'Help is on the way': 20 million Americans will receive the COVID-19 vaccine by the end of the year
On Sunday, November 29, two leading experts in the fight against COVID-19 in the United States announced that a vaccine for the disease will soon be available to Americans. They also stressed that you should not forget to comply with safety measures, otherwise it can lead to disastrous consequences. Writes about it "Voice of America".
“We must have enough vaccine by the end of the year to immunize 20 million Americans,” said Admiral Brett Girouar, who leads the testing program. "However," he stressed, "Americans must behave well until the vaccine becomes widely available."
Girouar highlighted two promising vaccines that are currently under review by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), calling them "lifesaving."
“This will put an end to the pandemic,” Girouar said. Until then, however, he stressed, it is necessary to take precautions - in particular, wear masks and avoid crowded premises.
He also said he was convinced that there would be a "smooth, professional transition" from the administration of President Donald Trump to the administration of President-elect Joe Biden on the issue of vaccine distribution.
US chief infectious disease specialist Dr. Anthony Fauci said: "Help is on the way." He also stressed that the first deliveries of the vaccine can be expected by mid-December.
Fauci said health experts are sympathetic to the fatigue of Americans about taking precautions to avoid getting infected. At the same time, he noted that wearing masks and social distancing are very important.
Millions of Americans have significantly scaled down their traditional family celebrations on Thanksgiving, but millions more ignored medical experts' warnings by visiting family members far away.
Fauci stressed that violations of social distancing are fraught with serious dangers.

The country's leading epidemiologist has called on state and municipal officials to “close bars without closing schools” to keep the spread of the virus low.
According to him, it is not schools that contribute to the spread of infection, but bars and restaurants, where people sit inside without masks, are dangerous.
More than 91 people infected with COVID-000 are currently hospitalized in the US, and over 19 are in intensive care units.
