U.S. says it will be ready for vaccine distribution by November

U.S. says it will be ready for vaccine distribution by November

"Four of the trials will fail, and all subjects in those trials are offered access to an approved vaccine", the draft report suggested, adding that three of the trials will be successful, while under a 1:1 ratio between members of treatment groups compared with the placebo group, 15,000 participants from each of those vaccine trials assigned to the placebo condition will be given the approved vaccine.

The AP report said while the US has committed more than $10 billion to developing new coronavirus vaccines, no money has specifically been allocated for distributing and administering the vaccines. 'I believe that by the time we get to the end of this calendar year, that we will feel comfortable that we do have a safe and effective vaccine, ' Fauci said on NBC's Today Show.

The CDC documents describe two potential vaccine options, which match the profiles of candidates from Pfizer and Moderna.

The United States announced its plan to leave the World Health Organization after President Donald Trump accused the organisation of becoming a puppet for China during the coronavirus pandemic.

"We have detailed the reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly, but they have refused to act", Trump said at the time. The WHO has rejected Mr Trump's assertion.

Under a 1948 joint resolution of Congress, the USA had to give one-year notice of withdrawal from the World Health Organization and is required to pay its dues for the organisation's current fiscal year.

A federal official familiar with the plans said that the November 1 date is for planning only, and wasn't meant to influence the presidential election.

Health departments, however, said they lack the staff, money and tools to educate people about vaccines and then to distribute, administer and track hundreds of millions of doses, according to the AP.

Britain is looking to develop tests which do not need to be read in a lab, giving results in a matter of minutes, rather than the current next-day target.

The country, however, has recently seen a resurgence in cases with more than 100 new cases reported daily for 20 consecutive days, compared with double-digit figures for months after the new coronavirus outbreak peaked at 909 in late February.

Fewer than 10 intensive-care beds were available in the greater Seoul area, a metropolis of 26 million people, as of Tuesday, health authorities said.
