Coronavirus (966) US says it won’t join effort to develop, distribute coronavirus vaccine

2 September, 2020

'More than 170 countries are in talks to work together to speed vaccine development and equitably secure doses for all countries. The Trump administration said it will not join the effort, in part because the World Health Organization is involved. The decision reflects the administration's bet that the United States will win the vaccine race, and eliminates the chance to secure doses from a pool of other promising vaccine candidates.'

Best wishes, Neil
