US unlikely to use any COVID-19 vaccine developed by China, Russia

National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases Director Dr. Anthony Fauci participates in a roundtable with U.S. President Donald Trump on donating plasma during a visit to the American Red Cross National Headquarters in Washington U.S. July 30

Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious diseases expert, said on Friday he's "cautiously optimistic" that a safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine will be ready for distribution in early 2021.

For example, she said "Operation Warp Speed", the Trump administration's name for the push to deliver an effective COVID-19 vaccine by early 2021, sends the wrong message. "As effective covid-19 vaccines emerge from our research effort, this manufacturing capability is going to be very important", Fauci said at the global symposium on vaccines against the covid-19 pandemic, hosted by the Indian Council of Medical Research (ICMR).

"And when we opened up the country, what we saw, particularly most recently, in the southern states, was an increase of cases to 20, 30, 40, 50 [thousand] and a couple of weeks ago, it was up to 70,000 per day and now it's down between 50 and 60", Fauci told the House Select Committee on the Coronavirus Crisis.

Fauci went on to say that he was "actively involved" in the administration's decision to restrict air travel to the USA from Europe, and repeated, "Yes, I do" when Scalise asked if he agreed with the move and if he believed it saved American lives. He first pointed out that many European countries locked down more wholly than the US.

"Somebody please tell Congressman Clyburn, who doesn't have a clue, that the chart he put up indicating more CASES for the USA than Europe, is because we do MUCH MORE testing than any other country in the World", Trump wrote.

The United States has recorded almost 1.8 million new COVID-19 cases in July out of its total 4.5 million known infections, an increase of 66% with many states yet to report on Friday.

"If we had no testing, or bad testing, we would show very few CASES.", he tweeted at the onset of the hearing. Jordan asked. When Fauci said he was not in a position to make such a recommendation, the lawmaker retorted: "You make all kinds of recommendations. I'm telling you what it is - the danger - and you can make your own conclusion about that".

"I don't judge one crowd versus another crowd", he said. "You just said protests increase the spread, should we try to limit the protests?" He asked Fauci whether the protests are spreading coronavirus. "I have to go with the data". "You should stay away from crowds, no matter where the crowds are".

"You wouldn't even be here today if there wasn't a plan", he told the witness panel, which also included U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Dr. Robert Redfield and Admiral Brett Giroir, assistant secretary at the Department of Health and Human Services.

In testimony with Rep. Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., Fauci said he thought an effective coronavirus vaccine "will be shown to be a reality".

Carlson credited Jordan for the exchange and said, "There is nothing Dr. Anthony Fauci won't opine on as long as it doesn't offend the popular and fashionable left".

"Crowding together, particularly when you're not wearing a mask, contributes to the spread of the virus".
