Defense secretary doubles down on aggressive timeline to have coronavirus vaccine ready by the end of the year

17:34 - Secretary of Defense Mark Esper said that the Pentagon was able to offer up to 2,000 deployable ventilators, but that the machines were different than those used by civilians and would require training before operation. He added that the U.S. government would need to seek support from industry on procuring more ventilators. The virus — which has already killed more than 7,167 people and infected more than 183,000 people around the world — is spreading from the U.S. military’s Indo-Pacific Command, the largest of all geographic combatant commands.
