HHS Secretary says COVID-19 vaccine, treatment may be ‘weeks away’

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “HHS Secretary says COVID-19 vaccine, treatment may be ‘weeks away’”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Health and Human Services Director Alex Azar said Sunday that antibody treatments and vaccines for the coronavirus could be just “weeks away.”

“Hang in there with us. We are so close,” Azar told NBC’s “Meet the Press” as he warned of “mitigation fatigue” from “tired” Americans giving up on safety measures.

“We are weeks away from monoclonal antibodies for you, for safe and effective vaccines,” he said, urging viewers to help “bridge the gap” by maintaining mask-wearing and social distancing until then.

“The American people have given so much,” he told host Chuck Todd. “They’ve been locked down. They’ve been isolated and they’re tired. But the point is we’re so close.”

Azar said the US was on track to get “safe therapeutics and safe vaccines in historic record time.”
