of the COVID-19 vaccine.
