Fauci: COVID-19 vaccine a matter of ‘when not if’

Top US infectious disease expert Anthony Fauci said he believed “it will be when and not if” there will be a COVID-19 vaccine, expressing cautious optimism some will be ready by the end of the year.

Speaking to a House committee, Fauci added that neither he nor any members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force have been asked to slow down testing.

The comments came after President Donald Trump said at a weekend political rally in Oklahoma that he had asked his aides to reduce testing because it was turning up too many positive cases.
