Redfield, who is a member of Trump's coronavirus task force, did say that a vaccine could be ready as soon as this November or December, and that limited first doses could go to those who were most vulnerable, but that it might take until mid-2021 for it to be widely available.

On Wednesday, Trump disputed statements by Robert Redfield, director of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), who said earlier in the day that a vaccine would likely not be ready before the summer of 2021. Comparison website Finder.com surveyed 2,000 Americans to find out, and released their findings in a report.

"Hundreds of millions of doses will be available every month and we expect to have enough vaccines for every American by April", he said at a White House press briefing.

"I would tell you if I were a betting man I would bet on President Trump based on what I know behind the scenes about how quickly we are moving on the clinical trials", Meadows said. "And if I don't get an immune response, the vaccine is not going to protect me". He said he called Redfield after his testimony to question him about it, and that Redfield appeared to have been confused by the question.

He said distribution of a vaccine will begin within 24 hours of it being approved by federal health regulators. "I've said it, if we did it for 6, 8, 10, 12 weeks, we'd bring this pandemic under control". Moderna on Friday said it is on track to make around 20 million doses by the end of the year and between 500 million and 1 billion doses a year beginning in 2021.

Premarket: Why are stocks dropping? Hint: Jerome Powell is involved
The central bank now expects a median unemployment rate of 7.6% this year, down from the 9.3% expected in June. The Federal Open Market Committee will release its policy statement and economic projections at 2 p.m.

Late second quarter would be sometime next June, so he's saying that members of the general public don't get a vaccine for at least eight months.

"The Department of Health and Human Services did the rewriting and then "dropped" it into the CDC's public website, flouting the agency's strict scientific review process", the newspaper said. It is not clear whether Trump's promise to have enough vaccine for all 330 million Americans by April means that the government will have enough vaccine to give each person the first of two shots, or the full two-shot vaccination.

Also Wednesday, the US government released a sweeping plan to make vaccines for the coronavirus available for free to all Americans, assuming a safe and effective shot is developed.

Trump, who has painted a rosy picture of the pandemic that has killed almost 200,000 Americans, disputed what Redfield said.
