Ousted U.S. vaccine expert says the country is wasting time in coronavirus response| CCTV English

Rick Bright, a high-ranking federal scientist, was ousted last month as director of the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority after he was reluctant to promote the use of drugs such as hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19 patients.
Though on Wednesday, President Donald Trump dismissed Bright as “a disgruntled guy”, the scientist replied in an interview that “I am not disgruntled”.
“I am frustrated at a lack of urgency to get a head-start on developing life-saving tools for Americans,” said Bright.
