US President Donald Trump has promised that the country will not try to make money on a coronavirus vaccine if US companies create it first. He stated this during a briefing.
According to him, the United States may provide access to other countries for the vaccine at affordable prices, because companies are working on a vaccine, not for profit. вЂњPeople want an answer, they are not looking for profit,вЂќ Trump emphasized.
The American leader said that if China is the first to develop a coronavirus vaccine, the United States will also expect access to it. According to him, work is now underway with many countries. вЂњHere we have no pride, we work together,вЂќ he added.
Trump previously explained that 14 were selected from more than 100 options for a potential vaccine. He stressed that the US authorities will do everything possible to expedite the testing of vaccines and obtaining permission to use them. Including the United States will be ready to invest in the production of the most promising prototypes.
In early May, Trump announced the timing of the appearance of the coronavirus vaccine in the United States. According to him, American experts are likely to create a vaccine against a new coronavirus by the end of this year.
