Based on the US CNBC and “Russia today” news, trump said at the White House press conference on the 14th local time that he hoped that Russia’s new crown vaccine “satellite-v” could be effective, and that the United States would soon launch its own vaccine after a long-term test.
at the White House news release on the 14th, when asked how to view Russia’s world’s first successfully registered new coronavirus vaccine, trump said: “we don’t know much about it. We hope it can work and succeed.” He then added that good news may soon be shared in the United States, and that the US vaccine may be approved for marketing by the end of the year. Vaccines in the United States will take longer because of a longer and more systematic trial process.
as for who will be vaccinated in the United States first, trump said that elderly people living in nursing homes or retirement communities may be vaccinated in advance. When he realized that he was among them, he added that he was either the first or the last.
Russian media said that although Russia announced the successful registration of the world’s first new crown vaccine, satellite-v will continue to carry out trials involving thousands of people in Russia and abroad. Russian President Vladimir Putin has revealed that one of his daughters has been vaccinated with the vaccine. At present, about 20 countries are already waiting in line to be vaccinated with satellite-v or to cooperate in production and distribution.
many scientists and public health officials have raised doubts about Russia’s new crown vaccine, believing that it needs to be tested strictly to determine its safety. They even worry that Russia’s new coronal vaccine may put pressure on the United States to approve the vaccine ahead of time when it is not ready.
