Researchers fast-track coronavirus vaccine by skipping key animal testing first

Another reason to avoid any deadly new vaccines pimped at the behest of the deep state's pharmaterrorists: Researchers fast-track coronavirus vaccine by skipping key animal testing first | 13 March 2020 | A clinical trial for an experimental coronavirus vaccine has begun recruiting participants in Seattle, but researchers did not first show that the vaccine triggered an immune response in animals, as is normally required.

"Often our decision to do so seems unwise in retrospect." Typically, vaccine development can take 15 to 20 years, start to finish, Mark Feinberg, president and CEO of the International AIDS Vaccine Initiative, told Stat News.

North Dakota and Washington state are outstanding. | 11 March 2020 | Joe Biden took a major step toward clinching the Democratic nomination on Tuesday with dominant wins in a string of states, including the night's biggest prize: Michigan.
