The latest on the coronavirus pandemic

US states told be ready to distribute Covid-19 vaccine by Nov 1 US CDC tells states to prep for Covid-19 vaccine distribution as soon as late October

The documents were first published by the New York Times.

That request, as well as the three planning documents, are the latest indication that the race for a vaccine may be picking up speed.

The Japanese government may offer Covid-19 vaccinations for free to all residents so that the number of future fatalities and those developing severe symptoms and needing hospitalisation can be mitigated, sources with knowledge of the matter said Wednesday. Three Western drug makers are progressing with their Phase 3 clinical trials, involving tens of thousands of participants.

He said insufficient testing could have adverse effects on public health as well as the public's trust in a vaccine.

It comes after the CDC last week attributed 6 per cent (approximately 9,000) of the 183,500 COVID-19 deaths to the coronavirus alone.

For planning purposes, it includes assumptions about how many doses will be available each month, how they should be distributed, stored and handled, and which populations will be prioritized for vaccination.

"For the goal of initial planning, CDC provided states with certain planning assumptions as they work on state specific plans for vaccine distribution, including possibly having limited quantities of vaccines in October and November", a CDC spokeswoman told Reuters. Tesla is helping to build mobile molecule printers to make the potential COVID-19 vaccine under development by CureVac.

"The COVID-19 vaccine landscape is evolving and uncertain, and these scenarios may evolve as more information is available", one of the scenario documents advises.

The US Food and Drug Administration has raised the possibility that a vaccine might be given emergency approval before the end of trials created to ensure its safety and effectiveness.

Just days earlier, Hahn publicly apologized for making misleading claims about the efficacy of convalescent plasma as a treatment for COVID-19.

The timing of a vaccine has taken on political importance as U.S. President Donald Trump seeks re-election in November, after committing billions of federal dollars to develop a vaccine to prevent COVID-19, which has killed more than 180,000 Americans.
