Fauci told House Committee that he was “carefully optimistic” of the progress made on the coronavirus vaccine


WASHINGTON - Dr. Anthony Fauci told House MPs Tuesday that he was "cautiously optimistic" about the progress made in developing the vaccine for Kovid-19, saying a "nail in the coffin" was needed. Coronavirus pandemic.


Fauci said there are many good vaccines in development and that "otherwise" will yield positive results. He reiterated his hope that the vaccine would be available by the end of 2020 or early 2021.

Trump received new criticism after holding a campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma last week - which concerns some healthcare professionals - and he told the crowd to slow down in testing.

At the time, the White House made Fassi available to testify before the Republican-controlled Senate, but not to the Democratic-controlled House. After Fauzi was prevented from attending House lawmakers, Trump called the House a "group of Trump heaters."
