BioNTech founders predict pandemic will spread for at least another year
 

 
The founders of BioNTech, the German biotechnology company that developed a prominent coronavirus vaccine with Pfizer, are predicting that the pandemic likely will continue into 2022 as new waves of the infection surge in countries with limited vaccine supplies.

During The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council Summit on Tuesday, BioNTech CEO Uğur Şahin warned that COVID-19 will continue to spread unless countries do more to ramp up vaccine distribution in countries such as India, which on Tuesday became the second country to record 20 million coronavirus infections.

“We need to ensure really high vaccination rates worldwide. Otherwise, no one will be safe,” Şahin said, adding that the pandemic will end only once the entire globe reaches herd immunity.

“By mid-2022, even regions with high density populations like India will reach a high rate of vaccination and herd immunity,” Şahin, who founded BioNTech with his wife, Özlem Türeci, explained Tuesday, according to the Journal.

He went on to say that over the next year, the world will see “an increasing number of industrial, developing and low-income countries reaching this type of herd immunity just by increasing the manufacturing capacity of the currently existing players and adding new manufacturing sites.”

Türeci, BioNTech’s chief medical officer, argued that mixing and matching shots from different manufacturers could be necessary to more quickly reach herd immunity, a practice the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) said earlier this year should be done with the Pfizer and Moderna shots only in “exceptional situations.”

The more vaccines we have available, the better. ... We can obviously mix and match them in principle,” Türeci said Tuesday. “At the end of the day, we want to achieve herd immunity. We want to achieve as many vaccinated people as possible.”

BioNTech has committed itself to adding more manufacturing sites to better supply shots to low-income countries and has teamed up with Pfizer for global distribution except in Germany, China and Turkey. In those countries, BioNTech is operating on its own or working with other manufacturing partners, the Journal reported.

India has opened COVID-19 vaccinations to all adults amid the most recent surge, and other nations have announced plans to send supplies to the country, whose population is more than 1 billion people.

On Monday, the Pentagon announced it would be sending to India four large cargo planes filled with “critical supplies,” including oxygen generation capabilities and personal protective gear.


The surge in India, which experts have connected to a lack of COVID-19 restrictions and a more contagious variant of the virus, comes as the South Asian country’s daily rate of vaccinations has fallen from an all-time high last month.

Reuters reported Tuesday that just about 9.5 percent of India’s population has been fully vaccinated amid limited imports and as companies struggle to increase vaccine supply.

US is at 35% of fully vaccinated people....which is great but they need to atleast double that number

Alot of countries around the world have less than 10% vaccinated at this point and have a long way to go

It will take a year

yup and they have stronger immune systems due to poor sanitary conditions vs USA, which means that sh*t just mutated to be even stronger. once that comes back to the US its over for us

Lol why do they need to double that number? A majority of the folks that are vaccinated are older and part of the vulnerable population. If people under 50 are the non-vaxxed ones, why does it matter at that point? The 'rona would simply be passed around by people that can, not only, survive it, but that would prolly have minimal or minor symptoms if they catch it. I don't understand the reasoning behind the large push now for the younger people to get it.... The younger population that are susceptible will probably be the first in line to get it when they are eligible. Outside of that, if granny is inoculated, but the sound minded adults are making the decision not to get vaccinated and risk getting sick or not vaccinating their minimally affected kids, what difference doesn't make?

BX please enlighten me.

The more the virus spreads the more it mutates and becomes stronger. The vaccine will not work against mutated strains and hospitalizations increase.

Your logic is like saying why do we care about gonorrhea, we can treat that sh*t with penicillin. But now that so many people have gotten gonorrhea it mutated to super gonorrhea that antibiotics dont work on.

Viruses are smart af, they learn from each infection and evolve.

Not only that those death numbers are just from hospital not dead people at home or burned in the streets.

Fun fact: During World War II, Japanese scientist created 'plague bombs' that would be dropped on Chinese villages. The viruses they placed in the bombs were so potent, they k*lled people within 1-2 days.

After World War II, the US pardoned the Japanese scientist in exchange that they give the US all of the information and research they had done on people and with the plague bombs.

Same way they ran event 201 simulating a deadly virus, economies crashing, people starving from food shortages etc and then covid happened months later.

"In recent years, the world has seen a growing number of epidemic events, amounting to approximately 200 events annually. These events are increasing, and they are disruptive to health, economies, and society. Managing these events already strains global capacity, even absent a pandemic threat. Experts agree that it is only a matter of time before one of these epidemics becomes global—a pandemic with potentially catastrophic consequences. A severe pandemic, which becomes “Event 201,” would require reliable cooperation among several industries, national governments, and key international institutions."





Same reason Fauci knew and peep how the articles always try to make excuses. It's no way you predict this without knowing and they knew because Fauci been working on it and funded Moderna.

Anthony Fauci said in 2017: "Trump will "no doubt" face infectious disease outbreak during presidency"





Same reason gates knew he also funded the sh*t with moderna and pfizer

"Bill Gates thinks a coming disease could k*ll 30 million people within 6 months — and says we should prepare for it as we do for war"




then says it again because he know something about to go haywire with these shots




and then wants to block the sun notice smart dust are small nano bots that run apps just like the tech in the shot




Do we realize what will happen if he succeeds in blocking the sun with smart dust?

"Smart dust is a tiny device with extensive applications in science and technology. Designing a product of tiny or compact size with various intrinsic applications is a recent trend in technology, especially in electronics."

Which is why they can change the flavor of the vaccines and those who want to be vaccinated, will continue to get the boosters. Either the vaccine is effective for what is currently known about C19, and the vaccinated folks need not worry about the non-vaxed, or the vaccines can't keep up with this thing and are ineffective either way. Your logic is flawed if you promote the vaccine and are saying that it is not effective enough to keep up with the mutations or "new strains".

So are you cool with putting your kids in a school with a bunch of kids not vaccinated for measles and small pox?

Seeing as how they are already vaccinated, they will be safe; so, yes. Those vaccines have also been thoroughly tested and the diseases themselves were deadly on their own either way. Neither of them required the infected to be part of a specific age group with underlying conditions to have a 5% non-survival rate.
