As COVID-19 has infected more than 25 million people worldwide to date, Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, may have just given the markets a positive sign to start the week on the right foot.
Fauci said a vaccine could be available as early as November.
Given the pace of registrations and the level of infections occurring in the United States, it is likely that we will get a response by the end of the year.
It is conceivable that we will get an answer before that.
I would say a safe bet is at least knowing that you have a safe and effective vaccine by November, December, ”he told The Times newspaper in the UK. I wouldn’t be satisfied until a vaccine was proven safe and effective, before it was actually approved for general use.
The US stock market closed last week in a good position that should support the Asian session at the start of the week.
Additional hopes for a vaccine are also positive, which could be the catalyst for a USD / JPY return offer.
