Absolutely no political agenda to kill 13 out of every 14 people on Earth.

Just keep in mind that isn't a signal to reopen a country. One thing that our governments have shown is that they're willing to save the economy as the expensive of human life. Vaccines take a while to make, so I would see this as properganda to get people excited to get back to work.

what are the major milestones that Folding At Home project in terms of that never ending simulation for COVID-19 proteins?

Any updates? haven't been running it, only like 4 weeks back.

My Peasant i5 4690K is bleeding whenever I run FAH at the background.

Just a bs news story from a CEO looking to boost their stock prices...

Phase one is healthy volunteers only and is done purely to test for safety in humans. It does not prove that it is effective as a vaccine.

They also cant just magically jump to phase 3 because they feel like it. Everything has to be peer reviewed and approved by the FDA etc.

old news is old.

They first found the mutation in February and made articles about it, began investigating it in March, and news stories were posted on the web by April and reposts by May. Now some pop sites finally realized it and suddenly everyone is freaking out over old news.
And the clickbait title of the Wash Post article is terrible. Scientists already know why.

Turn off my ad blocker? No, sorry. I guess I just won't read this one.
Here is one of the older articles about it from back in March:

Now they have studied it more and found the reason for it being more infectious and contagious. One of the areas that works with the spike protein has made it stronger and more able to infect cells.

Its still a risk. Lots of these can fail in Phase III testing. I really thought China would be the one to bring the vaccine since they could just start at Phase 3 and say fuck it.

Yeah, I'm not going to try, probably too risky given the current situation.

I am curious how this thread is related to technology of computing performance and computing hobby enthusiasm.

RNA experiments leading in COVID-19 vaccine race, but questions remain about their safety


"The RNA vaccines are being developed by researchers at Imperial College London, the People’s Liberation Army Academy of Military Sciences in China, and three multinational pharma companies — Pfizer, Moderna and CureVac — and their partners.


A U.S. trial of the first potential RNA vaccine is expected to enter the crucial third phase of the human trial this month. This will determine how well it protects against infection and sickness.

Pfizer is planning to begin a test of one of its possible RNA vaccines in a 30,000-person clinical trial by the end of July. However, regulatory approval is still pending.

Safety Concern
One thing that all the potential vaccines share is that they aim to teach our immune system to recognize and neutralize the coronavirus. The newer technologies involve using genetic material such as RNA or DNA to turn the body’s cells into miniature vaccine factories. These new methods allowed scientists to begin designing possible vaccines on a computer as soon as the genetic sequence was shared by researchers in China on Jan. 10 as well as start trail in no time.

While the idea of deploying RNA to fight infectious diseases has attracted scientists for years, it has never moved beyond the experimental stage.

The RNA technology looks promising, but questions remain about its safety, given the lack of evidence in using it in large human populations. It’s also not sure how long it might last as it’s a brand-new technology."
