(RepublicanDaily.org) – Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, experts have argued fiercely about how soon we’re likely to see a vaccine. On Monday, November 9, we learned of perhaps the biggest breakthrough of the year in this regard.
Medical giant Pfizer released a statement containing updates about its COVID-19 research program. The company said the vaccine currently under development is over 90% effective in preventing the virus. These results, which come from tests conducted on over 40,000 subjects, make it much more likely that we’ll see a vaccine on the market in the next few months.
Donald Trump quickly took to Twitter to express his delight at this news. The report provides vindication for the president, who was widely ridiculed for suggesting a vaccine might be available before the end of this year.
STOCK MARKET UP BIG, VACCINE COMING SOON. REPORT 90% EFFECTIVE. SUCH GREAT NEWS!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 9, 2020
All partisanship aside, every American should be happy to hear this news. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a scarcely believable toll on our public health systems, our economy, and our collective will. Nobody will be sorry when it eventually becomes a thing of the past.
