Recommended Posts

WASHINGTON— The Defense Department is helping to develop and distribute a vaccine for the coronavirus by the end of the year as part of the White House’s Operation Warp Speed, Defense Secretary Mark Esper said Friday.

The White House program is a public-private partnership meant to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of vaccines, therapeutics, and medical countermeasures for the coronavirus, according to the Pentagon. Several government agencies are involved in the program, including Health and Human Services, the Energy Department, and the Department of Veterans Affairs. https://www.stripes.com/news/us/dod-joins-white-house-effort-to-speed-up-vaccine-development-distribution-1.629968
