In the US, doubt the success of the Russian vaccine from COVID-19

Russia, China, and other countries are unlikely to be ahead of the United States in creating a vaccine for coronavirus, said chief infectious diseases specialist Anthony Fauci.

“We are moving very quickly, I don’t think there will be vaccines so much earlier than ours that we will have to depend on other countries to get the vaccine,” Fauci said at a congressional hearing.

“I hope that the Chinese and Russians actually test the vaccine before they inject it to anyone because I think that claims that there is a vaccine ready for distribution without testing are problematic, to say the least,” the expert said. He stressed that he is ” cautiously optimistic about the possibility of getting a vaccine at the end of this year or early 2021.”

Now in the US, several private companies are creating the vaccine at once, one of them is already in the third stage of testing a coronavirus vaccine. According to Fauci at the hearing, 30 thousand people are involved in clinical trials. Another 250,000 applied to participate in the trial of the latest vaccine.
