The White House announced in a tweet that a press conference for President Donald Trump will be held today, Sunday, regarding a therapeutic breakthrough for the emerging corona virus.
The White House press secretary said that the Trump conference will be at 6 p.m. and will be attended by doctors associated with the file.
This is the first time the White House has announced a “breakthrough”, which may mean reaching a successful treatment for the virus that has paralyzed the world since the beginning of this year.
President Trump had earlier accused some bodies, led by the Food and Drug Organization, of delaying the conduct of Corona vaccine tests until after the elections.
He said in a tweet that these authorities make it difficult for pharmaceutical companies to obtain human samples to test for coronavirus vaccines.
Trump wrote that the deep state or “whatever” in the Food and Drug Administration is making it extremely difficult for drug manufacturers to register people who undergo clinical trials to test coronavirus vaccines .
This statement comes after “Reuters” exclusively quoted a senior official in the Food and Drug Administration as saying that he would resign from his post if the US administration authorized the use of a vaccine before it was proven safe and effective.
“It is clear that they are trying to delay the response until after the third of November. The priority must now be on pace and saving lives,” Trump said, referring to his letter to Stephen Hahn, the Commissioner for the Food and Drug Administration.
For her part, Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, said that this was a “dangerous accusation” and that the President “went beyond the boundaries” by accusing the Food and Drug Administration of playing a political game.
Pharmaceutical firms, in collaboration with the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health, are increasing development during testing in order to manufacture the vaccine for Covid-19 disease, which killed nearly 800,000 people worldwide, as soon as possible.
