Trump says coronavirus will be 'eradicated' as US death toll passes 60,000 – video

'It's going to leave. It's going to be gone. It's going to be eradicated,' US president Donald Trump said of the coronavirus during a White House round table with business leaders. His comment comes as the number of Americans who have died of coronavirus passed 60,000. Trump was asked if he wanted the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to help fast track the use of a closely watched intravenous therapeutic drug, remdesivir, currently undergoing trials for treating Covid-19 patients.  'We want everything to be safe, but we would like to see very quick approvals, especially with things that work,' Trump said. The US's top infectious disease expert, Dr Anthony Fauci, has said that the antiviral drug remdesivir will become the standard of care for Covid-19 after early results showed it helped patients recover more quickly from the illness
