Scientists at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine believe that they’ve found a potential vaccine for the new coronavirus.The researchers announced their findings Thursday and believe the vaccine could be rolled out quickly enough to “significantly impact the spread of disease,” according to their study published in EBioMedicine. The vaccine would be delivered on a small, fingertip-sized patch. When tested on mice, the vaccine produced enough antibodies believed to successfully counteract the virus.

When something sounds to good to be true, it usually isn't. Let's hope in this case that it is true!

#1, Dr. Fauci will make sure that it does not happen. He's a destructive little man. He knows if they find a vaccine, he will no longer be king.

Plenty of scientists in different locales, “have found a vaccine,” starting with San Diego in the first week of reported U.S. cases. I’m wondering, what’s going on here? What happened to all these other discoveries before Pittsburg?

#5, you may be correct. But I have worked in DC for over 35 years. Worked for people like Dr. Fauci and had people like him work for me. I know a little bit how the system works. I would love to see a vaccine approved, but this man wants 6 to 8 months of testing. That will be too late. Maybe you should ask why NY is not providing anti-malaria medication that is approved until the patient enters the hospital. At that time, it's too late. Something smells here.

Lots and lots of very smart folks out there working full speed ahead on this. Let's hope that this proves out in humans, and that the CDC/FDA bureaucrats can be knocked out of the way and this ACTUALLY moved ahead at warp speed, without bureaucratic delays.

dr. Jonas Salk, the creator of the polio vaccine, did it at the University of Pittsburgh School of Public Health. why have there been so many stories for a Kung Flu vaccine at different locations? Because scientists are competitive in the search for knowledge. why was this so quick? Because of RNA and DNA capabilities. Why does there have to be a testing phase? To avoid terrible consequences. Dr. Jonas Salk tested his vaccine on mentally retarded children. Sabin probably did the same.

2nd post apologies, but,...#11, there is a difference from a scientific standpoint. I hesitate to try to explain, because I will confess to being scientifically illiterate. 9My unbdergrad science required courses were waved by my university because I passed advanced placement exams in biology and genetics. (I have no idea how I passed, except to say I was a really good multiple choice test taker.) The concept of creating immunity to a communicable disease is quite simple. Expose the person to a bit of the disease, and the person's body produces antibodies to ward off the disease. the risk is exposing the person to too much of the disease, which could be deadly. That's all I have to offer.

Wet blanket here. How do we know it works on humans? How do we know it is safe for humans? What if it actually makes the virus worse for humans, but they simply say, "great it works on mice", and they immediately spend a billion to produce, distribute, and administer it to everybody and then hundreds of thousands of people start to die from it and the entire system is even more overwhelmed? Would you want to be the one who had decided to rush it into distribution?

If Dr. Fauci had been captain of the Titanic, he would have wanted each lifeboat tested for leaks before deploying them.

Despite a steady wave of attacks from much of the media in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented national emergency, President Donald Trump’s ratings on handling the crisis have been strong. The nightly White House briefings have much to do with that, as the president stands before the nation and gives them an update on the actions being taken to counter the coronavirus — updates that come without the typical liberal media filter. It is in that regard that an influential far-left media group has petitioned the Federal Communications Commission to develop a wide-ranging censorship plan of Trump’s press conferences,

Anthony Fauci, the medical professional at the eye of the coronavirus storm, has just come out and said the federal government should issue a national order for all Americans to stay home, stay inside, stay put. Is he nuts? Let’s rephrase: He’s nuts. On CNN, Fauci was asked by host Anderson Cooper, “Knowing the science, does it make sense to you that some states are still not issuing stay-at-home orders? I mean, whether there should be a federally mandated directive for that or not, I guess that’s more of a political question, but just scientifically, doesn’t everybody have to be on the same page with this stuff?” And Fauci said — yep.

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference. Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak. The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

The bombshell decision by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to lay down their royal duties and move to Los Angeles unsurprisingly inflicted some additional security costs, and according to the US president’s recent Twitter rant, he was not about to pay for the couple’s protection in their newly found home. Charles could reportedly cover half of his son Prince Harry’s and his wife Meghan Markle’s security costs in the US, a royal insider told the Daily Mail. The Prince of Wales, who has just recovered from coronavirus, would pay a “private contribution” of up to £2 million ($2,5 million) every year

After all, in a non-COVID19 world, Biden would be having a great few weeks. Since his big win in South Carolina, Biden had been on a rout — winning big states and small, and building an insurmountable delegate lead. The political news media would be focused on his success.

On Wednesday’s show, co-host Byron Pitts ended an interview with Vice President Mike Pence by asking him “not in a political way,” but whether he “talk[s] to God” about feeling remorse for Americans who have died “because of steps the federal government did not take soon enough.”So here we had a journalist ask the Vice President if he prays to the Lord with a heart of repentance for having been responsible for dead Americans. Surely, Chuck Todd would be proud of that question.

The decision of American Navy to relieve the captain who warned publicly of coronavirus on his nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strikes us as the right move. We get that it’s a sad setback for an officer in an incredible command. The minute we read the captain’s letter about the crisis on United States Ship Theodore Roosevelt, though, we saw it as a breach on a matter that should have been kept within the chain of command. That’s easy to say, we understand, for a newspaper whose landlubber of an editor can’t go to Jones Beach without getting seasick. We’ve followed the reports that Democrats on the House Armed Services Committee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) certainly has a way of rewriting history. Pelosi appeared on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell today with Mitchell about a Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) that impeachment may have slowed down the federal response to the Wuhan coronavirus. It’s a good question because Democrats have prioritized their quest to get the president any way they can since he was elected and they have never counted the cost of that effort. While Trump responded immediately in January, Democrats were completely focused on their continuing narrative against Trump. The virus to them was just another avenue to try to attack Trump,

Michael Barbaro, host of the Times podcast "The Daily," shared the map with the text, "In a word....The South." Yet both the NYT article and Barbaro's tweet ignored basic realities about American life that help explain the reasons behind the map — and show that the South is not a uniquely dangerous region during this crisis. In the article, "Where America Didn't Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread," James Glanz dissects cellphone location data from the data intelligence firm Cuebiq.
