Second Top 10 Pharma Company Suspends COVID-19 Vaccine Trials After “a Serious Adverse Reaction in a Volunteer”
Today, AstraZeneca announced that it has suspended its COVID-19 vaccine trials when “a serious adverse reaction in a volunteer” triggered the pharma company’s safety protocols.
“The AstraZeneca-Oxford vaccine is seen as one of the most promising of the vaccines against coronavirus that are currently under development,” Al Jazeera wrote on its website.
The drug is in trials involving thousands of people in the United States, Brazil, South Africa and the UK where the patient fell ill.
Earlier, on August 24, in an update addressed to its investors, Novartis admitted that it too had failed to produce a vaccine for COVID-19.
The fact that they weren’t able to produce a COVID-19 vaccine is, in itself, not surprising though. For decades big pharma has been producing flu vaccines but none of the vaccines ever reached an efficiency that is higher than 50%. This means that in general half of the people who get the seasonal flu shot are not protected by it against flu viruses. In May of this year, Bill Gates admitted that this year’s flu vaccine is only 45% efficient.
The fact that Novartis has officially stated that they have failed to produce the vaccine also means that they’re aware that there’s no point in even trying to produce such a vaccine in a short period of time – in months instead of in a decade and longer, which is the time it takes to safely and ethically produce a new drug or vaccine.
If Novartis can’t produce a COVID-19 vaccine there’s no reason, whatsoever, to assume that any other pharma company – including AstraZenica – will be able to do so. For this, simply look at the failed flu vaccine, year after year, decade after decade.
In April Novartis’ CEO Vas Narasimhan stated that hydroxychloroquine provides relief from SARS-CoV-2.
Since then, the World Health Organization has been campaigning aggressively against hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment. Mainly because the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Chinese government want to make hundreds of billions of dollars selling worthless, and potentially very dangerous, COVID-19 vaccines.
