Man that interview was amazing. Seeing him literally panic as his BS was called out time after time.

I hope other interviewers smell the blood in the water. :sweet:

This is child endangerment 8-O

This is the kind of thing that should get federal law enforcement attention during a pandemic. This is not a matter of opinion, but of putting students and their families lives in danger.

Russia has approved a controversial Covid-19 vaccine for widespread use after less than two months of human testing, including a dose administered to one of Vladimir Putin’s daughters.

Tests on volunteers, including in the military, also raised ethical issues, including whether some had been pressurised to participate or felt pressured not to describe side effects, given the difference in responses given by those in the military and by civilians.

Now comes the problem of pushing ahead with mass production in the absence of completed phase 3 trials.
TL:DR - all drugs typically require extensive Phase 3 trials to determine efficacy and safety.

Many will have heard Russia’s announcement that they have approved a coronavirus vaccine. I’ve already had several people ask me what I think of it, so let me be clear: I think it’s a ridiculous publicity stunt. If it’s supposed to make Russia look like some sort of biotechnology powerhouse, then as far as I’m concerned it does the opposite. It makes them look desperate, like the nation-state equivalent of a bunch of penny-stock promoters.

This blog is excellent, I've read it before. You can learn a lot on how medicine development actually works.
