Suddenly all companies have a vaccine ready ?

Hey, wait a moment. How can it be, that many involved pharma mobs have or are now suddenly close to being ready with a Corona Virus vaccine ? Pfizer reported first that they are ready and then, by some magical coincidence (!), many other companies are also ready to roll. Of course, they are not. It’s probably just panic and fear of missing out on substantial vaccine supply business and continuing government investment. “What normally takes 7 years, was done in less than one” – yeah, right. A healthy amount of mistrust – yes, mistrust – is advisable, especially when it comes to pharmaceutics. The records show that what is today a magical cure, is tomorrow taken off the market because of side-effects and danger for patients. Meanwhile, the legal costs involved are just a small fraction of the money already earned with bad medicine. So, who cares ? I exaggerate – may be, but what if we all get injected with a hastily released and under-tested vaccine and things go wrong ? What would that do to our nation and to our economy? Probably worse than the virus itself, say I.

Medicine is not an exact science. This is a fact. There is no mathematical model of the human body. All there is, is a bit of biology, chemistry and heavy reliance on testing and statistics. In which other major field are grossly simplifying words like “protagonist” and “antagonist” used because of lack of scientific penetration and understanding ? I for one have all alarm bells chiming out loud.
