Fauci "Cautiously Optimistic" for COVID Vaccine; Tells Congress US May Have Vaccine by 2020 End

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the United States' top expert on infectious diseases, expressed "cautious" optimism in Congress today (July 31, 2020) that a safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19 will be available this fall or early winter, according to the UPI website.

Fauci testified in the U.S. House of Representatives that a vaccine could be developed by the end of this year.

Fauci cited a 30,000-patient clinical trial by Moderna that began July 27.

"We are cautiously optimistic that this will be successful," he said of Moderna's trial vaccine.
