    White House coronavirus task force member Adm. Brett Giroir said Sunday that even a few million doses of a vaccine for the coronavirus would be helpful to inoculate patients and staff in nursing homes, teachers and people with pre-existing conditions. In an interview on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Giroir called a vaccine “even in a few million doses will be a godsend in terms of outcomes, hospitalizations, morbidity and death.” “If we could vaccinate workers in nursing homes, we could protect the elderly and the vulnerable from disease, that would make an enormous impact on mortalities,” he said. “If we could vaccinate our teachers and those with pre-existing conditions or those surrounding those people. I think this has been misunderstood.” Giroir also said until that time, however, people should...
    President Trump repeatedly contradicted congressional testimony from Centers for Disease Control Director Robert Redfield Wednesday, casting doubt on the expert's timing for a vaccine and on the effectiveness of masks.  In a White House press conference with reporters, Mr. Trump insisted he thought Redfield "made a mistake" when he told Congress Wednesday a vaccine wouldn't be widely available until the second or third quarter of next year. Redfield testified that a coronavirus vaccine would be "generally available to the American public" in the "late second quarter, third quarter 2021." But Mr. Trump, without stating his rationale for contradicting the CDC director, told reporters Wednesday that Redfield had erred. Get updates from the campaign trail delivered to your inbox "No,...
    CDC Director Robert Redfield has walked back his Senate testimony that masks work better against COVID-19 than vaccines, after Donald Trump called him 'confused' and 'mistaken' and dismissed his claims a vaccine will not be available until next year. Redfield told a Senate committee Wednesday 'this face mask is more guaranteed to protect me against COVID than when I take a COVID vaccine' and said a vaccine wouldn't be widely available to Americans until the second quarter of 2021.   Hours later Trump hit back at Redfield saying the CDC head was 'confused' and must have 'misunderstood' the question being asked of him. The president said he had called Redfield to set the record straight and said the CDC boss had agreed...
    Earlier Wednesday, CDC director Robert Redfield said during his congressional testimony that a coronavirus vaccine will come out “in very limited supply” in November-December and will be “generally available to the American public” by “late second quarter, third quarter 2021.” Sen. Kennedy: When do you think well have a vaccine ready for the public? CDC Dir. Redfield: Vaccine initially available in Nov.-Dec. but in “very limited supply.” If asking when is it going to be generally available to the American public, you’re looking at late Q2-Q3 2021. pic.twitter.com/AopPUTsd9K — NBC News (@NBCNews) September 16, 2020 Hours later, at President Donald Trump’s press conference, he threw the CDC chief under the bus and contradicted what he said: “I...
    The director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) told lawmakers on Wednesday that he doesn’t expect a potential COVID-19 vaccine to be available for most Americans until the middle of next year, even as the government unveiled plans to begin distributing a vaccine as soon as possible.
    A top scientist at the World Health Organization said a return to pre-coronavirus life isn’t likely to happen before 2022. “The way that people are picturing it is that in January, you have vaccines for the whole world and things will start going back to normal,” Soumya Swaminathan, WHO’S chief science officer, told the South China Morning Post. Swaminathan told the newspaper that is “not how it works.” She said, according to a realistic timeline, a vaccine will roll out mid-2021 and immunization won’t take place overnight. She said people will still have to wear masks and social distance even after a vaccine is made available.  “We need 60% to 70% of the population to have immunity before you will...
    CDC Director Dr. Robert Redfield puts his mask on after speaking to Senate Appropriations subcommittee. The common story on COVID-19 has become very, very centered around the idea that everyone just needs to park in place until a vaccine comes along to save us. But with poll after poll showing that people are unwilling to accept a vaccine rushed into production under Donald Trump, that’s simply not going to happen anytime soon. And barring some ill-considered use of emergency authorization, a vaccine is still months away in any case. But as CDC director Robert Redfield testified at a Senate hearing on Wednesday morning, there is already a solution available that can reduce the spread of COVID-19 and allow the nation...
    Virginia revenue projections for the fiscal year have remained stable since the state reforecast in light of the economic effect from the response to COVID-19, Secretary of Finance Aubrey Lane told the Senate Finance and Appropriations Committee on Tuesday. Revenue projections are about $2.5 billion below the initial projections that were calculated before the COVID-19 pandemic hit. According to Lane, the state’s recovery has been steady, and he does not expect major changes unless outside factors come into play. Economic activity likely will surge only once a vaccine is readily available and another economic decline is unlikely unless a resurgence of COVID-19 yields another shutdown, he said. “I don’t think we’re going to see much of this...
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield said Wednesday that normal, pre-pandemic life may not resume until mid- to late- 2021, when an effective COVID-19 vaccine is widely available. “If you’re asking me when is it going to be generally available to the American public so we can begin to take advantage of a vaccine to get back to our regular life, I think we’re probably looking at late second-quarter, third-quarter 2021,” Redfield said. The time frame offered by Redfield means that a return to normalcy may not come until spring 2021 at the earliest — possibly not until late summer of that year. The Department of Health and Human Services unveiled its vaccine distribution...
    Dr. Anthony Fauci laid out a prospective timeline for a coronavirus vaccine, noting that although he thinks a treatment will be available by the end of this year, life might not be normal until the end of 2021. “We need to hunker down and get through this fall and winter because it’s not going to be easy,” Fauci told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell, adding that he disagrees with President Donald Trump’s prediction that we’re facing the end of the pandemic. He added that he’s worried the U.S. is going to face a surge in cases following Labor Day weekend, similarly to how cases spiked after the Fourth of July. “When you have a baseline of infections that are 40,000 per day and you have threats...
    The chief executives of nine drugmakers working to develop coronavirus vaccines vowed on Tuesday to hold off on seeking regulatory approval until advanced clinical trials show the products are safe and effective. The unusual pledge comes as the Trump administration is pushing to release a vaccine this fall. The CEOs — who lead drugmakers AstraZeneca, BioNTech, GlaxoSmithKline, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Moderna, Novavax, Pfizer and Sanofi — said in joint statement that the safety and efficacy of vaccines are determined by government agencies such as the Food and Drug Administration. That requires data from "large, high quality clinical trials that are randomized and observer-blinded," the executives wrote. The vow comes as President Donald Trump has touted the possibility that a coronavirus vaccine may become...
    PREMIER LEAGUE clubs will agree tomorrow to allow all the top flight games this month be shown live on TV. The U-turn by the 20 clubs and League bosses follows pressure from the Government over the issue after a fan backlash prompted intervention. 1The Big Six were always in favour of allowing fans to watch more live gamesCredit: Getty Images - Getty Under initial plans, 17 of the opening 28 games - all being played behind closed doors - were due to be screened live, either by Sky Sports or BT. That would have seen 11 games not being available to fans, including all three of Newcastle’s opening fixtures. Now today’s hastily-arranged meeting of the 20 “shareholder” clubs will agree...

    CHICAGO (CBS) —  Illinois Governor JB Pritzker said despite the low rolling average of COVID-19 cases in the state, he will not allow the state to move to Phase 5 for reopening until a vaccine is available. For now, to try to stop the spread of COVID-19, Pritzker announced a new mitigation plan to prevent an uptick in cases. Illinois went into Phase 4 of the Restore Illinois plan to reduce the spread of COVID-19 throughout the state back in June. He said because of the public’s adherence to the COVID-19 rules, the state’s numbers are relatively low compared to other places. Pritzker said Illinois has the lowest infection rate compared to its neighboring states. More than two million people have...

    PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Governor Tom Wolf is sharing his concern for the rise in Coronavirus cases we are seeing here in Allegheny County. Governor Wolf is suggesting what Pennsylvanians may need to do in order to slow the spread of the virus. The Governor says we will likely be wearing masks for quite some time. He thinks the order to wear masks will be mandatory until there’s a vaccine. Governor Wolf says that data models suggest that states where people are using the masks are showing lower infection rates. He updated the order last week when cases started to spike. All this comes as Allegheny County has been in triple digits for new cases of COVID-19 every day dating back...
    President Trump on Saturday said it was 'likely' that either a vaccine or a therapeutic to treat patients infected with the coronavirus would be available ‘long before the end of the year.’ 'I want to send our thanks to the scientists and researchers around the country and even around the world who are at the forefront of our historic effort to rapidly develop and deliver life-saving treatments and ultimately a vaccine,' the president said at the second annual July 4th Salute to America event at the White House on Saturday. 'We are unleashing our nation's scientific brilliance and we'll likely have a therapeutic and/or vaccine solution long before the end of the year.' But a member of Trump's coronavirus task...

    Ford announced late last year that the Mustang Mach-E will be the company’s first car to allow hands-free driving in certain situations. Today, the company is opening up about how exactly that technology will work, but it’s also saying that the feature won’t be available until the second half of 2021. When the Mach-E goes on sale at the end of this year, buyers who want the hands-free driving mode will have to purchase what Ford’s calling the “Active 2.0 Prep Package.” This will make sure the car has the hardware (a forward-facing camera and radar sensors) that’s necessary for the hands-free driving mode, which Ford is calling “Active Drive Assist.” But the Active Drive Assist feature will require...
