Coronavirus Vaccine latest: The Coronavirus vaccine could be available in the United States before the end of this year, claimed American pharmaceutical company Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla.
In that regard, Siegel said Bourla told the Food and Drug Administration that 44,000 people will be part of a vaccine test - meaning 22,000 get the vaccine and 22,000 do not.
"In our best case we have quite a good chance - more than 60% - but we will know if the product works or not by the end of October", Bourla said in a recent interview.

I think this is a very promising situation".
