The problem is, the claim might not be taken seriously.

I suspect this will be science grounded.

The FDA is probably going to show some type of clinical data.

In the end as long as doctors believe the science it really doesn't matter what the average American does

Good luck, darkoz! I hope the news conference will be about Leronlimab.

This published 15 minutes ago from Forbes. Appears to be speculation.. but still.

I'm not exactly sure what you meant by that comment but as it reads it is definitely untrue

it is widely expected that if and when a vaccine comes that a great many Americans will refuse it

there are currently a great many Americans including older adults who are at the most high risk for seriousness who refuse to get flu shots

the CDC reports that only about 45% of adults over 18 get flu shots

I find the announcement of the press conference on only one news service. Care to take a guess as to which one that is?

Maybe. Maybe credible research has been done that yields significant results. Maybe the front line researches have been so disciplined that nothing has leaked to the press and even Googles all-reading spider bots ave not picked up a word of it. Maybe two huge government agencies involved have managed to have their many thousands of employees hold the information in confidence. Maybe.

So far there's just an article on one new organizations site announcing a press conference with a tease as to what will be presented. I'm not going out to get champagne in anticipation of partying like it's 1999. Show me the science.

Edit: After reading the Forbes article rsanctuary provided a link to, I am much more optimistic that there will be some substance to the announcement. That is, science.

It's a therapeutic being announced today not a vaccine.

Treatment will be for those who get sick and want to get better

I suppose if people catch a bacterial infection and refuse Penicillin you can argue Penicillin doesn't work.

Refusal to take your meds doesn't mean the meds don't work

Uhhh.

It's on CNN

It's on Fox

And it's tweeted out by Kayleigh macnannny

And Jared Kushner just discussed it this morning on Fareed Zakaria.

It's on a number of other sites

Not sure how you see only one place.

Suggestion, watch the news conference at 6pm
