Biden reacts to news of Moderna Vaccine “we are still months away. Until then, Americans need to continue to practice social-distancing and mask-wearing”

U.S. stocks surged Monday after Moderna said its coronavirus vaccine was more than 94% effective.

Joe Biden tweeted in response to the news “Today’s news of a second vaccine is further reason to feel hopeful. What was true with the first vaccine remains true with the second: we are still months away. Until then, Americans need to continue to practice social-distancing and mask-wearing to get the virus under control.”

He added in a subsequent tweet “Once again, I congratulate the brilliant women and men who produced this breakthrough and have brought us one step closer to beating this virus. I am also thankful for the frontline workers who are still confronting the virus around the clock.”

President Trump tweeteed “Another Vaccine just announced. This time by Moderna, 95% effective. For those great “historians”, please remember that these great discoveries, which will end the China Plague, all took place on my watch!”
