On Wednesday, President Trump warned Texans to stay alert as they work to stop the spread of the coronavirus. While speaking in the Lone Star State, the president acknowledged new cases in Texas have finally started to decrease.
He confirmed his administration will be sending 500 antiviral treatments, along with PPE and testing kits, to all Medicare and Medicaid certified nursing homes.
The president also gave an update on his vaccine program, “Operation Warp Speed.”
“Earlier this week, a promising vaccine entered the final stage of clinical trials long ahead of schedule, with more following very quickly behind,” he said. “We have some of the greatest companies and labs in the world doing this.”
President Trump added the coronavirus vaccine is being created faster than any other vaccine in history.
