The Pfizer/Biontech is made by both companies and not solely in the US.

And the reagents that make up the vaccine are sourced from many, many, many different companies across the world. The supply-chain of the vaccine is probably a bigger deal with regards to manufacturing, rather than patents / the country where the final product is made.

I took Sinopharm. Both vaccines went fine with no unwanted side effects. There were some concerns because I use some pills for therapeutic purposes which reduce the strength of my immune system, but it is all good.

looks like Germany agrees with the argument I just made, it's not about the patent its about the safety and complexity of the manufacturing process staying in experienced hands. basically was my last argument a few posts up. maybe Germany politicians read this thread LMAO

Its a bit more nuanced than that, is what I've learned now - the EU is saying that we are exporting vaccines while the US and UK are not. And this is a fact. About half the production is export over here - and we're far from done vaccinating ourselves.

So its a double argument, because naturally, there is also a strong argument to be made for Germany to protect its companies, value, and secrets. I'm not a believer when they say the patent is nothing without the chain around it, because if you know what you need you can set it up.

But there are many more sides to this coin than initially meets the eye. There is also China. Do we really want to give technology away like this? Or do we want to sell it? I mean, its not like China is or has been a savior in this whole episode. Its very strange to see the same Biden that is going to keep a hardline stance on China say he wants to share someone else's secrets with them.

Net result: this was a US publicity stunt that worked out admirably. Read between the lines ;)

You want effective vaccine in as many arms as possible. Money shouldn't even enter the equation.

not sure why other countries would expect UK/US to ship them vaccines until their own countries are taken care of... UK you still have to be 42 yrs old to get vaccine. not enough for everyone yet there.

once enough for everyone I expect them to start shipping to other countries...

You want effective vaccine in as many arms as possible. Money shouldn't even enter the equation.

they are selling it dirt cheap to other countries, and WHO is paying those dirt cheap prices for those countries that can't afford it. 2.2 billion doses from pfizer alove this year, and double next year... i mean really it would take longer to build more facilities than to just scale up pfizer and moderna where they currently sit imo.

How do you scale up facilities that are already at capacity?

ask them, because they have done so multiple times already. (possibly building addons to current building next door, I have no idea though). pfizer and moderna both said multiple times they were able to scale production more than expected.

Why are they still at capacity? How do they increase capacity without building more facilities? I mean good job Pfizer for falling short of production forecasted last year and increasing production by ~5% in the past two months by building more facilities, but, to answer my own question, you’re going to need to build more facilities lol

all respect I think you need to test your contentions with google before making conjecture

call me crazy, but if you sign on to ctap and use global facilities rather than the few that you own, you’re going to produce more vaccine thanks to the additional production capacity, no?

And yet every vaccine deal that was made, involved money. Copious amounts of it.

It's also nearly all made from public research by acadamia, not commercial r&d. So it should be.

Here are Portugal's updated numbers this week.

Screenshot from 2021-05-02 13-50-49.pngScreenshot from 2021-05-03 14-05-44.pngScreenshot from 2021-05-04 14-22-23.pngScreenshot from 2021-05-05 02-09-35.pngScreenshot from 2021-05-06 02-09-06.pngScreenshot from 2021-05-07 23-23-59.pngScreenshot from 2021-05-08 23-23-38.pngScreenshot from 2021-05-09 16-49-14.png

The pics are, in order, last day updated numbers and every day since then until yesterday's numbers (click for full picture), and the below numbers are current totals, week totals and daily averaged this week:

- 22313 active cases --- 1266 less --- 181 less per day
- 800277 recovered --- 3556 more --- 508 more per day
- 16992 fatalities --- 15 more --- 2 more per day
- 839582 confirmed infected --- 2305 more --- 329 more per day

- 10522254 tests taken --- 310209 more --- 34468 more per day but was last updated May 8th and it includes antigen tests as well
- 3884052 vaccinated --- 560370 more --- last updated today but that corresponds to 2814783 1st doses + 1069269 2nd doses
- 268 hospitalized --- 43 less --- 6 less per day
- 74 in ICU --- 13 less --- 2 less per day

The main report wasn't published on several days, so i had to use the situation report instead.

Daily fatalities rose slightly (+3 VS previous week in total) and the week average has dropped below 10 for the 6th consecutive week. New cases dropped more noticeably and the R number dropped from 0.98 to 0.92 on average. Roughly 28% of Portugal's population has received the vaccine's 1st dose and roughly 10.6% have received both doses.

looks like delaying the second shot worked out better than anyone thought. neat.

now we need everyone to get mRNA vaccines so another Seychelle's doesn't happen.

- 245 hospitalized --- 23 less --- 3 less per day
- 76 in ICU --- 2 more --- less than 1 per day

The main report wasn't published on several days, so i had to use the situation report instead.

Week fatalities was the exact same as last week and we also had another day with zero fatalities: the week average has dropped below 10 for the 7th consecutive week. New cases increased a bit and the R number increased from from 0.92 to 0.95 on average. Roughly 30% of Portugal's population has received the vaccine's 1st dose and roughly 13% have received both doses.

This is a critical moment, IMO: mess up the response to this and the numbers will "explode".

Good luck, Taiwan.
Well, it started with a local airline and a sloppy quarantine hotel...

It looks like Taiwan had so few cases of COVID19, that no one wanted to get a vaccine. It sorta makes sense: they're an island nation, it should have been relatively easy to keep COVID19 contained.

But now that mistakes have been made, its important to move into vaccinations as quickly as possible. Community transmission means that the COVID19 spread can no longer be tracked adequately by contact tracing. So the exponential curve starts now for that nation...

So are they locking down there? Or is everyone just doing their thing not worrying about it still? If the latter, I do hope they have some mRNA vaccines on order.

mRNA is the only way out of this mess imo, it's not about death rates anymore its about economies shutting down, and mRNA is the only one that can stop the latter.

Not yet, but people are doing it on their own, so to say.
So far not too bad outside greater Taipei.


No vaccine really, 600k does of Astra Zeneca from WHO for 23 million people...
China is blocking anything else.
Local vaccines expected in July, non mRNA types.

New cases in my county with a population of 368,000 have stayed well under 50 per day for a while. It was 13 new cases yesterday. I know 368,000 is a small sample of the USA but it's relevant to me because it's where I live and I've cut way down on travel.

Well, here is an update for the UK on the day that phase 3 easing has begun, the 4th and final phase is currently scheduled for 21st June and at that point there will be no restrictions in force, pretty much everything is open indoors and outdoors from today with the odd exceptions if you live in Scotland, Wales or Northern Ireland, thousands of people took off today for Portugal for a holiday as it's one of very few destinations on our "Green" list which basically means no quarantine when you return.

ATM there could be a slight risk to that 21st June deadline as we have seen more cases of the Indian variant but I guess we will know if that one has any real impact over the coming weeks ...............

Ah yes, entitled people going on holiday, because nothing bad can happen now...

I will admit I'm itching to go somewhere too, but I will make damn well sure I've been dosed up on the vaccine first and I'm not going to a party place to get wasted.

I'm hoping to go to UK in July still. I will be at peak immunity with Pfizer two shot vaccine, which protects against all the strains, and I will be double masking as soon as I enter the airport (as well as wearing my gaming glasses (which cover the side of the eyes too like goggles) I'm convinced covid is an aerosol, and if its just floating there and you walk into a cloud of it and blink you can get it from eyes, I can't prove this, but I am being extra careful (if I look goofy so what who cares, no one ever talks to each other at an airport anyway)... then when in England I will show my negative PCR test that I took in USA within 72 hours, and then I will be allowed to proceed to a small village my relatives live at, where I intend to get naked in their garden, bag all my clothes, spray my luggage and leave it outside, shower, put on fresh clothes, gargle with mouthwash... and continue to wear gloves and mask for ten days when not outside my room. I don't need anyone to check up on me, I intend to stay in my room for ten days, cause last thing I want is to get anyone sick.

I intend to stay for two months, so ten days is worthy sacrifice. My job is remote too in the Fall, so I may end up staying for 3 months then flying home. We will see, max travel visa is 90 days.

IMO though the other vaccines need to go. Pfizer has saved the day. Moderna still hasn't released their numbers on some variants which worries me as its been a long time since Pfizer did... Pfizer is king... TSMC should order 46 million shots of Pfizer in honor of their insane profits LOL jk that's a shame China is blocking Pfizer, I wonder what their reasoning is?
