Chinese Scientists ‘99% Confident’ Their Coronavirus Vaccine Will Work

These are the raw materials for COVID-19 vaccine—bags full of biological cells soon to have an inactivated or dead virus added to them. Churned like butter in a bioreactor, this is one of the most promising candidates in the global race for a vaccine. It’s made by Sinovac—a biotech company on the outskirts of Beijing. … Last week, they published results in the academic journal Science which showed the vaccine protects monkeys from infection by the coronavirus, and the scientists here are optimistic that it will protect humans too.

    They survived the shot. Big deal. Now let’s see how they are in a year or two.

    A bunch of biological cells infused with a virus that may or may not be dead. No mention of the actual ingredients or what biological cells or possible side effects . Just shut up and let us experiment on you.

    It is my understanding that the SARS-CoV-2 virus has not yet been purified. How the devil are they going to create an effective vaccine from some strands of RNA when they don’t have a purified sample of the virus?
