That would be quick.

Published

President Donald Trump expressed confidence that the American medical research community will develop a vaccine for the coronavirus disease before the end of the year. The President was speaking in a Fox News town hall at the Lincoln Memorial on Sunday.

Such a research development would be unprecedented for a global disease, and would be a considerable human accomplishment.

We are very confident that we’re going to have a vaccine at the end of the year, by the end of the year… We think we’re going to have a vaccine by the end of this year, and we’re pushing very hard.

The World Health Organization has stated that there’s up to 70 different potential coronavirus vaccines that are currently in scientific development. The most advanced research projects are being overseen by the Chinese CanSino Biologics and the Beijing Institute of Technology, although American companies Moderna and Inovio Pharmaceuticals are leading projects of their own to create a vaccine.

Major scientists and researchers are estimating that the medical community will take at least 18 months to develop a vaccine suitable for mass usage, but the President is said to be pushing an initiative that is pressing for a vaccine to be made available by January 2021. The project, called ‘Operation Warp Speed,’ is currently running tests with fourteen different vaccine candidates.

President Trump also defended the wide-ranging set of restrictions enacted throughout American society during the town hall events, rebuking arguments that the disease is no different than the flu. The President cited cases of individuals whom he knows personally having died of the virus, stating that he’s never known anyone who has died of the flu.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti: It’s Time to Cancel “Everything”

Full lockdown.

Published

on

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sternly instructed residents of his city to cease all outgoing activities of everyday life, citing the county’s dismal coronavirus prospects, which he states are worse than what the nation’s second-largest city faced in March.

It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything. If it isn’t essential, don’t do it.

Los Angeles County officials enacted a full coronavirus shutdown for three weeks last week, strictly limiting permissible activities and placing the county in a lockdown similar to those utilized across the country at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March. Cases, hospitalizations and deaths are spiking, and county officials are concerned the city’s medical system is unprepared to accommodate a surge in coronavirus cases similar to that seen in New York earlier in the year.

Black Lives Matter protestors have staged nightly protests outside of Garcetti’s house demanding special privileges for individuals charged with felonies. However, the Mayor’s emergency order exempts protest gatherings from restrictions, placing them in the same category as congregating for religious services.

Garcetti was seen congregating in a group of chanting BLM demonstrators earlier in the year. Angelenos can only hope that their neighbors will execute greater discretion in the interest of public health and saving lives than their mayor has.
