Fauci says unlikely that COVID-19 vaccine will be ready in October

Top US infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci said it’s unlikely that a coronavirus vaccine will be available by October, but it’s not impossible

“I think most of the people feel it’s going to be November, December,” Fauci said in a CNN interview when asked about the possibility of an earlier release, adding a clinical trial could prompt drug developers to decide a vaccine works sooner. “It is conceivable that you can have it by October, though I don’t think that that’s likely.”

Earlier, the US government had asked states to get ready to distribute a potential coronavirus vaccine by November 1.
