U.S. Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris argued their points in the vice presidential debate in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Wednesday night, local time.
With even President Trump now having COVID-19, the virus and the search for a vaccine were hotly contested topics.
"If the public health professionals, if Dr. Fauci, if the doctors tell us to take it, I'll be the first in line to take it. Absolutely. But if Donald Trump tells us that we should take it, I'm not takin' it."
Although vice presidential debates have historically been seen as unlikely to sway the outcome of elections, many tuned in to this one.

Each candidate had their moments, with Mike Pence accusing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden of being too sympathetic to China in the past.
"Lost the trade war with China? Joe Biden never fought it. Joe Biden has been a cheerleader for communist China through over the last several decades.'
Earlier in the day, President Trump gave a personal update of his current state in a video filmed at the White House's Rose Garden.
He heaped praise on an antibody cocktail developed by Regeneron, which he even called a "cure".
"I want everybody to be given the same treatment as your president, because I feel great. I feel like perfect. So I think this was a blessing from God that I caught it. This was a blessing in disguise."
Trump also said the therapy will be provided to all for free before going on to blame all that's happened on China.
Despite his appearance, there is still much speculation over the President's health.
His physician, Dr. Sean Conley released a memo on Wednesday, stressing that the President is in stable condition, had been symptom free for over 24 hours and is showing detectable levels of antibodies.
