Covid-19 vaccine could be ready in some form for distribution by the end of 2020


Dr. Carlos del Rio, an Emory University professor of medicine, told CNBC on Friday that a Covid-19 vaccine could be ready in some form for distribution by the end of 2020 but cautioned that it’s an unprecedented timeline.

“I am cautiously optimistic,” del Rio said on “Power Lunch,” echoing comments earlier that day from immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci. “We are developing at a pace that has never been done before.”

In a 65-day window, researchers have isolated and identified the virus and begun testing a potential vaccine on humans, del Rio said.
“That has never, ever occurred before,” he said.

I'd call that "Warp Speed"

1. I tend to think we will have good treatment options well before a broadly effective vaccine.

Not saying it is not coming, but given the unknowns, it may be a while.

Not saying herd immunity is real or not, not sure we know that either at this point.
