In an interview with Fox News, U.S. President Donald Trump today said: “We are very close to a vaccine, close to therapeutics, really good therapeutics."

"But even without that", Trump added, "I don't like to talk about that because it's fading away. It's going to fade away, but having a vaccine would be really nice and that's going to happen."

President Trump said the U.S. is well equipped to deal with virus flare-ups, adding that his administration won’t be closing the country again with new virus outbreaks.
