Pence says coronavirus treatment may be available by summer

UNITED STATES (OBSERVATORY NEWS) — New drugs to help the infected coronavirus may be available in the US in summer or early fall. This was announced on Monday at a briefing for journalists in the White House by United States Vice President Michael Pence.

According to him, “many [pharmaceutical] companies are already starting to work” on the creation of a vaccine, and clinical trials may begin in the next six weeks.

“The tests are inherently such that, as the experts explained to us, the vaccine may not be available until the end of this year or the beginning of the next. However, medications that can improve the condition of people who have been infected with coronavirus can become available literally this summer or in early fall,” he said.

Pence also said US pharmaceutical companies have formed a consortium to “collaborate and share information to develop drugs and vaccines.”
