New York to conduct own review of coronavirus vaccine approved by Donald Trump

News New York to conduct own review of coronavirus vaccine approved by Donald...

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said on Thursday screening of 3,000 people found nearly 14% tested positive for antibodies for the novel coronavirus, suggesting that 2.7 million residents across the state may have been infected with the disease.

New York State will conduct its own review of any coronavirus vaccine endorsed by the White House amid concerns that President Donald Trump was fast-tracking their development to help his reelection bid, official said.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo said this during a news conference.

“Frankly, I’m not going to trust the federal government’s opinion and I wouldn’t recommend to New Yorkers based on the federal government’s opinion,” Cuomo said.

“New York State will have its own review when the federal government is finished with its review and says ‘it’s safe.’ We’re going to put together our own review too.”

On Wednesday, Trump said the White House could override the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) if the agency released tougher standards for the authorisation of a coronavirus vaccine.

Trump’s comments came as the FDA weighed new coronavirus vaccine guidelines that would likely push an authorisation date beyond the Nov. 3 election.

Recent polls have revealed that more than half of the population in the U.S. is against receiving a coronavirus vaccine and does not trust the vaccine’s safety or efficacy.
