This could be the worst news Dr. Fauci has given about coronavirus yet 37 |

If you didn't know, Moderna, one of the few company's currently leading the development of a coronavirus vaccine, recently entered Phase 3 of clinical trials. Phase 3 is the last phase before the vaccine could receive Food and Drug Administration approval. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, recently sat down for a Q&A session at the Brown University of Public Health to talk about vaccine development.

Throughout the Q&A, Fauci was asked how effective he thinks the coronavirus vaccine will be once development is completed. Fauci responded by saying that the probability of the coronavirus vaccine being 98% effective is "not great", and that the first vaccine might only be 60% effective. Fauci explains, "You've got to think of the vaccine as a tool to get the pandemic to no longer be a pandemic, but to be something that's well controlled."

However, Fauci says that even if the coronavirus is only 50% effective, it would still be acceptable in the eyes of the FDA to be given to Americans.
