China rejects accusations of hacking US vaccine developer moderna

It further states, "the high-income countries could act as an inclusive global buyers' group, thus accelerating the development of safe and effective vaccines and maximise access to them for all who need it across the world".

It comes under the Trump administration's Operation Warp Speed, meant to rush a COVID-19 vaccine to the market by the end of 2020.

On Friday, the leading infectious disease expert in the US, Dr Anthony Fauci, said he hoped that Russian Federation - and China - were "actually testing the vaccine" before administering them to anyone.

The US government will provide drugmakers GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Sanofi $2.1 billion for the production of COVID-19 vaccines for up to 50 million people, the companies announced Friday.

So a recent announcement by China - that it was extending loans to Latin America - mainly so countries there would be able to purchase vaccines, was met with much gratitude.

Health officials said the vaccine data would become available for review and publication early next month.

"As I see it, and as global survey show, no vaccine [for the novel coronavirus] will hit the market by the end of 2020", she said.

"What that does, I think, is automatically raise a concern by many that, you know, we have Dr. Fauci and others who know vaccine research saying typically it takes years", she said.

A day earlier, the USA posted a record second-quarter GDP drop of 9.5 percent.

Boosting American confidence in vaccines starts with educating the public about the vaccine trial processes, Quinn said - a handful of which are well underway.

Of these, some few have entered clinical trials.

But since July daily cases have risen to record highs, partly brought in by the tens of thousands of people who were exempted from a mandatory quarantine imposed on most arrivals.

Also on Friday, the European Union said it was working on a deal with Sanofi to buy up to 300 million doses of potential vaccines to distribute to citizens in its 27 member countries.

Another way to fix public trust, Quinn said, is to launch robust public outreach efforts that encourages communities to ask: "What are your questions about the vaccine?" Instead, a trial was conducted later for just this group so that the vaccine would be approved by regulators for such people, which was crucial for most insurers to cover its cost.

"I do not believe that there will be vaccines so far ahead of us that we will have to depend on other countries to get us vaccines", he told U.S. lawmakers.
