Corona Virus Vaccine

Recommended Posts

In a stunning development today Russia has announced it has a working vaccine which has past all tests: They are now going to scale up production so they can start injecting it in October. However, some channels are reporting Russia is going to make receiving the vaccine mandatory.

I expect markets to rally next week, the light is now showing at the end of the tunnel.

There are at least 125 other vaccine efforts. If the Russian claim is as lame as some of their other stories it does not matter.

They barely tested their vaccine. It certainly does not meet FDA approval methods.

The first link I pull up says exactly what I was thinking.

Quote
  • The world’s first coronavirus vaccine program could start in Russia as soon as mid-August, even though the country did not reveal anything about its supposedly successful experimental drug that can prevent COVID-19 infections.
  • Phase 2 trials of the drug created by the Moscow-based Gamaleya Institute will end on August 3rd, and Phase 3 will coincide with the actual deployment of the medicine. Healthcare workers may be among the first to receive the vaccine.
  • The speed at which Russia developed the vaccine raises concerns that research has been fast-tracked at the request of the Kremlin, which could end up having dangerous consequences.

I think it was two weeks ago there was talk that the Russians were giving the vaccine untested to high level government officials.

In this article the Russians compare it to Sputnik. Maybe it should be compared to the Soviet's claims of missile capability which the U2 flights showed to be false.

Here is the sort of article from 10 days ago.

This is way too short a time period to show safety and efficacy.

An ethical study does not purposely expose the subjects to the disease. maybe the Russians did.

Highly dubious, to say the least.

You realize that the "past[sic] all tests"could mean no one died within 1 hour.

There could  be stinking slime spots where they died 2 hours later.

Testing and health concerns aside, if Russia does go ahead with this and it does stop the spread of the coronavirus there, it would at least demonstrate that an effective vaccine is possible.

Is this something of an ego issue for the west? Russia beat us so the vaccine is dangerous? There were also allegations that the vaccine information was stolen?

Unlike the other 125 or more vaccine efforts Russia was silent. Then it offers a claim of finalizing tests it just started.

Safety is an important issue. Where are the safety and efficacy reports?
