    Good explanation of vaccine design approaches for us injectees…

  3. The virus won’t go away by winning political arguments. I can’t say thank you enough to you and your colleagues❤️❤️

    • Robert Derome then why you here tough guy

    • Go back to school moron

    • @Robert Derome there are over 2m cases in the world right now and you can see how contagious it is by graphing the total cases on a logarithmic scale, which literally is an exponential growth with a base of 1.2 (a doubling rate of 3-4 days in the beginning). im not making stuff up here and go see the stats yourself. people say its just a typical seasonal flu and you can easily recover if you have good immunity but thats simply not the truth if you look into the biology. this virus breaks down people’s lung tissue so our immune systems see the dysfunctional sacs as pathogens then it tries to force them out by coughing. however lung tissue cannot regenerate which means as you turn adult thats how much lung tissue you will have for the rest of life. even if someone happens to recover they will still suffer from breathing difficulties. no you wake tf up

    • @Robert Derome russian with empty new bogus account

  4. At times like this we should all be thankful that we have people working tirelessly to protect the population and saving lives.

  5. Poor doctor. Dude looks so tired. Pray for him.

    All the people who are not following the heatlh precautionaries, put them all in a large room together, and see how they act.

  16. I like this guy. He had the “safe and effective” emphasis and vibe going on… INSTEAD OF the vibe of “lets just roll out the vaccine first and then effective will be the second consideration and SAFE will be the third consideration.”

    Vaccine for COVID 19

    How difficult is it to create a vaccine that does more good than harm?
    If you said very difficult, you’re right.
    Why don’t we have vaccines for Sars Murs and corona Virus after 17years of attempting to make one.

    In animal studies we have tested for safety.. i.e. they won’t kill you when you inject them, but when you test efficacy by re-introducing the virus the animals tend to die or develop sever complications and it’s then that researchers strongly suggest not proceeding to human trials. Glad we have heeded that warning to date.

    Some examples of animal studies gone wrong!

    • APR 16 2020, Covid19, The University of Chicago’s phase 3 drug trial found that most of its patients had “rapid recoveries in fever and respiratory symptoms” and were discharged in less than a week, health-care publication.

    • MERS

    • @Major Minor that’s not a vaccine that’s a drug to help when you have already go it

    • @Major Minor Vaccines are not treatments. They’re not going to heal but but protect you from the Coronavirus. The point is to stop the spread.


    • One doctor has a Youtube explaining the test itself has no gold standard to base its accuracy with. It’s very sloppy statistics at best right now.

      there’s no Test that detects coronavirus . Lol it’s only for the genetic material identical to what most of us already have

      @C. Morgan …it’s still experimental. the “gold standard” point comes later.

      Health Care…a lot of people here are making comments which are limited by their lack of scientific/medical background i.e they don’t know what they don’t know. These doctors are far advanced for the comprehension of the average medical student. Reader beware.

  19. As Elon Musk said: CNN, you still exist?

  20. Scientists are under appreciated…Athletes are over appreciated.

      unworthy42…just like models & influencers are over appreciated & nurses & teachers are underappreciated.
