Dr. Anthony Fauci, a top U.S. infectious disease expert, believes an effective new vaccine will be approved by the end of 2020,media BGR reported. Mr. Fauci recently said tens of millions of doses of THE COVID-19 vaccine could be ready in the U.S. by early 2021. Fauci added that there could be 1 billion doses of vaccine by 2022.
Some homeowners in the Los Angeles area have recently come under fire for hosting frenzied summer parties in the past few weeks, a fact that is all the more alarming given the surge in new crowns across California. In fact, the problem with large gatherings became so obvious that Los Angeles Mayor Eric Gashiti said this week that the city would cut off water and power to rooms where big parties are held.
“Although we’ve closed all our bars and nightclubs,” Gashiti said, “these big family gatherings have basically become nightclubs.” You’re breaking the law. Just as we can close bars in places that violate alcohol laws, we can close the houses. “
Media believe that the development situated that some Americans are not complying with the new crown safety guidelines, such as maintaining social distance and wearing masks. So it has become clear in recent weeks that the best way for the United States to beat the new crown virus now is through vaccinations. And the resulting two-part question is simple: When can you expect a vaccine to arrive and how to quickly apply it to the general public?
The good news is that early clinical trials of potential new candidate vaccines are encouraging. Novavax announced Wednesday that one of its candidate vaccines has yielded encouraging results in phase I trials. Meanwhile, Moderna expects the recruitment process for the phase 3 trial of its new vaccine candidate to be completed sometime next month.
Still, Dr. Anthony Fauci is optimistic in a recent interview that the new vaccine will be approved by the end of 2020.
Once approved, Fauci believes the U.S. could have 1 billion doses of vaccine ready by 2021 and hopes to have tens of millions of doses by earlier this year.
These goals are achievable because drugmakers have agreed to produce large quantities of vaccines, even before they know if they are effective, to save time.
“The federal government is not putting all its resources into one vaccine,” Fauci said. “
