Pharma industry could really do itself a lot of PR favors by responding well to COVID

Yeah a coordinated, public-focused response would be tremdndous for them

I heard a good podcast about Big Pharma and COVID. The cost and profits of how this business is conducted is interesting. They talked about an anti Hep C medication that could work and said one course is $84k! I don’t like that you have to be rich to be healthy or taken care of

Don't they always prioritize profit?

We'll see if they can come together to get a vaccine or therapeutics. So far, Gilead first in line

I really don’t trust them to lead this charge. Luckily with Hep C, it took years, but now we can get several meds covered through Medicaid plans for some of poorest populations. How long will it take before the most effective COVID meds are accessible to the general population? I still worry about hospital bills...

You couldn't be more wrong. I've never seen such a coordinated speedy approach to a problem. Pharma is very much leading the way. Academic efforts just dont have the efficiency and know how to rapidly make a product like biotechs and pharma. Don't forget if people arent healthy and the economy tanks we all suffer. This is the biggest threat to our way of life in at least the past 100 years and without industry many times the number would die. This is why many went into the business instead of treating patients.

Vax question: my state is finally letting me get the vax. I am hoping to do it this weekend (J&J). The problem is I have to fly into Chicago next weekend and will be required to take a COVID test before I arrive as I won’t have the 2 weeks to be “fully vaccinated”. Will the J&J vax cause a false positive on my COVID test? I don’t think it will, as it is a viral vector vax and not a weakened version of the virus, but maybe there is someone on this app who knows the real answer.
