Unlikely

He's found a vaccine? Truly, there is no limit to the man's talents!

Helenj1977 · 18/03/2020 11:42

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.

Who is is going to pay for it, the Mexicans or the americans?

onalongsabbatical · 18/03/2020 11:54

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?

ihatethecold · 18/03/2020 11:54

This thread is making me chuckle.

Helenj1977 · 18/03/2020 11:55

Maybe he has now tested positive...

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

DGRossetti - great post!

It has been a very long day already but@onalongsabbatical has just made me laugh. Thank you!

onalongsabbatical · 18/03/2020 11:59

@hanahsaunt thanks, I'm glad. Smile

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.

I believe Mexico are putting pressure on him to finish that wall

TheFormidableMrsC · 18/03/2020 12:04

He's found a vaccine

Four very big words.

delilahbucket · 18/03/2020 12:06

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

OhLookHeKickedTheBall · 18/03/2020 12:07

It'll be an amazing vaccine, beautiful, personally founded by trump.

Weregoingonanadventure · 18/03/2020 12:08

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

HonestlyItsFine · 18/03/2020 12:09

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