Paused Covid Vaccine Trial Resumes, Trump Is Hit Over CDC Messaging


AstraZeneca had hit the pause buttion on its Covid vaccine clinical trials after an unexplained illness affected one of the volunteers. The great news? The safety review is complete and the trial has resumed.

But also, Albert Bourla, the chairman and CEO of Pfizer says he expects to know whether his company's coronavirus vaccine is effective by next month. Not so great news? According to Politico, officials in the Trump Administration have pushed to change the weekly reports released by the CDC as so they don't undermine the President's political message.

It’s being alleged that Health and Human Services spokesperson Michael Caputo and his team demanded to see reports out of Atlanta before they were released to the public.
