xyzcf, thank you so very much for this latest link.

One thing to remember is that all of this will be considered new development. In this field, new development is a more hectic environment even before COVID-19. There are fast shifts in all areas of it, from boardrooms to lab and manufacturing. The time pressure on this particular new development product, for all of the companies participating across the globe, is probably unimaginable unless you’ve been in these environments.

It’s just not like sustaining products at *all*.

The new development teams are going to be intensive and hardcore about getting results as quickly as possible. In the USA, where I have worked in these environments, even prior to this pandemic, I’ve observed a sharp shift from previously very structured and very regulated to what to me feels like a more chaotic approach marked by lack of accountability from leadership on down. It’s one of the reasons I have chosen to lay low and reconsider my decades-long career; the ethics, integrity, and structured approach I value has seemed to have fallen by the wayside. There are a lot of reasons for this, and I know one of the biggest is cultural. That has to do with the leadership at the top, here, and I don’t mean the leadership in any company.

You know what I mean, I hope.

This article is reassuring, and not least because this leader acknowledges the work that other countries are doing to find a solution to this virus.

What I want to say here, from personal perspective within several companies in the USA, is that it’s good that our country isn’t the only one working on this. We really do want any product to be tested all the way, and in the correct way. Ideally whichever country or company first identifies a solution that works will share out the formula and procedures to the rest of the world without making it a thing of politics or financial product.

I don’t know if that will happen, but it really should. If it goes any other way, I don’t know what I will ever do for career or paycheck ever again. The backbone of these environments used to be ethics and integrity. Look to the manufacturers who inspire the most trust. This is not about time to market. If we have to wait, because the testing is critical, then we have to wait.

This graph shows cases may be going up, but deaths are still way down from April.

The site has some very good graphs and charts that show where increases and decreases have happened by country.

Yes one of the minor silver linings is that more of the cases are coming from younger people at lower risk. And we may have better treatment. But this is temporary. The rate of increase is so large that this improvement will be swamped by sheer numbers, and once again hospitals may be overwhelmed (as some are hitting capacity in Texas and Florida). So this is not a thing to be very comfortable with.

Also once enough of the population gets sick it becomes near impossible to protect the at risk population.
