Bloomberg QuickTake News published this video item, entitled “Trump Says Redfield ‘Mistaken’ That Masks Offer More Protection Than Vaccines” – below is their description.
President Donald Trump unveiled his plan for a vaccine distribution despite the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention saying it may not be widely available until the middle of 2021. “We’re on track to deliver and distribute the vaccine in a very, very safe and effective manner,” said Trump. “We think we can start sometime in October. So as soon as it is announced, we’ll be able to start. That will be from mid-October on may be a little bit later than that, but we’ll be all set. So as soon as it’s given the go ahead.” Trumps comments came Wednesday during a White House press briefing. This comes son the same day CDC Director Robert Redfield said any vaccine available in November or December would be in “very limited supply,” and reserved for first responders and people most vulnerable to COVID-19. The shot wouldn’t be broadly available until the spring or summer of 2021, he estimated. Redfield and other health officials testifying before the Senate Appropriations Committee also emphasized the effectiveness of masks in stopping the pandemic’s spread, given that no vaccine is 100% protective. The flu vaccine, for example, is generally about 40% to 60% effective against the annual viral strain. Trump also called out his rival Joe Biden for saying while he trusts what scientists say about a potential coronavirus vaccine, he doesn’t trust the president. Trump said BIden is promoting anti-vaccination theories. hey recklessly endangering lives. You can’t do that,” said Trump. “This is really a case that they’re only talking to just started talking a little bit negatively, and that’s only because they know we have it or we will soon have it. And the answer to that is very soon.” The president also talked about Hurricane Sally that made landfall near the Florida-Alabama line Wednesday with 105 mph (165 kph) winds and rain measured in feet, not inches.Bloomberg QuickTake News YouTube Channel
