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.
Half a Million Sign Petition Refusing Mandatory Coronavirus Vaccine
No mandatory vaccine.
More than half a million people have already signed a petition created by LifeSiteNews rejecting the notion of a mandatory coronavirus vaccine.
As of Saturday, the petition has created more than 532,000 online signatures. It was created in early May. The lion’s share of petition signers are from the United States, with tens of thousands in the United Kingdom, Canada and Australia.
“The enormous response against a mandatory vaccination program for the coronavirus is truly global in nature,” said Gualberto Garcia Jones, LifeSite’s director of advocacy. “This is something people around the world are very concerned about, and which many reject.”
The petition breaks down the fundamental violation of essential liberties that a prospective mandatory vaccine effort would entail.
“Fear of a disease – which we know very little about, relative to other similar diseases – must not lead to knee-jerk reactions regarding public health, nor can it justify supporting the hidden agenda of governmental as well as non-governmental bodies that have apparent conflicts of interest in plans to restrict personal freedoms.”
The petition cites concern with the credibility of globalist billionaire Bill Gates, who has poured an immense amount of resources into the development of an entirely hypothetical coronavirus vaccine.
“And, while some people, like Bill Gates, may have a lot of money, his opinion and that of his NGO (the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation) – namely, that life will not return to normal till people are widely vaccinated – should not be permitted to influence policy decisions on a coronavirus vaccination program.”
There’s reason to be skeptical that a vaccine will even ever be developed for COVID-19. No vaccine exists for any of the other coronavirus that are known to infect humans, most notably the 2002 SARS epidemic, which gained considerable attention from the medical and scientific community. There’s no telling what side effects a potential new vaccine could cause.
The petition also cites the possible use of the stem cells from aborted fetuses in medical research, a practice in some scientific research projects that many Christians have found to be gravely immoral.
The health minister of the United Kingdom is refusing to rule out the notion of a mandatory vaccine.
