Coronavirus live updates: Pfizer shares promising vaccine results; U.S. set to pass 10 million cases - The Washington Post 1The United States is on track to surpass 10 million coronavirus cases on Monday, just 10 days after hitting 9 million.

Anthony S. Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said Monday that the interim vaccine results posted by Pfizer and BioNTech were good news and could mean that the United States is on track to develop more than one successful vaccine.

Pfizer and German biotechnology firm BioNTech announced their coronavirus vaccine candidate was more than 90 percent effective, compared with a placebo. Epidemiologists and health experts were optimistic about the results, but also cautioned that more information is needed on the vaccine’s long-term efficacy and safety.

“The results are really quite good, I mean extraordinary,” said Fauci.
