The chief adviser to Operation Warp Speed, the Trump administration’s program investing billions of dollars into discovering a coronavirus vaccine, says media scrutiny of his stock ownership may delay a vaccine or make its discovery less likely because it is distracting him from his work.

i just glanced and their stock has been a dial tone...

relatively flat and it is owned by everyone and their brother (funds, etfs, etc.)

this looks like a non-issue

although i'm not sure it has looked like these producers are doing this on a non-profit basis

"Johnson & Johnson announced Wednesday it will develop and deliver 100 million doses of its potential coronavirus vaccine to the U.S. in a deal with the government valued at more than $1 billion.

The agreement is through BARDA, the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority, in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Defense.

The company's SARS-CoV-2 investigational vaccine, will be provided at a "global not-for-profit basis for emergency pandemic use," the pharmaceutical giant said. The U.S. government can opt to purchase an additional 200 million doses, according to the announcement.
i would say that whoever does get this right will use it as street cred (and the technology) going forward to possibly secure deals that could be money makers

Sweden.  The Swedish response had many people scratching their heads.   On the other hand, is anybody really worried about the longer term outcomes in Sweden?   No.  

Is anybody really worried about the spread of COVID-19 through the flyover/Mid-western/MAGA states?  Yes.   Brazil?  Yes.   How this virus will eventually propagate through the poorest countries in the world?  Yes.  

This is like anthropogenic climate disruption and regional nuclear war.  The advanced countries where people play well together and collectively know how to manage risk will do just fine.  The rest?  Not so much.

I don't particularly have an opinion on it either, but it's always a little different when comparing Scandinavia to the rest of Europe for a number of reasons.  Anyhow, their rates are much higher than those of their Scandinavian neighbors.  For example: Sweden has 1.7 times the population of Denmark, 5.6 times the confirmed cases, and 9.3 times the amount of COVID-related deaths.  Compared to Norway (which, to be fair, is more isolated), Sweden has 1.94 times the population, 8.7 times the confirmed cases, and 22.5 times the deaths.

the swedes aren't idiots, but they didn't do what other people thought they should do

so they're in political thought jail

as i understand it, they have very large care homes vs their neighbors

the virus hit them early so the damage was done

at that point they made a measured response/decision to play the long game

but we can still sit on our high horses and pick them apart...for now

How Many People in the U.S. Are Hospitalized With COVID-19? Who Knows?
The Trump administration told hospitals to stop reporting data to the CDC, and report it to HHS instead. Vice President Mike Pence said the information would continue to be released publicly. It hasn’t worked out as promised.

My problem with influenza vaccinations is that they are not very effective.  Well, more effective than modern marriage (~60% > ~50%).
