18 (Xinhua) — U.S. President Donald Trump said Wednesday that even without a vaccine, the new coronavirus pandemic will “gradually disappear”, but researchers are close to developing a successful vaccine. “We are very close to developing a vaccine, very close to developing a cure, a very good treatment,” Mr. Trump said in a television interview Wednesday night. But even without it, I don’t even want to talk about it because it (the virus) is disappearing and it will disappear, but having a vaccine that will be very good, there will be. “
Earlier, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said the new vaccine could be available by the end of the year or in the first few months of 2021.
Mr. Trump, who has often made contradictory statements about the outbreak, said at an event on Monday that the u.S. cases are mostly tested because “if we stop testing right away, we’ll have very few cases.” “
Mr. Trump also posted On Monday: “Our tests are bigger and more advanced than any other country (we’re doing a good job of it!). ), which shows more cases. Without detection or weakening, we may hardly see a case. Detection is a double-edged sword that makes us look bad, but having detection is a good thing!!! “
