Trump announces White House guidelines to slow coronavirus spread in 15 days but admits crisis could last for months
President Trump announced on Monday a set of guidelines that he said Americans should follow to prevent the further spread of the coronavirus — despite admitting that the pandemic could stretch into July or August.
Speaking during a briefing of the coronavirus task force, Trump outlined a plan to slow the spread of COVID-19 in 15 days.
“With several weeks of focused action, we can turn the corner and turn it quickly,” “Our government is prepared to do whatever it takes.”
The guidelines advised that older people and those with underlying health conditions “stay home and away from other people.”
Officials recommended that large swaths of the population isolate themselves and everyone avoids social gatherings or groups of more than 10 people.
They also said Americans should work from home if possible; avoid eating or drinking in bars and restaurants; and “avoid discretionary travel, shopping trips, and social visits.”
First-person dosed in US study for potential coronavirus vaccine
The first-ever clinical trial in a quest for a coronavirus vaccine began Monday as the first injections were administered at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute in Seattle.
Four volunteer participants were given injections of a vaccine created by Moderna Inc. in collaboration with the Vaccine Research Center (VRC) and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID). Phase 1 of the study is intended to test the safety of three dose levels of the new vaccine — mRNA-1273 — named after the genetic material that makes up the injections and which researchers say can produce a vaccine very quickly.
“This study is the first step in the clinical development of an mRNA vaccine”

The trial will include 45 healthy adults ages 18 to 55. Each participant will receive two shots, 28 days apart. Three different doses will be tested on 15 people each and the participants will be studied to determine whether the vaccine is safe.
