Covid19 vaccines, price leaked, the world is not supposed to know

 Contractual prices of Covid19 vaccines leaked by a tweet by a junior Belgium minister, from a report by AFP posted in CNA.

The tweeted information gave the following price per dose for each vaccine maker, in either euros or US dollars according to the respective contract:

1. AstraZeneca: €1.78

2. Johnson & Johnson: US$8.50

3. Sanofi/GlaxoSmithKline: €7.56

4. Pfizer/BioNTech: €12.00

5. Curevac: €10.00

6. Moderna: US$18.00

Separately, on Thursday, the European Commission announced a seventh contract with US biotech company Novavax for 100 million doses, the price of which was not given under the confidentiality agreement.

How much will third world countries have to pay now that they know how much the rich western countries are paying? Would the third world countries be paying more than the rich western countries?

It is good to show that they are selling to their rich western countries first. The rest of the world can wait. And they will accuse China for trying to capitalise on offering its vaccines to the rest of the world, especially the third world, and would mischievously allege that China did not do it for altruistic purpose but to gain political influence. And they would keep their vaccines for the white countries and maybe later when they have had their shares, sell it at higher price to the rest of the world. Third world countries that cannot afford, sorry, no money no talk. They would not do it for altruistic reasons but for profit. 

And some silly third world countries would believe their lies and attack China for offering the vaccines to them when the western countries would not or at a higher price and put them at the end of the queue. China is offering to the third world countries first but would be accused as a political move, bad, by the whites.

This leak is another act of God to stop profiteering and taking advantage of third world countries. Now it is difficult to make the third world subsidise the rich western countries for these vaccines. God is great to make sure they cannot cover up this ruse to exploit the poorer people of the world. It is all within HIS grasp and plan.

Britain is now the origin of this new virus. It shall be called British Virus. If they cannot contain it and allow it to spread to the rest of the world, they must be made to compensate the rest of the world.

It is already detected in Italy.

European countries already banned flights from the UK. Not the Americans, no cases yet, no need to worry. Like Trump said before, only one case, will go away miraculously, now more than 17m and hitting 18m tomorrow.

COVID-19: Coronavirus Can Mutate, Vaccines Can't!

Nations across Europe have imposed UK travel bans over a new strain of the Coronavirus found in late September in Wales. This new strain is 70% more transmissable. It has already spread throughout UK, except North Ireland.

According to UK experts, it is known to have been exported to the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Spain and as far south as Australia.

It may also have been exported to South Africa and India, and other countries that are popular travel/working destinations for the British people.

UK's Health Secretary Matt Hancock said that the new strain "was out of control. We have got to get it under control", admitting that this was "an incredibly difficult end to, frankly, an awful year".

Ireland, Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands and Belgium are all halting flights. The measures are temporary but a more co-ordinated approach will be determined by the EU today.

UK PM Boris Johnson has introduced a new Tier 4 Restrictions for those areas affected and cancelled the relaxation of rules for Christmas celebrations announced earlier.

The new strain is said to be a mutated variant of the COVID-19 which is totally different from those found in Wuhan, China. It is also known now that the variant that is found in Europe are different from those found in China. This is evidence that China did not spread the Covid19 to Europe and UK, and by extension, also the US.

Now, let's talk about the newly minted vaccines. The questions every user or jab receiver should be asking are:

1. How effective will the vaccines be?

2. How long will the vaccines last once inside the body?

3. Will the mutated coronavirus render the vaccines ineffective?

4. Can I sue for compensation if anything untoward happened to me after I have been vaccinated?

5. What is the government's stand on the above?

Trump would love this new dangerous virus to spread to the US so that he can declare a state of emergency and introduce martial law. Then Biden can wait for as long as he wants to be the next president while Trump rules in the White House.

Golden opportunity for Trump. So why should he ban British entering US with the virus?

Chua Chin Leng aka redbean said...

Boris said this dangerous virus is 'Out of Control' in UK and spreading overseas to as far as India. Why nothing in the US? Are the Americans hiding something?

The UK is in deep shit. Brexit is in a mess. The UK will sink further into oblivion. It will even break up into pieces.

Meanwhile, Trump and his gang are thinking of declaring emergency rule by invoking unrest and riots. They are openly discussing this course of action, with Michael Flynn stoking the flames. It is not difficult to cause a riot, since guns are so plentiful and ready to be used. This is a chance for those with guns to put their weapons to good use, otherwise keeping them inside closet is a wasted reason to own a gun. Right?

By then, Biden will be 'President in waiting', like our friend Anwar Ibrahim up North. Democracy works really well in the USA as everyone can see.

To carry the angmoh balls, they still won't ban travel from the UK even as the new London mutant virus is spreading quickly . . .

How much is S'pore paying per dose ?

Anonymous said...

I think Singapore will not reveal the price because those contracts are said to be confidential.

That would be reason enough for them to keep it a secret. After all, they already said it will be free for all citizens. But of course we will be paying for it in other ways. They already said there is no such thing as a free lunch. Go figure!

Has Singapore imported any of the new UK virus? May be UK ang mohs have already brought that new UK virus to Singapore over the last three months? Maybe the 13 + 3 cases of a strange, funny, common infections are from the new UK virus?

MOH better get their scientists to work harder to check this out. Stop being reactive for once.

Anonymous said...

19 new imported cases of Covid-19 on Sunday. The daily virus importing business is catching up fast. The figures have quadrupled. The This is good news for Singaporeans down the road.

This is Christmas gifts from India, UK, Europe and USA.

Sydney is badly hit. Now Victoria also kena hit. Suspect these must be the new variant from UK, their mother country.

Good news is that other Australia cities and states are closing down on Sydney, knowing how dangerous it is.

Gooder news is that the European countries finally banned flights from UK. The Brits is hitting the wall in Brexit, now this deadly new virus and still wanting to send their limping flooded cabins HMS Elizabeth to threaten China in the SC Sea.

All is happening to the Brits and the evil Anglo Saxons in the 5 eyes group. When time for retribution to strike, they cannot hide, cannot run.

12.03pm anon, u be happy they not charging you lar. When it's free it's paid by taxpayers and if they charge u and u paid 2 times. Be grateful they charge u once only. If they don't make it free I don't think the one million plus low wage FT will take the injection rendering the whole exercise in effective. So they can't make it free for FT and charge sinkies right?

Right Anon 12.56

Low wage FT will not take the injection if it is not free. But if they do not take the injection it is a very great risk to take. They will not take that risk. Therefore low wage FT will have to be given free jabs..

But if FT gets free jabs, and Sinkies have to pay for it, what do you think? And what will the Government think about what Sinkies will think?

After all, who is going to pay for all these free stuff? The ball is still in Sinkie's court. Sinkies and their kids will also have to pay for the S$100 billion taken out of the reserves.

Covid-20 - The New British Disease

European Union officials will be discussing at GMT 10:00 of a co-ordinated response to the new, more infectious coronavirus variant in the UK (to be known as the British Covid-20) which has already led many countries to impose travel bans.

UK Health officials say the new variant is up to 70% more transmissible, and there is no evidence that it is not more deadly.

There is also no evidence yet to suggest that it does not react differently to vaccines.

UK Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the new variant was "getting out of control" while Denmark, Italy and the Netherlands announced they had already detected it.

The speed at which governments have announced their bans on travellers from the UK shows the scale of the alarm.

More and more countries are imposing travel band to/fro UK. So far the countries that have taken the precautionary measures to impose UK travel ban include Argentina, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Chile, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Iran, Israel, Italy, Kuwait, Morocco, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia, Spain, Switzerland, and Turkey.

The new variant was first detected in September. In November it made up around a quarter of cases in London. This reached nearly two-thirds of cases in mid-December.

Three things are coming together that mean it is attracting attention:

1. It is rapidly replacing other versions of the virus.

2. It has mutations that affect part of the virus likely to be important.

3. Some of those mutations have already been shown in the lab to increase the ability of the virus to infect cells.

All of these come together to build a case for a virus that can spread more easily. However, we do not have absolute certainty. Nobody will ever have.

New strains can become more common simply by being in the right place at the right time - such as Amsterdam, Brussels, Copenhagen, The Hague, Hongkong, London, New York, Singapore and Sydney.

This variant is unusually highly mutated. The most likely explanation is it emerged in a patient with a weakened immune system that was unable to beat the virus.

There is no evidence yet to suggest the variant does not make the infection more deadly, and whether the hastily developed vaccines will be able to work effectively against it.

If the virus so changes until it is able to dodge the full effect of the vaccine, then "vaccine escape" happens, and this is the most frightening concern to humans.

Lesson learned: Don't belittle a tiny thing. It can be smarter than millions of scientific brains combined. It can also make smart politicians into blue-ass flies, running round and round in circles, like clowns in the circuses trying to conjure up tricks to make us laugh.
