President Donald Trump said on Friday that the US has already produced two million vaccine doses for the coronavirus disease (Covid-19) that are “ready to go” if they “check out for safety”.
“We had a meeting on vaccines yesterday. We are doing incredibly well. We can have some very positive surprises. Tremendous progress is being made on vaccines,” Trump said during a news conference from the White House.
“In fact, we are ready to go in terms of transportation and logistics. We have over two million ready to go if it checks out for safety.”
Trump also said “likewise, we are doing very well with therapeutics. Cures we are doing well.”
According to The New York Times, the Trump administration has selected five companies as the most likely candidates to produce a vaccine for the coronavirus disease.
“And the nice part is that four companies, you could even say seven or eight companies, that are doing some very similar and some very different on the vaccine front. And, some similar and somewhat different on the therapeutic front,” he said.
