GET THE FACTS!

THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS MADE THE DEVELOPMENT OF VACCINES, TESTS, AND THERAPEUTIC TREATMENTS FOR THE CORONAVIRUS A NUMBER ONE PRIORITY

  • On March 2, 2020, the President announced a new partnership with pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies in order to accelerate the development of vaccines and therapeutic treatments to combat the coronavirus.
    • The agreement will ensure the development of vaccines and therapies moves forward ” with maximum speeds .”
  • Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar has worked with pharmaceutical companies and the coronavirus task force to remove obstacles, address supply chain challenges, and speed up the research and development process.
  • The Trump administration has ” slashed red tape ” in order to speed up the development of vaccines and therapies.
  • The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) announced a new program, called the Coronavirus Treatment Acceleration Program (CTAP), which is allowing the FDA to use every tool to bring new therapies to sick patients ” as quickly as possible .”
    • The FDA has the ability to respond to requests from companies developing coronavirus treatments within 24 hours ; the agency explained that it’s goal is “to get the right FDA staff in touch with them and work to get studies going fast.”
    • Additionally, the FDA is “reviewing expanded access request within three hours .”

THE FDA’S NEW PROGRAM IS BEING PUT INTO ACTION AND TESTING AND TREATMENTS ARE BECOMING AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC
