Good to see Aussies pressing ahead with this urgently needed vaccine, the death rate from this gruesome pandemic currently stands at a staggering 0.0000051%. This is almost approaching to the death rate for accidentally falling out of a plane.

 

People are praying daily, between sessions hiding in their basements washing their hands, for this viral devastation of the population to finally end. Only a vaccine can save us form genocide. God bless the sound of celebrities singing "were all in this together" from their isolated mansions, it has given us the moral fortitude to keep fighting.

 

Not the Australia I grew up in...

That’s the spirit,   she,,ll be right!!

I don't know if RT.com (official Russian English News) should be trusted, but they claim that this was sponsored by the Bill Gates Foundation:

US biotech firm Novavax begins Covid-19 vaccine trials on Australian volunteers after getting $388mn from Bill Gates-backed fund
 

Novavax is testing a new coronavirus vaccine on human subjects for the first time, launching a phase one clinical trial with a massive grant from an agency founded by Bill Gates, kicking off a storm of concerns online.
 

The Maryland-based pharma company has begun its trial, which will dose some 130 Australian participants with the new inoculation, hoping to see results as early as July and proceed to the second phase.

RT might refer to this news release on the novavax website: http://ir.novavax.com/news-releases/news-release-details/novavax-receive-388-million-funding-cepi-covid-19-vaccine

 

What I don't understand is why the US company (Gaithersburg, MD) is testing on Australians?
Wouldn't the US, for example New York, make more sense?

Scomo's been conned again. I think they are in partnership with oz university who are doing the research.

Australia has a very low rate of infection. Testing the vaccine in a country riddled with virus is a bit like trying to eat only the holes in Swiss cheese.

How is this going to be tested? 
Will they infect the Australians after the vaccination with SARS-CoV-2 ?
If so, then New York should be no problem.

Australia does so much to keep the virus out, why bring it in?
