Donald Trump and Joe Biden are insulting each other’s position on a vaccine for Kovid-19.
President Trump then indicated that a vaccine may be available before the November presidential election and accused his Democratic rivals of “reckless anti-vaccine rhetoric.”
Mr. Biden expressed doubt that Mr. Trump would listen to the scientists and implement a transparent process.
There are six million cases of coronavirus in the US, the highest in the world.
The virus has claimed the lives of about 190,000 people and caused a major recession, double-digit unemployment and consumer confidence.
Last week it emerged by the US Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), urging states to “be able to deliver the vaccine by November 1, two days before the November 3 election” on “waiver requirements” Consider.
No vaccine has yet completed clinical trials, leading some scientists to fear politics rather than health and safety.
Both Mr. Biden and his running mate Kamala Harris have questioned the president’s credibility on the issue. Ms. Harris said Sunday that she would not trust Mr. Trump’s word that a vaccine was safe, and that Mr. Biden also questioned whether the wider public would trust him as well.
“They said a lot of things are not true. I’m worried that if we have a good vaccine, people are going to be reluctant to take it,” Mr. Biden said in Pennsylvania on Monday.
But he said: “If I can get a vaccine tomorrow, I will do it. If it costs me an election I will do it. We need a vaccine and we need it right now. We have to listen to the scientists Will happen.”
Trailing in the elections, Mr. Trump called Mr. Biden “stupid” at the White House news conference, and Ms. Harris “the most liberal person in Congress …” who I thought was not a competent person.
He said they would “destroy this country and destroy this economy”, adding that they should “immediately apologize for the careless anti-vaccine rhetoric that they are talking about right now”.
The president several times asked journalists to take their faces off when they asked questions, again suggesting that a vaccine might be ready next month. “We are going to get a vaccine very soon, maybe even before a very special date.”
Mr. Trump wants to have 300 million doses of the coronovirus vaccine in stock by January, and has spent hundreds of billions of dollars in hopes of accelerating the development of a vaccine that could take years under normal circumstances.
America’s top infectious disease specialist, Drs. Anthony Fauci has said that it is not impossible, but “not impossible” that a vaccine could win approval in October, and Stephen Hahn of the Food and Drug Administration said it may be “appropriate” to approve the clinical. The vaccine is completed before the tests if the benefits reduce the risks.
But officials from both the White House and the top five pharmaceutical companies have made it clear that there will be no compromise on the safety and effectiveness of a vaccine.
Three vaccine trials in the US are in their final stages – each involving 30,000 people, who will be monitored for shots, three weeks apart, and then coronovirus infections and side effects from anywhere for two years, the Associated Press Report of.
