Vaccine covid progress - hope of the world

Last Update: August 16, 2020

As the backwash effect of Covid 19 continues, experts everywhere are putting their hopes on an effective vaccine as the only hope for a light at the end of a long tunnel. Forward thinking researchers have constructed a table of most promising candidates. They are shown here:.

A positive aspect in the US toward leading the world out of this abyss is the cross thinking of research personnel and their ideas which helps build effective solutions. A composite of medical companies are involved. The ideas also take different approaches to quenching this disease so that no aspect is left uncovered.

Let us hope that this situation can be quickly resolved. The world has been out of spin balance for a while. We are so caught up in information overload. The information needs tempering with real worries, Such occurrences always result in a stronger result for individuals and society. The new insight gained will fill volumes of media. Our social apps and media will be really put to work!

Already there are hardships everywhere. I had a family member who had to catch an international flight last week. There were only 50 cars in the parking lot at departures. There are no porters to carry luggage. One has to find means to transport their own baggage. Hand sanitizing and distance requirements put an extreme burden on travel. Wheelchairs were nonexistent. If you bring your own,it betters be motorized or someone must travel with you to do the pushing... It is also not pleasant to travel with a mask on for extended periods of time In addition there are quarantine requirements at most destinations, some up to two weeks!.

There is the constant threat of risk to family and to society as a whole. Doctors and medical practitioners are hogtied with worry. Lawyers and the threat of liability lurk around every interactiont

This is the situation as of mid 2020. May you and all of us be blessed with speedy and effective solutions, going forward!

I think you may find that over 150 countries and many scientists and epidemiologists worldwide are involved with the vaccine programme. Which include US (but certainly not leading?)

The UK has indeed discovered that current vaccines under trial may have a short antibody shelf life and thus by adding different components and vaccines (which include symptomatic treatment) may (for the time being) offer some form of resistance longer term.

Yea I think the first vaccines will be like the flu jab and only work for a season, but an annual injection is a small price to pay to get it under control.

I certainly do hope they find a vaccine for this horrible Covid thing sometime in the near future. Too many deaths; too many illnesses; it is not how things should be.

I'm glad I'm old enough to have had many years of "the good life" before this pandemic started. Praying for a vaccine, since I can't really do anything else to help.

Yea travel seems to be the worst affected at the minute, with things locally having a type of normality. Apparently the UK has ordered enough vaccinations that if they were all successful, which they won't be, to give everyone 5 shots. Apparently the different vaccines will actually do different things, from prevention or reducing the effects etc. I also heard the other day that they expect everyone to need two injections.
