Trump says coronavirus will 'go away without a vaccine'

    President Trump broke with health experts on Friday, telling reporters that the coronavirus will "go away without a vaccine." "This will go away without a vaccine, it will go away and we won't see it again, hopefully, for a while," Trump said at the White House. "You might have some flare-ups, and I think I'd expect that." Just days ago, the Trump administration launched Operation Warp Speed, an initiative to speed up the development of a coronavirus vaccine that had infected at least 1.2 million Americans and killed over 76,000 here on Friday.   


    Dr Anthony Fauci, the coronavirus task force's leading authority on infectious diseases, has consistently warned that a vaccine is not available to the public for at least a year to 18 months. 

    In an interview with Fox News last week, Fauci said the epidemic of coronavirus was "not going to be over until we can do no prevention before we have a scientifically based, safe and efficient vaccine." Asked what led him to believe that the virus would vanish without a vaccine, Trump said that he had obtained the information from medical professionals.     

    "I am dependent on what the doctors are saying. They say he's going to go. This year it doesn't say. It doesn't say, honestly, it's going to be gone before the fall or after the fall but it's going to go away eventually. The question is: do we need a vaccine? It probably would go away by itself at some point. "Asked how much he met with Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx, who also serves on the task force on coronavirus, Trump responded," A lot. Much. "Birx said last week that the government's renewed focus on creating a vaccine could help produce one as early as January.   
    "The way it's possible is if you put out five or six separate candidate grades, which Operation Warp Speed did," Birx said in an interview with Fox News. "And so they don't depend on a single set of vaccines. This depends on a variety of different candidates rendered differently and behaving differently.'
