Pre-orders of COVID-19 vaccine top five billion

first_imgChina, Russia Clinical tests of two Chinese vaccine candidates — Sinovac and Sinopharm — are well underway but only a few international partnerships have been announced, the one with Brazil and a possible one with Indonesia.Russia said 20 nations have pre-ordered one billion doses of Sputnik V and that with foreign partners it would be able to produce 500 million doses a year in five countries. Britain, Japan, Brazil Britain, because of Brexit, is negotiating a separate pre-order of 250 million doses from four developers.Japan is counting on 490 million doses from three suppliers including 250 million from Novavax of the United States.Japanese pharmaceutical giant Takeda bought the rights to a Novavax vaccine for Japan, which has funded the research. It would be produced locally.Brazil chose a similar model, ordering 100 million doses from AstraZeneca, and partnering with China’s Sinovac to produce 120 millions of “CoronaVac,” which is already undergoing testing with Brazilians. Europe: 700 million dosesTwo vaccine developers — Oxford/AztraZeneca and Sanofi/GSK — have signed or are in advanced negotiations with the European Commission to provide a combined 700 million vaccine doses. US: 700 million doses President Donald Trump has launched “Operation Warp Speed” in a bid to develop, manufacture and distribute a COVID-19 vaccine to all Americans by January 2021.Hundreds of millions of dollars have been directed to vaccine developers including nearly $500 million to Johnson & Johnson at the end of March.The United States has allocated funding to more companies than other nation in the hope that one of them will come up with the vaccine to counter the highly contagious virus.So far, Washington has handed out at a total of least 9.4 billion dollars to seven vaccine developers and signed manufacturing contracts with five of them to provide 700 million doses.The companies involved are: Johnson & Johnson, Moderna, Oxford/AztraZeneca, Novavax, Pfizer/BioNTech, Sanofi/GSK, Merck Sharp and Dohme.  Although none of the coronavirus vaccines under development has proved its efficacy yet in clinical trials, at least 5.7 billion doses have been pre-ordered around the world.First shipments of a COVID-19 vaccine created by Western laboratories have often been snapped up by the United States.Five vaccines — three Western and two Chinese — are in Phase 3 efficacy trials involving thousands of people.center_img Developing countries The  Coalition for Epidemic Preparedness Innovations (CEPI), launched in 2017 by Norway, India, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the Wellcome Trust, seeks to ensure that there is “equitable access” to future vaccines.It has pre-ordered 300 million doses from AstraZeneca for dozens of developing countries in a partnership with The Vaccine Alliance (Gavi).Billions of doses would be produced for Asia and elsewhere by the giant Serum Institute of India (SII), the largest vaccine producer in the world.Novavax and AstraZeneca have separately signed agreements with SII to produce a billion doses each for India and low- and middle-income countries on the condition, of course, that they prove their efficacy in clinical trials. In a surprise announcement, Russian President Vladimir Putin claimed Tuesday that a vaccine dubbed “Sputnik V” — after the Soviet satellite — conferred “sustainable immunity” against the novel coronavirus. As research laboratories around the world race to develop a vaccine, manufacturers have received financing to help them prepare to have millions of doses ready to administer in 2021 or even before the end of the year.Oxford University, working with the Swedish-British pharmaceutical group AstraZeneca, hopes to have results by September while the US biotech company Moderna, partnering with the US National Institutes of Health (NIH), is aiming for the end of the year, possibly November.

The great Australian dream is bulls***

first_imgFor some young Australians, the idea of home ownership has been shelved in lieu of lifetime renting.WE’VE reached a tipping point.Debate rages about Australian housing affordability, fuelled again this week by 35-year-old rich-list property developer Tim Gurner, who claimed the current crop of first home buyers need to stop complaining and start saving.“They want to eat out every day, they want to travel to Europe every year. This generation is watching the Kardashians and thinking that’s normal. Thinking that owning a Bentley is normal, that owning a BMW is normal,” Gurner said on 60 Minutes.PROPERTY TYCOON SAYS FIRST-HOME BUYERS HAVE UNREALISTIC EXPECTATIONSProperty experts are suggesting, however, the national obsession with universal home ownership needs to stop.“The assumption that we’ve always had about ‘The Great Australian Dream’ — that everyone wants to have their own home — well that’s bull***, it just doesn’t happen,” said Kevin Turner, broadcaster and property commentator.“I think we’ve got to get used to the fact that not everyone in Australia is going to be able to afford to own their own home. They’re going to be renters long-term, or they don’t want to own a home.”Mr Turner said the rise in the ‘Generation Rent’ has also been bolstered by both a lack of affordability and compulsory superannuation.Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 3:42Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -3:42 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels360p360p240p240pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

So that probably is a big challenge.”He also believes the change isn’t going to be contained to Sydney.“I think it’s going to become more critical for Brisbane.“I think we’re going to see good growth potential in Brisbane and I do think it’s probably going to become … not as acute (as Sydney and Melbourne) but certainly headed in that direction.”Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:51Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:51 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

You should always seek professional advice in relation to your particular circumstances.Forced into lifetime rentingNoel Whittaker, investment adviser and commentator, said with Australia’s population forecast to hit 40 million within 40 years, he understands why young buyers would consider renting long-term.More from newsMould, age, not enough to stop 17 bidders fighting for this home5 hours agoBuyers ‘crazy’ not to take govt freebies, says 28-yr-old investor5 hours ago“I must confess, I have no idea how young people on average incomes could afford a property without help from their parents.“Of course, cheaper accommodation is available outside the capital cities but this may not suit most people because of lack of job opportunities and health facilities,” he said.Mr Whittaker said if you analyse the figures, long-term renters can be financially better off than homeowners.“There are many studies which show that renting is cheaper than owning, but most renters don’t invest the money they save by renting instead of buying.”Mr Whittaker believes the long-term implication of a rent-only generation is a widening wealth chasm.“The gap between the haves and the have-nots is continuing to increase. How can any retiree who is single cope on the full-age pension of $423 a week if they pay rent?”Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayNext playlist itemMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:45Loaded: 0%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:45 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedQuality Levels720p720pHD540p540p360p360p270p270pAutoA, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

The key really is to have a plan.”last_img read more
