Medical experts have to tell Trump that flu vaccine won't work on coronavirus

By Oliver Willis -March 3, 2020 10:10 AM

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases quickly shut down the suggestion during a meeting at the White House.

During a meeting with pharmaceutical executives at the White House on Monday, Donald Trump asked whether the existing flu vaccine could be used to fight the coronavirus outbreak.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, immediately rejected the proposal.

From the March 2 White House meeting:

DONALD TRUMP: But the same vaccine could not work? You take a solid flu vaccine, you don't think that would have an impact or much of an impact on corona?

DR. ANTHONY FAUCI: No. Probably not.

TRUMP: Probably not.

The flu and COVID-19, the disease caused by the strain of coronavirus that originated in China, are completely different afflictions. In fact, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention notes, the flu vaccine is not even able to prevent all the different strains of the flu itself which is why it changes year to year.

And then he goes out on some campaign n trail and says the fucking opposite.....................

Fucking asshole..........................

perhaps needs to be invoked, e.g., the 25th amendment?!

2. Wouldn't it be ironic if covid-19 is what ultimately does away with 45?

And I mean that in every way possible.

6. Let's add this to the conversation.

 

Just mentioned on Bloomberg a few minutes ago. This Rate cut today is being promoted as a stimulus in order to of set the Economic of the Cliff effect of last week. Sounds like it was forced by Trump as a distraction from the zero planning be Governmental Agencies in dealing with COIVD-19 which they knew was coming as early as last July.

Sounds like the Airlines,Cruise Lines and the Casino-Hotel Industries forced today's actions. Just more of those failed Supply Side Laffer economic theories that have put us in the ditch once more.

So to all those loyal MAGA's,Your King wants you to load up your Credit Cards or take out a HELCO in order to stay at one of his Hotels or his Friends Casino's. And btw,please send a couple hundred to my reelection Campaign,got Lawyers to pay.

8. One of the bits of information I accepted early on was that treatment for COVID-19 that

included the regular flu vaccine and HIV meds was somewhat effective. Now that more is known, Malaria meds* are showing promise. So let's not get bogged down in language that's used just to prove tRUMP is an idiot. I already know that.
