“Covid-19 Pandemic Updates AM 9/3/20″

1. C.D.C. prepares for a fall vaccine: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has notified public health officials to prepare to distribute a coronavirus vaccine as early as October or November. The first doses would be offered to doctors and nurses and other high-risk populations. Some health experts are worried about the timing: It could be a sign that the Trump administration is pressuring the Food and Drug Administration to approve one or more vaccines before the November election, and before clinical trials are completed.
2. A success story tries to remain so: South Korea continues to have one of the most effective responses to the virus of any country, with only 326 deaths in a population of 52 million people. But it also highlights that countries cannot declare victory against the virus until there is a vaccine. Recent outbreaks – at churches, anti-government protests and elsewhere – have led to a tenfold increase in new cases over the past month. Now Korean officials are trying to prevent the recent outbreaks, which are still small relative to those in many other countries, from spreading. “We are at crossroads,” Jung Eun-kyeong, the director of the Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said yesterday.
