Revival’s in the Air–BiotecWARS™
After a storm sometimes skies become clearer. Sometimes my best sunrise and sunset photographs are taken after storms. After Wednesday’s January 6, 2021 storm many things finally became clearer for Americans. It is about time! A government that has failed on almost all levels during this pandemic since the start, has failed Americans, including healthcare professionals, all year long and now during an inadequate national vaccine distribution effort as Covid-19 deaths reach over 400,000 deaths in U.S. as of 1/20/2021,finally is seen as unsupportable?!
A recap of these inactions and much information on Covid-19 are documented here at this section at my site – www.bioHazard2020.com
The most current info on the bioHazard2020 and now continuing in 2021 is here = https://seekingbiotechalpha.com/biohazard2020-3-1
After a year or more of highly visceral political campaigns, with millions of $'s spent attacking each other and USA businesses, many companies are now considering or have already concluded that they will no longer fund politicos, either all of them, or some of them. Hallelujah! Over a year ago I made recommendations in many blogs that bio-pharma companies should redirect all their political funds away from all politicos, both Dem & GOP candidates, given the level of hostility directed against the bio-pharma sector ad nauseum by both sides. I am happy to read now that many USA companies have placed all of their political funding on hold. Hallelujah Again! This may be the only positive outcome of the devastating and chaotic events of January 6th. At least, “Revival’s In The Air” during the www.biotecWARS.com
The fact that right now America is under heavy assault from the SARS-CoV2 virus with hundreds of thousands of deaths, was not enough to conclude that the politicos are not deserving of financial support? Nor the fact that the bio-pharma companies suffered thru the worst year of politico attacks, while developing miraculous vaccines in record time? “The World’s Most Loathed Industry Gave Us a Vaccine in Record Time”
As I have already written, 2020 will go down as the worst year for the bio-pharma industry from a political/PR standpoint as per my last blog = Biotech-WAR$™-God, Turn It Around 上帝，把它转过来 - danwatson888
The political funding is essentially adding fuel to the fire and more money spent to vilify the bio-pharma companies and other successful American businesses all in an effort to "win" votes or motivate voters hatred of all businesses or certain businesses or the "others". All of these company political funds could be/would be better spent on more constructive efforts/non-political organizations. After this year, I support all efforts by businesses to suspend or end all political funding going forward.
As of this moment in time the www.biotecWARS.com or www.biotech-WARS.com are entering a temporary limbo. We shall see how long this actually lasts before politicos reignite their circular counterproductive fireworks and again start vilifying the healthcare sector. My hope is that they come to some kind of truce, any kind of truce with the bio-pharma sector. We shall see.
BioHazard2020/2021 & BiotecHOPE™
The BioHazard2020 is non-stop into 2021 but at least in America, Europe, Canada we have vaccines from (PFE)(BNTX), (MRNA), (AZN) and hopefully soon (JNJ) to counter the SARS CoV2 virus and the COVID-19 disease.
Meanwhile all during this pandemic, all during this hatred filled supercharged election year, bio-pharma and medtech companies continue to make gains both fighting the SARS CoV2 virus and many other ailments. Below are just a few gains in the last month of 2020 and the beginning of 2021; Also here = https://seekingbiotechalpha.com/2021-1
