Doctor on FDA's COVID vaccine guidelines and VP debate safety
The FDA has issued guidelines for coronavirus vaccine manufacturers which make it extremely unlikely that a vaccine will be approved before Election Day. And there's ongoing concern about the COVID-19 outbreak affecting President Trump and top White House aides. Internal medicine specialist and immunologist Dr. Neeta Ogden joins CBSN to talk about the latest.
In an interview with NBC News' Kate Snow, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he supports the FDA's stricter guidelines for a coronavirus vaccine and rejected comparisons of Covid-19 and the flu. Dr. Bob Lahita is a professor of medicine at New York Medical College and chairman of medicine at St. Joseph's Health Care System. He joins CBSN's "Red & Blue" to discuss President Trump's recovery, the vaccine development process and why it's highly unlikely we'll see a coronavirus vaccine before Election Day. Dr. Dyan Hes, a New York pediatrician, joined CBSN to discuss the FDA's emergency use authorization for Eli Lilly's monoclonal antibody treatment for COVID-19. Dr. Hes also provides insight on how to recognize and deal with stress in children during the coronavirus pandemic. A 25-year-old man in Nevada is the first confirmed case of a patient in the U.S. who recovered from a coronavirus infection and then got infected a second time from a distinct strain of the virus. Dr. Dyan Hes, founder of Gramercy Pediatrics, joins CBSN to talk about the risk of reinfection, plus another pause in one of the vaccine trials and other coronavirus news.
