3. I expect ours to get approved mid-October...

It doesn't matter if it actually works, or even if it carries life-threatening side-effects, as long as those aren't known by November 3rd. That way, Trump can tell everyone the crisis is "over," and it's his administration that's responsible for "solving" it. And lots of voters will lap it up, relieved that they can finally go back to bars and hair salons.

5. China already has one

approved for use by the military.

There is probably a better than not chance that the first major vaccine to hit the market is going to originate from outside of the United States. It's going to be very interesting if Trump has to go begging to China or the EU to let him have doses of the vaccine.

I don't think we're going to be at the front of the line on that one.

I'll add that we know China has been doing research on coronaviruses, which makes sense considering they were the epicenter of SARS. Wouldn't be surprised if they were't working on a vaccine for years and were able to tweek it specifically for this one.

35. Exclusive: Russia prepares for world's first approval of a Covid-19 vaccine by mid-August, but quest

Moscow (CNN)Russia intends to be the first in the world to approve a coronavirus vaccine, in less than two weeks -- despite concerns about its safety, effectiveness and over whether the country has cut essential corners in development, CNN has learned.

Russian officials told CNN they are working toward a date of August 10 or earlier for approval of the vaccine, which has been created by the Moscow-based Gamaleya Institute.

It will be approved for public use, with frontline healthcare workers getting it first, they said.

"It's a Sputnik moment," said Kirill Dmitriev, head of Russia's sovereign wealth fund, which is financing Russian vaccine research, referring to the successful 1957 launch of the world's first satellite by the Soviet Union.

"Americans were surprised when they heard Sputnik's beeping. It's the same with this vaccine. Russia will have got there first," he added.

39. Story from March on Russia testing a vaccine

https://tass.com/society/1132751

MOSCOW, March 20. /TASS/. Russia’s sanitary watchdog, the Federal Service for Surveillance on Consumer Rights Protection and Human Wellbeing, has launched tests of a vaccine against the novel coronavirus.
"In Russia in order to prevent and control the COVID-19 epidemic the State Research Center of Virology and Biotechnology Vector of Rospotrebnadzor has swiftly developed prototypes of vaccines based on six various technological platforms," the watchdog said.
Experts have managed to create vaccines based on broadly used recombinant viral vectors of flu.
"When new vaccines are developed in modern biology it is necessary to carry out in vivo tests on sensitive laboratory animals," Rospotrebnadzor said.

The defence ministry did not say whether the vaccine was in fact effective but a doctor working on the trials said the volunteers were now protected against the coronavirus.
