Former FDA commissioner: China may get to a vaccine first

The former FDA commissioner, Scott Gottlieb, predicts that the US may have a few treatments for COVID-19 ready in the fall, but says China may have a vaccine available before the US. ’There’s a risk that China may get to a vaccine first,’ he said, adding, ’I don’t think their Adenoviral vector vaccine is very good, but they may get it to the market before we do. I think that is a concern.’
