WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday that some big announcements have been made and are coming on therapeutics and vaccines for dealing with the coronavirus.

“This was a very big day therapeutically cure-wise and vaccine-wise. Tremendous progress has been made. Some big announcements are coming and have just come out and the market’s up almost 1,000 points,” Trump told a round-table meeting with restaurant executives and industry leaders at the White House.
