Only A Vaccine Can Rescue Us


When a coronavirus vaccine comes on the market, people will likely need two doses.


The federal government has given large amounts of money to six pharmaceutical companies as an incentive for them to speed up vaccine development and clinical trials and get their products to market in record time.


Two of these companies, Moderna and Pfizer, are now in Phase 3 of large clinical trials with 30,000 volunteers. The volunteers in each of the trials are getting two doses of the vaccine, with Moderna spacing their shots out 28 days apart and Pfizer spacing theirs out by 21 days. These trials are already moving at a good clip.


Johnson & Johnson are also already in Phase 3 of their clinical trials. Volunteers will take one or two doses in these trials.


We need to produce 600 million doses for the U.S. which is a very big task. Dr. Nada Sanders, a professor of supply chain management at Northeastern University said, “Doubling is a huge supply chain issue and you have to double everything in the supply chain.”


Today we are still facing critical challenges all over the whole nation. A lot of people still do not believe in wearing facial masks, including the RNC. At the White House last Thursday 1,500 people attended the convention event and nobody was wearing a mask.


Let us all hope the vaccine will come on the market soon. That might be the only way we can save our lives.



    疫苗曙光再現

六家美國藥厰正在瘋狂忙工希望早日發現新冠疫苗為全人類戰勝这场前所未有的疾病挑戰。

根據科研專家們的硏究接種疫苗可能要次才見效, 他們顧慮要大家在一個月內打兩次疫苗可能面臨許多困難摩爾教授說這將是人類歷史上規模最大最繁重的一次防禦工作目前聯邦政府已經給六家制藥廠重金補助, 希望他們能早日拯救國民之痛苦。

摩德納和凡色兩家公司已經進入第三期臨床試驗,每家已經有三萬名志願者參加, 每位志願者必須在二十一天之間隔內打另外一家詹生和詹生也已進入第三期試驗他們視情況給志願者打一針或兩針。

專家們認為美國全國需要生產六億個疫苗是件艱鉅之任務, 根據CNN之民調,到目前為止仍有百分之四十的國民不願或不信仼接種疫苗。

今天我們正面臨生死存亡之秋,目前已有十八萬人失去了親人, 許多大型集會仍然無視專家之建言為人為己戴上口罩包括上週四晚上共和黨在白宮一千五百人之集會。

我們深信今年底之前, 疫苗之出現可能是我們唯一的救星。
