20:58 GMT - Vaccine could be only 50 to 60 percent effective - Fauci

An approved coronavirus vaccine could end up being effective only 50-60% of the time, meaning public health measures will still be needed to keep the pandemic under control, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the top U.S. infectious diseases expert, said.

"We don't know yet what the efficacy might be. We don't know if it will be 50 percent or 60 percent. I'd like it to be 75 percent or more," Fauci said in a webinar hosted by Brown University.

"But the chances of it being 98 percent effective is not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach."
