President Donald Trump expects a vaccine for the coronavirus to arrive this fall, seemingly relying a timeline that’s much faster than what many experts say is possible.
Trump has told both his advisers and his allies that he expects this timeline for the vaccine’s arrival, according to a report from Politico’s Nancy Cook and Gabby Orr.
Vaccine makers around the world are attempting to create a vaccine against COVID-19 at an unprecedented pace.
They hope that, once administered widely enough, it would allow life in much of the world to return to normal.
It is not clear what stage of vaccine production Trump means by “arrive,” but fall 2020 is optimistic for even the more preliminary steps along the road to having a workable vaccine.
