Some 90 million doses of two different experimental Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines currently under development by multiple drug giants have been purchased by the British government for mass distribution. This is despite the fact that nobody knows for sure whether or not the jabs will even work because they have yet to be tested.
Proving once again that this whole thing is a scam, the United Kingdom (UK) is simply assuming that the drugs will work and has ordered them accordingly, with 30 million doses coming from the Pfizer and BioNtech partnership, and another 60 million coming from Valneva. This is on top of the 100 million doses of another vaccine variety that were already ordered from the University of Oxford.
The Oxford vaccines are being made from a genetically engineered version of the novel virus, while the BioNtech / Pfizer vaccine contains parts of the coronavirus’ genetic code. The Valneva variety reportedly contains an inactive version of the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19).
As to why the U.K. government ordered three different varieties of untested vaccines, officials say that trying out different “styles” of vaccines will help to maximize the chance that at least one of them will work. In other words, it is all trial and error, and the British general population is set to be human guinea pigs.
“The fact that we have so many promising candidates already shows the unprecedented pace at which we are moving,” stated Kate Bingham, chair of the British government’s “Vaccine Taskforce.”
At the same time, Bingham is urging the general public not to be “complacent or over-optimistic” about these vaccines actually working, because chances are that they probably will not, she admitted.
“The fact remains we may never get a vaccine and if we do get one, we have to be prepared that it may not be a vaccine which prevents getting the virus, but rather one that reduces symptoms,” Bingham is quoted as saying.
In other words, the British government is using taxpayer money to purchase boatloads of untested and possibly useless vaccines in the mere hope that they might, by some odd chance, actually work and not end up seriously harming or killing people.
If this is not the epitome of anti-science, then we do not know what is. But this is how both the U.K. and the United States are handling the crisis, with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) having recently awarded a massive cash sum to Pfizer to develop experimental Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines for the American market as well.
Unbelievably, there are currently 140 different Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines in pre-clinical trial, with another 10 in “Phase 1” of small-scale safety trials. Ten more are in “Phase 2” of expanded safety trials, while three more are in Phase 3 of wider testing, which involves having their effectiveness actually tested.
In other words, the earlier trials are looking mostly at the safety of these experimental vaccines to see how people’s bodies respond to being injected with them. If they pass this initial test, then researchers later look at whether or not these injections actually do anything.
Boris Johnson says he is hopeful that at least one of these vaccines will be “proven” effective by the end of the year. After that, he hopes to see them hit the market in early 2021.
“Obviously I’m hopeful, I’ve got my fingers crossed, but to say I’m 100 percent confident we’ll get a vaccine this year, or indeed next year, is alas just an exaggeration,” he is quoted as saying. “We’re not there yet.”
