Trump Boasts About Progress Toward a Coronavirus Vaccine
During a visit to a North Carolina biotechnology lab, President Trump urged Americans to practice social distancing, and said there had been “tremendous” progress toward developing a vaccine.
I trust all Americans to do the right thing. But we strongly advise everyone to especially, especially focus on maintaining a social distance, maintaining rigorous hygiene, avoid large gatherings in crowded indoor bars and wear masks when appropriate. We also strongly urge citizens to take extra precautions to shield those at highest risk, which are in most cases, in many cases, the elderly — especially the elderly with medical problems such as heart or diabetes. Just before I left the White House, in the Oval Office we had a meeting with our doctors, scientists some others. And they’re making tremendous progress with respect to therapeutics. I can tell you, therapeutically, I think over the next couple of weeks, we’ll have some really very good things to say. We’re just having great answers. So it is about that. And it’s also the vaccine that we discussed today at even greater length, is just coming along really well.
