45. I mentioned upthread that for big pharma

vaccines are NOT a money-maker and that is why they rarely get into the manufacturing of them, usually only when countries beg them to make them (and probably offer subsidies and other incentives to do so).

What happened with COVID-19 seems to have changed the whole equation and business model due to the severity of the diseases it causes, the fatality rate that is higher than other very prevalent viruses (like Influenza), and how widespread it has been. So now you will see more and more jumping on the bandwagon - which because of the virulence of this virus, is good. But it is also unfortunate because just plain common sense measures like wearing a damn mask, have failed.
