The FDA chief’s statement comes at a time when a week earlier, President Donald Trump has criticized his modus operandi of approving pharmaceutical companies for the vaccine trial. Trump had alleged that the FDA was delaying approval to influence his election. Han dismissed the charge, saying such decisions not influenced by politics.

President Trump also says that the Corona virus vaccine will come to the US this year. Trial of three Corona vaccines is going on in the US. All are in their third and final stage trials. Trump said that the United States is already producing these vaccines so that their doses are readily available to the public. Trump had said in the past that we will crush this virus.
