California lab says it discovered coronavirus vaccine in 3 hours

https://finance.yahoo.com/news/california-lab-says-discovered-coronavirus-123356925.html

"An American biotech company says it created a coronavirus vaccine three hours after getting access to the virus' genetic sequence on Jan. 9, and now scientists are racing to get the vaccine on the market in record time."

"Inovio Pharmaceuticals is based in Pennsylvania, but scientists in its laboratory in San Diego made the discovery."

"Another U.S. company, Maryland-based Novavax, is aiming to make a coronavirus vaccine in as little as three months, although such vaccines can take years to develop. The company made an Ebola vaccine in 90 days."

1. Uh-huh....sure they did...

I am sorry but these things do NOT work like the fucking movie "Outbreak"and they did NOT develop an actual vaccine in 3 goddamn hours. This is the kind of bullshit attention grabbing and nonsense that allows the general public to believe that vaccinations cause autism, that science can and will solve everything in minutes or hours at worse and that we do not all have to change to prevent our society from collapsing in the next decade plus...

Think I am full of shit and that this HAS to be true?
Remember Theranos?
Elizabeth Holmes?
Enough said...

The silicon valley principles of "move fast and break things" sounds swell, until you start realizing that the consequences in health care to that approach are dead people not just old paradigms of manufacturing or distribution. Things like vaccine development are NOT achieved in days or even weeks, and ready for deployment to humans in 90 days? Only if you have no ethics and do not care about side effects, potential fatalities or liability.

I call bullshit on them and also shame.
Nice 15 minutes for someone, someone who we probably hear about being imprisoned down the road...
