Obviously not him. The update is with the food and drug administration.

I don't know, he's just a natural at it. He's very good at science. He could have been a scientist. He's a great scientist. He gets it. he does science bigly. Science is kinda a thing, you see. And it's his thing that he does. In fact he does great science. He's got all the elements of medical.

Is it a bigly vaccine, will it be bigly enough for all of us or is it just for his Americans?
Will he call it the Covfefe vaccine? When he invented the word Covfefe, was he predicting Covid-19 with his bigly genius brain?

They really aren't mutually exclusive. You should hear what they said about Alexander Flemings combover.

Loving it, DGR Grin

There are some early trials going on in China and in two locations in the US. Very early. They involve previously unexposed victims volunteers being injected with the trial vaccine. There is then a wait. Then they are exposed to the virus. Then they are monitored. Then all this has to be peer-reviewed and replicated.

Small numbers at this early stage.

The testing started several days ago. Don't expect its release any time soon, it will be a very long time yet.

I thought a German company were also working on a couple very promising vaccines?

Vaccines take at least 12 months- if you rush them.
I'd rather they announced an effective treatment at this stage. Fingers crossed.
