3 Researchers Break Down COVID-19 Vaccines They're Developing (3 Types) | Cause + Control | WIRED

Dr. Seema Yasmin talks to three COVID-19 vaccine researchers who are developing three different types of vaccines. Traditionally, vaccines are created by using a weakened or dead version of the virus and injecting that into the body. Many of these developing coronavirus vaccines are using new technologies. What’s the difference between recombinant protein-based vaccine, a DNA-based vaccine and an mRNA-based vaccine?

  1. A Better Alternative

    "Today's commercial world does not advertise or promote enough
    to the general public a better superior alternative;
    A true sure cure remedy to kill off the invisible menacing virus enemy.
    Turn towards 'natural nature' it will provide you many answers!! Outside closely at your feet."

    (This discovery could prevent many deaths too save lives.)

    "A second constructive point: The speed and completion of this new medical vaccine
    and the roll-out distribution; Shows what could have been easily done along ago
    for the civil citizens of African descent."

    'To conclude: For The Love Of Humanity & Quality Equality.'


  2. We should study those that are naturally immune to COVID-19 then replicate their diet, lifestyle, BMI, Blood Type, then develop a national protocol to boost individuals' immune systems naturally.

  3. TL;DW of the video and other research is:

    The corona virus is hard to put into an inactive/dead state like the flu with out destroying the virus making it ineffective as a vaccine. So the two schools of thought is to tell the immune system directly to produce the antibodies or give it a piece of the virus to start the immune response.

    Protein — gives the body the protein that is associated with the Corona virus to have the immune system produce the antibodies needed– easier to make and may immunize against all Corona virus strains but least effective since not everyone's immune system will have a response to it, has to be stored similar to current vaccines — this method has been researched since early 2000s as a potential way to make a vaccine for the common cold.

    mRNA — tells the body to build antibodies that look for the proteins associated Corona virus — instable to store and transport (has to be kept frozen) but most successful — this method was being researched as a replacement for the standard flu vaccine.

    DNA — similar to how the mRNA works — more stable than all other vaccines but Scalability is harder — this method too was being researched as a replacement for the standard flu vaccine.

  4. How contradictive is all this info. Dr James Lyons-Weiler just said this month DECEMBER THAT there has been NO animal trials . He also said that stage 1 and 2 have been combined. I recommend everyone to Google him and watch his interview.

  5. Billionaires,Big Pharma/Tech,Media Talking Heads, our Dear Leaders show us compassion.Mean people attack them 24/7.They are merciful to constantly remind us of death and warn us about pandemics, cyberattacks,power outages they must have foreknowledge about.We just need to comply.

  6. So I know two people who’ve got it so far….
    1. 45 year old healthy black woman, got really sick for 1 1/2 weeks after #2
    2. 92 year old healthy aunt, needed gallbladder out 2 weeks after #2

  7. Revelation 18 23"And the light of a candle shall shine no more at all in thee; and the voice of the bridegroom and of the bride shall be heard no at all in thee: for thy merchants were the great men of the earth; for by thy sorceries were all nations deceived."
