(Reuters) - The number of COVID-19 cases in the United States was on track to surpass 12 million on Saturday, just days ahead of the Thanksgiving holiday that health experts have warned could fuel the surging spread of infection around the country. Reuters data shows the pace of new infections in the United States has quickened, with nearly one million more cases recorded in just the last 6 days since the country recorded 11 million. This compares with the 8 days it took to get from 10 million cases to 11 million cases, and the 10 days it took to get from 9 to 10 million. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control issued a “strong recommendation” to Americans this week to refrain from traveling over Thanksgiving. As the United States set a new record for COVID-19 cases on Friday - 196,815 infections in a day - Pfizer Inc said it would seek emergency-use authorization of its vaccine from U.S. regulators, the first such application.

Trial size and design: Larger is betterClinical trials are typically made up of three main phases, but not all vaccine trials are designed the same way. Those are different questions.”Should we withhold the vaccine from the population for two years because we want perfect data? Tracking side effectsThe FDA requires that vaccine developers submit two months of follow-up safety data as part of the application for emergency use. These are just chance associations, but vaccine programs are prone to be undermined by them.”Reviewed by independent scientistsThere is a system in place to review vaccine data before it is granted approval and made available to the public. And the committees will continue to evaluate safety data over time, according to Lee.

Fauci: Vaccinating people who disregard Covid as ‘fake news’ could be ‘a real problem’White House coronavirus advisor Dr. Anthony Fauci said on Thursday that convincing people who consider the coronavirus to be “fake news” to get vaccinated against the disease could become an issue as the nation seeks to achieve so-called herd immunity to suppress the pandemic. “They actually don’t think that this is a problem,” Fauci said during a conversation with The Hastings Center.

A patient arrives outside Maimonides Medical Center, as the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) continues, in Brooklyn, New York, U.S., November 17, 2020. Government officials in at least 17 states representing both ends of America’s political divide have issued sweeping new public health mandates this month. Twenty-five states reported 10% of COVID-19 diagnostic tests coming back positive for the week ending on Sunday, Nov. 15. Several state officials also have urged citizens to exercise caution around the Thanksgiving holiday and not travel or socialize with extended family for the traditional indoor feast. “Experts are predicting a ‘winter spike’ in cases this winter in December and January – right when our carnival calendars get rolling,” Cantrell said on the city’s website.

I do public health things,” he said in an interview on Thursday ahead of next week’s Reuters Total Health conference. Moderna Inc, a company developing a similar vaccine with support from the White House’s Operation Warp Speed program, is expected to report results from their late-stage vaccine trial in the next week or so. Both vaccines use messenger RNA (mRNA) technology, an entirely new rapid vaccine platform that uses synthetic genes to trigger an immune response. I have every reason to believe that the Moderna product is going to be similar,” Fauci said. “It’s an almost identical platform to the Pfizer vaccine, so I would not be surprised at all if it was highly effective,” Fauci added.

I do public health things,” he said in an interview on Thursday ahead of next week’s Reuters Total Health conference. On Monday, Pfizer Inc PFE.N and German partner BioNTech SE 22UAy.F announced that their experimental coronavirus vaccine was more than 90% effective - significantly higher than most experts had anticipated. Moderna Inc MRNA.O, a company developing a similar vaccine with support from the White House's Operation Warp Speed program, is expected to report results from their late-stage vaccine trial in the next week or so. I have every reason to believe that the Moderna product is going to be similar,” Fauci said. “It’s an almost identical platform to the Pfizer vaccine, so I would not be surprised at all if it was highly effective,” Fauci added.

There are still many questions, such as how effective the vaccine is by ethnicity or age and how long immunity may last. William Schaffner, infectious diseases expert at Vanderbilt University School of Medicine in Nashville, Tennessee, called the Pfizer results better than most anticipated. The Pfizer vaccine must be shipped and stored at an extremely cold temperature, which requires necessary infrastructure. The European Union said on Monday it would soon sign a contract for up to 300 million doses of the Pfizer and BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine. The companies have a $1.95 billion contract with the U.S. government to deliver 100 million vaccine doses beginning this year.

We’re going in the wrong direction,” said Dr. Anthony Fauci, task force member and director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. Fauci noted that coronavirus cases are rising in 47 states and patients are overwhelming hospitals across the country. “We continue to see unrelenting, broad community spread in the Midwest, Upper Midwest and West. This will require aggressive mitigation to control both the silent, asymptomatic spread and symptomatic spread,” one state’s report said. The task force reports said the cooler weather is a major factor in the increase as friends and families move gatherings indoors.
