None of the researchers predicted the coronavirus results that Donald Trump shared.
It’s better than anyone dared hope.
Donald Trump gave America staggeringly good news about this coronavirus cure.
While having an effective treatment for coronavirus would help reduce its mortality, most treatments to combat viral illnesses are limited.
Vaccines are the best treatment for viral illnesses and can both stop the majority of illnesses from occurring and prevent the illness from being as bad.
Vaccines have led to a 99.9% decrease in measles, mumps is down 99% and smallpox has been eradicated.
With an effective vaccine, the conversation on the coronavirus would change overnight.
We don’t yet have one for sure but the results from the first stage of Moderna’s vaccine trials look promising.
“It’s incredible what they can do, and I’ve seen results and the results are staggeringly good,” President Trump said.
“You’re seeing it maybe today for the first time where not only are the markets up tremendously, but we’ve had tremendous, tremendously good and positive information on therapeutics, on cures and on vaccines,” he continued.
The stock market jumped 890 points when Moderna’s vaccine news was released on Monday.
The first stage of vaccine trials are on a small sample group just to make sure that the vaccine is safe.
For the first stage of the trials, 45 volunteers were randomly given a dosage of 25 micrograms, 100 micrograms, or 250 micrograms.
Not only did the vaccine seem safe, the volunteers also developed antibodies to the coronavirus.
This makes it far more promising that the vaccine will be effective against the coronavirus.
Even the volunteers who received the lowest dose had the same levels of antibodies as people who had recovered from the coronavirus.
“I think the totality of science tells us that this is the right antigen and it should be protective,” said Tal Zaks, Moderna’s Chief Medical Officer.
Moderna is planning to start its mid-stage study soon and the late stage in July, and if it proves to be effective, we could have a vaccine by this fall.
If Moderna successfully pulls a vaccine in this time frame, it will be an unheard-of achievement.
Having a vaccine before the second wave hits would prevent a number of deaths and prevent Democrats from talking about further shutdowns and would lead to far faster recovery of the American economy.
“I think you’re going to have the ‘v,’” Trump said, predicting that the economic markets would start bouncing back in a ‘V’ shaped recovery. “I think it’s going to be terrific.”
Moderna’s positive vaccine trial is just about the best coronavirus news that’s possible.
Trump felt that even the third quarter of 2020 would be rough but that 2021 would be far better.
“This is a very big day, this feels much different than Friday,” Trump said, referring to the market downturn on Friday when the stock market dropped 600 points.
Many of the experts’ terrible predictions have failed to come true and America is rapidly creating solutions that will defeat this virus for good.
