US President Donald Trump, speaking to supporters in North Carolina, said the coronavirus could be eradicated regardless of whether the United States had a vaccine.
According to him, the coronavirus pandemic will end faster than people think, and this will happen with and without vaccines. Trump said this is already happening.
The President also recalled that the final phase of the coronavirus vaccine trial is underway in the United States and said that the drug may appear before the end of 2020, writes RIA Novosti.
Earlier on August 24, it was reported that patients with coronavirus infection in the United States will be treated with blood plasma transfusions from patients who have recovered from the disease.
On August 22, an American virologist said that high population mobility and weak quarantine measures contributed to the widespread spread of COVID-19 in the country. At the same time, the specialist denied reports that the second wave of coronavirus would come in the United States.
The United States ranks first in the world for the number of people infected with COVID-19.
According to Worldometer data, as of August 25, more than 5.9 million cases of infection were detected in the country, of which over 181 thousand were fatal. Since the beginning of the pandemic, more than 3.2 million coronavirus patients have recovered in the country.
