One of President’s Trump’s top advisors on COVID-19 is hopeful that you can return to ‘normal” as early as May. The doctor expresses current plans to ship the coronavirus vaccine as by middle December.
“Our plan is to be able to ship vaccines to the immunization sites within 24 hours from the approval, so I expect maybe on day two after approval on the 11th or the 12th of December,” Dr. Moncef Slaoui told CNN.
He also predicted that life could start returning to normal by mid-2021, noting that “70 percent or so of the population being immunized would allow for true herd immunity to take place.”
“That is likely to happen in the month of May or something like that, based on our plans,” Slaoui said. “I really hope and look forward to seeing that the level of negative perception of the vaccine decreases and peoples’ acceptance increases. That is going to be critical to help us. Most people need to be immunized before we can go back to a normal life.”
