Pence Predicts “Miracle” Vaccine By The End Of The Year

The Independent reports:

Vice President Mike Pence has responded to Joe Biden‘s acceptance speech criticism of the handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying he believes there is “a miracle around the corner.”

In an interview on CNN on Friday, Pence was asked how many Americans would lose their lives due to the pandemic by the end of the year. “As of this morning, 174,000 have lost their lives to this pandemic”, CNN’s John Berman asked, pointing out around 1000 new recorded deaths across the country on Thursday.

The vice president responded by insisting that the country is close to developing a vaccine before lashing out at Biden’s criticism of the administration at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday. “I got a newsflash for Mr Biden,” Mr Pence said. “We think there is a miracle around the corner.”
