t be widely available:

    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,...
    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — In the battle against COVID-19, some companies are getting closer to true at-home testing. It’s what experts say is a critical weapon against the pandemic. CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez has this update in his latest Max Minute report. For any coronavirus testing to be useful, it must be widely available, affordable and fast. Results that take days or weeks to come back as has happened in the past, are virtually useless to help control the virus. Too much spread or new infection can happen in that time. That’s why numerous companies are focusing on rapid, at-home testing.

    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.
    Dr. Anthony Fauci is one of those recommending a hold on offering convalescent plasma outside ongoing studies. Since the first patients began to recover from COVID-19, there have been tests in the use of blood plasma from those recovering patients as a means of treating those still fighting through the disease. However, even as some classes of steroids, anti-viral drugs, and simple procedural changes have demonstrated effectiveness in reducing the severity of COVID-19 in hospitalized patients, there has been relatively little news about convalescent plasma. Despite this, the practice has become widespread and multiple studies around the globe have enrolled tens of thousands of patients. Now the first results from the largest study in the United States have become available, and...
    A coronavirus vaccine could be widely available to much of the American public as early as April of next year, Operation Warp Speed chief Dr Moncef Slaoui told Business Insider in an exclusive interview.  His program aims to have a shot anytime between then and June, which Dr Slaoui believes will make it possible to life to return to some semblance of normality by the second half of next year.  Data on whether or not the six leading vaccine candidates appear to work should be available by the end of the year, he said.  Of course, Dr Slaoui has skin in the game. A former executive at GlaxoSmithKline (GSK), which is making working on one of the vaccines, Dr Slaoui...
    By RICARDO ALONSO-ZALDIVAR and MATTHEW PERRONE WASHINGTON (AP) — Once a coronavirus vaccine is approved as safe and effective, Americans should have widespread access within a reasonable time, Dr. Anthony Fauci assured lawmakers Friday. Appearing before a House panel investigating the nation’s response to the pandemic, Fauci expressed “cautious” optimism that a vaccine would be available, particularly by next year. “I believe, ultimately, over a period of time in 2021, that Americans will be able to get it,” Fauci said, referring to the vaccine. There will be a priority list for who gets early vaccinations. “I don’t think we will have everybody getting it immediately,” Fauci explained. But “ultimately, within a reasonable time, the plans allow for any American who...
