As America works to stop the spread of coronavirus, treatments and vaccines are being viewed as options. However, some people have had success with the anti-malaria drug known as hydroxychloroquine. Despite Democrats’ attacks on Trump for promoting this drug, there are cases where hydroxychloroquine is affirmatively linked to the alleviation of COVID-19.
Yesterday, President Trump sat down for an interview to discuss developments in the fight against coronavirus. As such, Trump maintains that a vaccine for coronavirus will arrive before 2020 comes to an end, reports Breitbart News.
Trump on the Possibility of a Coronavirus Vaccination
During his time with Fox News, the president stated that a vaccination for COVID-19 will come “by the end of this year.” However, Trump also pointed out that until a vaccine is available, remdesivir can be used to treat the virus in the meantime.

Additionally came the president’s note that while the rapid production of remdesivir is challenging, there is work to increase its availability as soon as possible. Later in the interview, Trump also spoke about hydroxychloroquine, stating that he’s received recent calls in prior days alleging that the anti-malaria drug treated COVID-19 in some cases.
Finally, the president stated that American deaths caused by coronavirus are likely to reach the ranks of 80,000 or 90,000 rather than the previously projected range of 65,000.
More on a Vaccine for Coronavirus
The president’s predictions about a vaccine are consistent with remarks from doctors on his coronavirus task force. Last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci stated that a vaccination for COVID-19 could become available by January of next year. However, other doctors have projected that 12-18 months may be necessary before the production of a vaccine.
