Vaccines - Billion dollar profits - "Real Solution"

Importance of Covid-19 Vaccine - allow reopening of Economy

The Covid-19 pandemic is a nightmare, as no one wants to wait four years for a vaccine, while millions die and economies remain paralyzed.

Likelihood, Potentials

Many projects are being pursued by governments, pharmaceutical makers, biotech innovators and academic laboratories to tackle Covid-19.

Some of the leading contenders for a coronavirus vaccine are now promising to have the first batches ready in record time, by the start of next year. They have accelerated their schedules by collapsing the standard vaccine timeline.

  • 254 therapies being explored. - 95 vaccines related to Covid-19 being explored.
  • Seven or more have reached the stage of clinical trials.

Majors

  • Moderna - Harvard spinoff
  • Johnson & Johnson promising a billion doses of an as-yet-undeveloped vaccine by the end of next year.
  • Sanofi (French) and GSK (uk) - expect to begin clinical trials late this year for a Covid-19 vaccine that it repurposed from work on a SARS vaccine. If successful, the vaccine could be ready by late 2021.

Biotech Researchers and Trials in Progress

  • BioNTech/Pfizer
  • Inovio Pharma
  • Vaxart
  • Altimmune
  • Janssen

Academic Researchers

  • U of Oxford - AstraZeneca to manufacture tens of millions of doses by the end of this year.
  • Imperial College
  • Novamax
  • CureVac

Mutation Problem

Billions in Profit and Greed, Espionage, Geopolitical Strife

  • Hiding, biowarfare R&D by China and even lawsuits over the origins of the virus.

  • While China has the most experience, allegations have poisoned most efforts at cooperation between US and China.

  • Bio-Espionage. The U.S. government is already warning that American innovations must be protected from theft — chiefly from Beijing as vaccines and treatments for the coronavirus are today’s holy grail.

Militaries being hampered by Covid-19

China was actively mocking US Navy as many multi-billion dollar US aircraft carriers were rendered impotent due to Covid-19 infections in ship crowded conditions.

Chinese Trials

CanSino, AMMS Trials

SinoVac Trials

Wuhan Institute of Biological Products / Sinopharm

The Wuhan institute was involved in a 2018 scandal in which ineffective vaccines for diphtheria, tetanus, whooping cough and other conditions were injected into hundreds of thousands of babies. The government confiscated the Wuhan institute’s “illegal income,” fined the company, and punished nine executives. But the company was allowed to continue to operate. It is now running a coronavirus vaccine project, and along with two other Chinese groups has been allowed to combine its safety and efficacy trials. -- NYTimes

Indian Trials

Serum Institute of India - world’s largest producer of vaccine doses

The chief executive said that most of its vaccine “would have to go to our countrymen before it goes abroad.”
