Washington DC – New cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) are being reported daily in the United States of America. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recommends people who have mild versions of it to stay at home to ensure not infecting others and to follow “everyday preventative actions” like avoiding close contact and washing hands appropriately.
President Trump is taking bold action in confronting coronavirus. He consistently states progress is being made and a coronavirus vaccine will be coming soon. Health officials, however, point out human trials may begin shortly, but a functional vaccine will take longer. CNN reports:
But Dr. Antony Fauci, the head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, immediately corrected the President: “Let me make sure you get the … information. A vaccine that you make and start testing in a year is not a vaccine that’s deployable.”
A Trade Deal AND A Way To Speed Up Clinical Trials
The United States and the Chinese government do not see eye to eye on many issues. The US charges the Chinese steal sensitive technology and disregard copyrights. The Chinese government considers it quaint how Washington pays lip service to Democratic principles.
In a bold move, President Trump and the government in Beijing agreed to a historic agreement. Dubbed Human Guinea Pigs For Science And Trade by critics the two nations put aside their quarrels about trade and focused on testing potentially dangerous medicine on millions of Chinese citizens.
President Trump tweeted about the great leap forward in combatting COVID-19 today.
China has many people. We have science facts. Together we will discover a cure for coronavirus. Speedy trials done in China will keep America healthy AND GREAT!One White House staffer commented Americans can’t even find China on a map. Will they really care if a few hundred thousand die to make sure they don’t get the sniffles?
Democrats aren’t sure how to respond. Most lawmakers believe they should hold a House subcommittee meeting until Trump’s crazy plan blows up in his face or works. One anonymous politician shrugged his shoulders and said, “That’s just how politics works.”
