Dr. Anthony Fauci, the country’s leading expert on infectious diseases, recently stated that he believes a vaccine for the coronavirus will be fully tested, prepared, and effective to use by the end of the year.
Whether or not folks on the left want to hear this is another story. If you look at the major breakthroughs that have happened lately in regard to the virus, it seems as if Democrats actually want this pandemic and the restrictions with it, to stick around for a lot longer. This probably has something to do with the presidential election in November.

“I would still put my money on November, December,” Fauci said at a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute panel, CNN reported.
Fauci, an immunologist and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases who serves on the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said testing a vaccine requires about 150 subjects to actually get the virus.Trending:
“Right now, the trials are over two thirds enrolled – really close to full enrollment on one, and over full enrollment on the other,” he said. “It really depends on where the sites are and how many infections there are in a site. So you could get your answer sooner, or you can get your answer a bit later.”
“Fauci said his projection of November or December is informed by calculations based on where the clinical trial sites are in their studies,” CNN said in its report.
President Trump stated earlier in the week that new plans are underway from the Department of Defense working in tandem with health agencies, to ensure that every single American can get the vaccine for free, once it is approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
Agencies in the government are eyeing January as the target date to get the vaccination campaign rolling.
