TODAY: Trump To Visit NC Pharma Working On Vaccine

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump will seek to put a spotlight on efforts to rapidly develop a coronavirus vaccine with a visit Monday to a North Carolina facility working on components of one of the candidates.

Trump is scheduled to take a tour and receive a briefing during his afternoon stop at Bioprocess Innovation Center at Fujifilm Diosynth Biotechnologies in Morrisville, N.C.

The facility, part of Research Triangle Park, is involved in the production of a vaccine candidate developed by Novavax, which was awarded a contract worth $1.6 billion by the federal government earlier this month.

Today’s trip is part of the Trump campaign’s new “he actually cares about the pandemic” effort.
