The FDA is a regulatory jungle. People wonder why prescription meds cost so much. Some part of it is the bureaucratic web and testing that a company has to navigate to bring a new treatment to market. I posted on here multiple times months ago that IF this truly were such a dire situation that we needed to shut the country down, that we could produce and deliver a vaccine within a couple of months. This is STILL slower than we should be doing it. The trial vaccines should be going in to nursing home patients and first responders in large numbers by now. In my town, we've had large numbers of cops infected. One woman who knew she was positive lied to the cops when she was arrested on a drug charge. She ended up infecting multiple cops. They haven't released the total infected but I heard that a fourth of the force was in quarantine at one point.
