    Two very important points in this article. First they have a vaccine they believe is effective but won’t be ready even after jumping regulatory hurdles - until November.
    And secondly they can only produce 10 million doses per month!

    ....................,

    A Canadian company has claimed it’s found the cure for the deadly coronavirus.

    Medicago, a biopharmaceutical company in Quebec City funded by the Pentagon, said that it has produced a COVID-19 vaccine just 20 days after receiving the coronavirus’ genetic sequence, using a unique technology that they soon hope to submit for FDA approval.

    The company’s CEO, Bruce Clark, said his company could produce as many as 10 million doses a month.

    If regulatory hurdles can be cleared, Mr Clark said on Thursday, the vaccine could become available as soon as November.

    Great news, share the vaccine and let every country produce their own and do their own trials.
