Oxford University’s coronavirus vaccine is considered one of the frontrunners in the race to find a cure for the pandemic. There is hope the vaccine could be found to be safe and approved to be rolled out across the world by the end of the year. However, in an out of the blue attack on the UK, senior US Democrat Nancy Pelosi launched an assault on Britain’s drug standards.
She said at a press conference: “I think we have to be very careful about what happens in the UK.
“We have very stringent rules about the Food and Drug Admin here about clinical trials, timing, number of people etc so that when a drug is approved by the FDA that it’s safe and efficacious then it has the trust of the American people.
“My concern is that the UK’s system for that kind of judgment is not on par with ours.
“So if Boris Johnson decides he’s going to approve a drug and this president embraces that, that’s the concern I have.”
