US President insists 'a wonderful vaccine' will make 'the people of the world very happy'.

US President Donald Trump has suggested America could secure a coronavirus vaccine by October.

Trump told a media briefing at the White House on Monday that the US would have a "wonderful vaccine" very soon, making "the people of the world very happy".

"We will end the pandemic under Operation Warp Speed," he said.

"We have pioneered ground-breaking therapies and reduced the fatality rate by 85 per cent since April. Under my leadership, we will produce a vaccine in record time. 

"Joe Biden and his new liberal running mate [Kamala Harris] will destroy this country and would destroy the economy, and should immediately apologise for their anti-vaccine rhetoric that they are talking right now.

"This vaccine could have taken two to three years but instead it is going to be done in a very short period of time, and we could even have it during the month of October.
"The vaccine will be very safe and very effective. The people of the world will be very happy."
