President Donald trump said that he “firmly believes“that by the end of the year will create a vaccine against coronavirus.
Sunday, may 3, in the evening, the American leader said in an interview with Fox News that the vaccine is not far off, Covid-19 — the wines of China, and the economy will not only recover, but also “grow like crazy“.
“I believe that we will have a vaccine by year-end, — said trump reporters Fox News. — We will create a vaccination sooner rather than later“.
Scientists have repeatedly warned that development of vaccines may take 12-18 months or more.
In April, trump announced that he would be killed 60,000 Americans, but on Sunday, he called the new figures: “We will lose from 75, 80 to 100 000 people. That’s horrible.”
To the question why he had not previously taken in connection with the epidemic, the President said that in January he said that “there may come a virus, but it has no real meaning“.
“In other words, it wasn’t “Oh, we need to do something, we need something to do.” It was a short conversation“, — said trump.
His comments came amid reports that U.S. officials believe that China deliberately hiding the scale and severity of the virus while simultaneously increasing import and decreasing export of medical supplies.
