My understanding is that there are about 100 vaccines beign developped that may have a hope of being succesful. Russia has been cutting corners in an apparent "race" to get the first useful vaccine. The WH has been promising a vaccine by the end of the year, which may occur, but odds are against it, unless corners get cut.No. I'm saying the exact opposite thus my measles reference. The very purpose of a vaccine is to prevent infection, create herd immunity, and prevent the spread of the disease (like the measles). WHO, CDC, academics, and scientists all seem to agree it's possible to reduce the spread to manageable levels through a vaccine. Biden and Harris are saying not to trust the vaccine because it was created under Trump and Pence, which is simply irresponsible politicicizing. If the vaccine is approved 11/4/2020 Biden and Harris will take full credit and ask everyone to get vaccinated...so will Trump. CDC, WHO are both saying reinfection would be exceptionally rare and the current anecdotal cases are much more likely to be attributed to testing...contamination of the sample or false +/-.
Like I said before, tens of thousands of vaccine study participants exposed to gross amounts of virus and not one hospitalization or death. Yet this is being pitched as a debilitating disease or death sentence for the masses. Data just does not bear that out as a fact. Terrible disease but manageable for the overwhelming majority who contract it.
Most likely is that there will be about 4-6 vaccines develpped in early 2021. Once that occurs, it will be tough for others to get ongoing funding, but that may be proplematic if the virus mutates and vaccines need to be altered.
