The term is usually unintended consequences but what about unexpected consequences. I am having a personal struggle agreeing with a right winger of the Tories. Steve baker is right about Covid imo but was once Chairman of the ERG. This isn't good for my blood pressure.
Looks like the biggest hurdle has been removed. Time to launch I reckon.
*perhaps we need some Swedish help. I heard on the radio today that one of their top epidemiologists explained the quite high death rates in the initial wave in Sweden. He used the term "dry tinder". Because of the previous mild flu season many vulnerable and old people had survived the regular cull. Hence there were a lot more in the waiting room queue when Covid hit. A certain pragmatism is often necessary. I've had enough of experts. Just get on with it. I haven't done the sums but merging flu and covid together might be a more sensible picture. Covid is weakening anyway because that's what viruses do.
The trials are probably proceeding at full speed anyway - the only way to speed them up would be challenger trials, that would prove efficiency and safety much quicker - enrol say 10,000 young adults in isolation centres around the world - give them the jab, expose them to Covid - answers in no time.
Vaccines mean that you let somebody else take the responsibility and all you have to do is turn up for the jab. If they really want to succeed they should get Amazon involved and then nobody even has to get off their arse. It will be a multi-pronged solution involving social distancing, masks, prophylactics, therapeutics and of course the "golden bullet" a vaccine. Organising modern western populations is akin to herding cats and many haven't the slightest interest in following the pandemic guidelines. You have your anti-vaxxers and conspiracists joining in too. It's a mess.
I can see the logic of John Moulton's view but if the politicians act to fast - as Putin may have done in Russia, although even he now seems to be waiting for results from their stage 3 trial - we could create at the very least a undermining in public confidence regarding vaccines and in the worst case a public health emergency if the vaccine had bad side effects.
A balance has to be reached, I think that the Chief Medical Officers have to first give their approval, then the politicians can actually make the decision to proceed with the vaccination program.
Never mind, all these thousands of students are asymptomatic, really!! along with all the other thousands that have this DEADLY virus according to the test, if you believe the test is not picking up other corona signatures you believe in Father Christmas, but he won't be coming this year anyway, only thing coming is a second wave of job losses and ghost towns and all for nothing, more deaths this month from suicide, murder and car rashes combined. JMHO.
"Decisions about a vaccine can't be left to the medical authorities. Their already expressed views are to put safety first as mistakes will lead to criticism and probably legal action. The decision is one for our political leaders, who can see the full picture and provide legal immunity to those who need it." John Moulton - Centre for Policy Studies
Has been badly handled by practically everybody and even the good stuff gets lost in partisan and rigid views. I am still p*ssed at not being able to participate because of a high reading on my BP yesterday. At my age you know your own body and I regularly take my bp. Today I took 2 readings a.m/p.m 123/83 and 128/74. I wasn't surprised as I wasn't being interrogated or trying to remember stuff that happened decades ago. The researchers have created a mystique around this disease and it isn't Ebola. I told the research doctor I was happy to go ahead and sign a disclaimer. It is time to get ahead of the curve and even run a separate trial with volunteers injected and sent to a Trump Rally or similar super spreader event. There are plenty of crazy people who regularly prove the Darwin theories and they could save us months and get the economies of the world surging. I understand there are protocols and statistics to gather because probability has to be followed and excuses prepared. In the past we had smallpox which killed far more people and a fatality rate of up to 30%. I liken it to Grenfell and the Manchester Arena when firemen and ambulance personnel followed existing protocols and stood by as many needlessly died. Sometimes common sense and owning a risk takes precedence. Nobody is a bigger critic of the US administration than me but I concede that some of their ideas are worth the risk. They are more gung ho than us and I dare say they'll come out of it better than us overall. Sometimes these clinical trials seem to me like the auditors telling AB how to run EnQuest. The risk of being too late is massively worse than being too early imo.
I wouldn't invest in vaccine companies. The US CDC Director said that masks would be a better bet than vaccine. Along with distancing I expect a number of competing vaccines to arrive simultaneously. Once one is launched the others will need to speed up or be stranded. I think we've had the wool pulled over our eyes for long enough. This isn't the 18th Century.
