Trump says he's mobilizing military to distribute potential coronavirus vaccine

Trump says he's mobilizing military to distribute potential coronavirus vaccine”

Speaking to reporters in the White House Rose Garden on Friday, Trump unveiled "Operation Warp Speed", a public-private partnership aimed at accelerating the development of a vaccine for Covid-19, the deadly virus that has infected more than 4.5 million people worldwide and killed more than 300,000.

Slaoui sits on the board of Moderna, a USA company that's testing a CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus vaccine candidate it developed.

Sanofi is working on two vaccines projects, one with British rival GlaxoSmithKline Plc that has received financial support from the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) of the U.S. Health Department, and another with U.S. company Translate Bio that will use different technology.

The initiative is being promoted by White House senior advisor Jared Kushner, and involves officials from the Defense Department and the Department of Health and Human Services. Other health agencies like the National Institutes of Health are involved.

"Other things have never had a vaccine and they go away".

With Operation Warp Speed, President Trump is trying to push the development of a vaccine sooner than the 12-18 month timeframe. "We will be saving years if we do this properly".

President Donald Trump said Friday that he's hopeful to have a coronavirus vaccine on the market by the end of the year or shortly thereafter.

"The objectives of Operation Warp Speed are very clear", Slaoui said, adding that they are "very credible" but "extremely challenging".

Moncef Slaoui said he is honored to serve his country as a member of Operation Warp Speed. He added that, vaccine or no vaccine, America will reopen.

Teams across the world are racing to develop vaccines that can prevent infection by the CCP virus, which emerged in China past year.

He expressed hope for the team to find a cure for the virus before the end of the year, adding that the U.S. is working with several countries and "great scientists" to develop a vaccine.

Pennsylvania-based Inovio Pharmaceuticals completed phase one dosing in April and is planning to launch a phase two/phase three trial later this year while initiating additional phase one trials in China and South Korea this summer.

"If you had a vaccine that only worked for 20-year-olds and didn't work for 70-year-olds, that would not be a success", he said.

Trump had said the review would cover the WHO's "role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of coronavirus".
