Pfizer to expand testing of COVID-19 vaccine in US by September

Pfizer Inc. announced on Tuesday that it plans to test the COVID-19 vaccine on thousands of test patients by September, CNBC reported.

The pharmaceutical company started testing its potential vaccine on infected patients in the United States last week.

"We are monitoring the safety of the doses," Pfizer CEO and Chairman Albert Bourla said. If the vaccine proves to be successful and assessed as safe both by the company and regulators such as the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and European Medicines Agency (EMA), "millions of doses" can be delivered by October, Bourla added.
