Game 
Currently, the following companies are racing to make the COVID vaccine:
  • Moderna
  • CanSino Biologics
  • Inovio
  • Sinovac
  • BioNTech Pfizer
  • Univ. of Oxford
  • AstraZeneca
  • Novavax
  • Gamaleya Research Institute¬†
  • CureVac
  • Clover Biopharmaceuticals
  • Johnson & Johnson
  • Sanofi,GlaxoSmithKline
  • Merck & Co.
according to the website I took the list from (https://www.biopharmadive.com/news/coron...es/579122/) Sanofi are ahead. but who knows? what do you think?

P.S.
yeah its political since whoever gets it first can guarantee a vaccine to its country, or to who ever pays the most Smile

Depends if his death is related to the vaccine. if so, they're probably going to cover it up. there's too much money involved!

truth. sounds like they might have had the placebo anyway (allegedly)

Developing a vaccine within a year is dangerous, it needs about 2/3 years to means test, and about 3/4 years to manufacture and distribute. You're look at about 7 years for an effective vax. I can't imagine the anti-vax crew will get any smaller in this time either.
