Coronavirus live updates: Drugmakers pledge to prioritize safety; WHO says 'this will not be the last pandemic'

0


Nine drugmakers working on coronavirus vaccines publicly pledged on Tuesday to prioritize safety and uphold rigorous scientific standards as concerns mount of political pressure to bring a vaccine to market before the Nov. 3 U.S. presidential election. The pledge sought to “ensure public confidence” by committing to only apply for regulatory authorization when enough data has been collected from a large phase three trial. Three vaccine manufacturers have now entered phase three trials. 

The following data was compiled by Johns Hopkins University:

  • Global cases: More than 27.3 million
  • Global deaths: At least 893,00
  • U.S. cases: More than 6.3 million
  • U.S. deaths: At least 189,200
