Donald Trump says CDC director ‘confused’ about Covid-19 vaccine arrival date – video

US president predicts that at least 100m doses of a coronavirus vaccine can be distributed by the end of 2020, contradicting a top government health official Trump dismisses as confused.

Hours earlier, Robert Redfield, director of the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said a Covid-19 vaccine could be broadly rolled out by the middle of next year or a little later.

‘No I think he made a mistake when he said that,’ Trump says. ‘That’s incorrect information. ‘I think he just misunderstood the question, probably.’
