Updated Moderna timeline. Looks like Pfizer is the only hope for a more broad vaccine rollout this year.


Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel says the Cambridge biotech will probably know in November whether its COVID-19 vaccine is safe and effective and could deliver 100 million doses to the US government in the “first few months of 2021.”

Wow, this statement by the judge and this thread. You Trump
Guys happy with voter suppression? I wonder which other countries do this . Like I said , Trump is anti American and as far right as they come .

This is so dumb. A notoriously inefficient outfit like USPS gets changes made to have them clean-up their act and it becomes psychotic "voter suppression."

People have weeks to get a absentee ballot. They have lots of time to get it mailed with time to spare. The USPS is not meant to double as anew voting system as the Dem pols are trying to make it (so they can scam the vote with unrequested ballots)

Here is the "voter suppression" from the court document omg:



 All operations must meet our 24-hour clock commitment

 All trips will depart on time (Network, Plant and Delivery); late trips
are no longer authorized or accepted

 Extra trips are no longer authorized or accepted

 There must be proper annotation in the scanner, if a Contractor Failure
occurs

 All PVS/HCR drives must be notified that trips depart on time

 Function 3 must start on time and end on time and we must make
scheduled DUT

 Carriers must begin on time, leave for the street on time, and return on
time

 Carriers must make the final dispatch of value; no additional
transportation will be authorized to dispatch mail to the Plant after the
intended dispatch

 The right mail must go on the right truck – every time

 ALL EMPLOYEES have an essential role with trips departing on time

You don’t actually believe what you just wrote do you ? You can’t be this naive and blind . Everyone knows what they are trying to do and the judge just agreed with most common sense people . Don’t you find it funny that this is all happening right before an election where mail will be used more than ever to vote ? Why weren’t all these changes implemented months or years ago then ; funny how that works out .
Mail changes aside ; how do you explain the misinformation on voting that is being mailed out in mass numbers to people .

No "everyone" doesn't know "what they are trying to do". What many do know is that common sense has left the people running the blue cities and states. Most GOP will be voting in person so their absentee ballots don't vanish. The people who want to game the vote are relying on unrequested ballots mailed out to people who are long dead, moved etc. Dems have a knack for delaying counts and coming up with extra ballots (see Maine and Al Franken)

Could be a game-changer for football spectators, concert-goers, shoppers, schoolchildren --virtually everyone.

Largely useless invention. Very few transmissions come from surfaces/bodies - the vast majority are person to person via coughs, sneezes or even close/loud talking, as the virus is carried via virus-laden droplets and if decent dose of those are inhaled, the other person can become infected - one can't "disinfect" one's lungs/respiratory system, when that person is infectious. Either maintain distancing or wear a mask - it's that simple.

Linked is a paper from the National Academy of Sciences which concludes mask wearing is the most effective means to prevent COVID-19 transmission. Brief abstract:

By analyzing the trend and mitigation measures in Wuhan, China, Italy, and New York City, from January 23 to May 9, 2020, we illustrate that the impacts of mitigation measures are discernable from the trends of the pandemic. Our analysis reveals that the difference with and without mandated face covering represents the determinant in shaping the pandemic trends in the three epicenters. This protective measure alone significantly reduced the number of infections, that is, by over 78,000 in Italy from April 6 to May 9 and over 66,000 in New York City from April 17 to May 9. Other mitigation measures, such as social distancing implemented in the United States, are insufficient by themselves in protecting the public. We conclude that wearing of face masks in public corresponds to the most effective means to prevent interhuman transmission, and this inexpensive practice, in conjunction with simultaneous social distancing, quarantine, and contact tracing, represents the most likely fighting opportunity to stop the COVID-19 pandemic. Our work also highlights the fact that sound science is essential in decision-making for the current and future public health pandemics.

Great post, but since I don't think you've been active on this thread, I've probably made at least 25-30 posts since early March touting the effectiveness (not perfection, but very effective) of masks in reducing transmissions, including citing numerous scientific studies, but sadly very few of the science deniers seem to have been convinced. Maybe they'll listen to you...

just replying to the last non political post.

Excess Patient Visits for Cough and Pulmonary Disease at a Large US Health System in the Months Prior to the COVID-19 Pandemic: Time-Series Analysis

A significantly higher number of patients with respiratory complaints and diseases starting in late December 2019 and continuing through February 2020 suggests community spread of SARS-CoV-2 prior to established clinical awareness and testing capabilities. This provides a case example of how health system analytics combined with EHR data can provide powerful and agile tools for identifying when future trends in patient populations are outside of the expected ranges.

If #'s has lost credibility for some of his posts then most everyone in this thread has lost significantly more.

Truthfully talk like this is what has ruined this thread. I mean if you disagree with #'s, then argue the point, find the data, do the work. Resorting to this type of "#'s loses crebility" post is lame.

In case you haven't figured it out. There are 4 or 5 posters who constantly troll #'s - generally in weather and scientific type of threads. It's likely because they are poking at him and trying to get him to lash out - as he generally does not troll back at them like the rest of us might. You can probably guess who some of them are by just observing this thread. It's pretty much a shame that the Mods have let this continue - as he seems like a really good guy and poster, regardless of political leanings.

The way this virus is mutating down might not need a vaccine in 2021.

Modding on this forum has always been a complete joke. Such an easy solution and they just let it go.

The number of cases in ISRAEL , FRANCE and SPAIN are exploding while US continues on its downward trend. Good sign for the US. Israel , with a population almost identical to the state of NJ, had over 6000 new cases yesterday and has a current a 7 day average of near 5000. For NJ, the worst daily new cases were in April, where the 7 day average never exceeded 4000 cases, with the highest 1 day total of approx. 4300. Bad news for Israel, but not sure how this is affecting the death rate so far. Haven't read much about what is going on in Israel regarding COVID, but will have to dig a little deeper to see what is happening there.

None of the states including 2 where republicans win often have had problems with it. Donnie votes by mail.


I believe the issue will be that their will be a much larger amount of people voting by mail.

Also, will the mail in ballots all be tabulated by the end of election night so we can declare a winner or will they be counting for weeks after the election is over? With all the civil unrest going on, mail in voting can become a nightmare for this country.

This is all orchestrated chaos by leftist. It’s right out of The Playbook.
