https://www.theguardian.com/world/live/2020/mar/15/coronavirus-latest-updates-trump-tests-negative-as-spain-orders-nationwide-lockdown-uk-us-australia-italy-europe-global-economy

German newspaper Welt am Sonntag has reported that US president Donald Trump has sought exclusive rights to a vaccine for the coronavirus which is being developed by a German-based company, CureVac.

The report, which quoted unnamed sources, said Trump had offered large sums of money to German scientists working on the vaccine, and that the Germany government was working to prevent the US procuring it on this basis.

The governments of Germany and the United States are wrestling over the German-based company CureVac which is working on a vaccine for the novel coronavirus, reported German newspaper Welt am Sonntag.

The prominent German media outlet reported, citing unnamed sources, that US President Donald Trump was offering large sums of money to German scientists working on a vaccine. He wanted to secure exclusive rights to their work, the newspaper reported.

Trump was doing everything he could to secure a vaccine for the United States, "but only for the US," the newspaper quoted an anonymous German government source as saying.

The newspaper reported that the German government has tried to offer the company financial incentives to remain in Germany.

A German health ministry spokesman told Die Welt that the government was in "intensive" dialogue with CureVac.

"The German government is very interested in having the development of vaccines and treatments against the novel coronavirus undertaken in Germany and Europe," the spokesman said.

CureVac declined to comment to Die Welt. The company is based in the southwestern German city of Tübingen and works with the Paul Ehrlich Institute, linked with the German health ministry. It also has sites in Frankfurt and the US city of Boston.

On Friday, CureVac co-founder and chief production officer Florian von der Mülbe told Reuters that research into several possible vaccines had begun and the two most promising would be chosen for clinical tests. The company hoped to have an experimental vaccine developed by June or July, and then to get approval for testing on people.

Meeting with Trump

Trump on Saturday tested negative for the coronavirus after potentially being exposed to several cases.

The COVID-19 outbreak, which started in China, has spread across the globe with more than 156,000 confirmed cases and 5,800 deaths. More than 70,000 people have recovered from the virus, which presents for most people as a mild to moderate illness, but can become a serious condition in others.

On March 2, CureVac's then-CEO Daniel Menichella attended a meeting at the White House to discuss coronavirus vaccine development with Trump and members of his coronavirus taskforce.

On March 11, the company announced Menichella would be replaced by company founder Ingmar Hoerr, without giving a reason why.

The people panic buying..urgh!! Know theres panic but people buying 10 packets of pasta or 7 bottles of capol is madness. It's sad shops have had to send emails out reminding people and limiting them. Not everyone can afford to go mad and they are the ones who will be effected.

I hope this nightmare is over by summer. In Estonia all schools, theatres, museums, cinemas are closed. All public gatherings are banned, life is standing still.

Lamb Of God concert I was waiting for a long time is not happening in Helsinki. :( It's a tragedy for me.

The upcoming bailouts and stimulus from Trump administration will make Bernie Sanders' policies look like free market capitalism.

The school I teach at closed down today indefinitely. We will be doing remote learning via Google Classroom. It will be interesting.

Boris Johnson was fucking awesome once again how he skirted around everything and put the onus on the British public rather than actually telling people what to do.

I have brought more pasta and tin food than usual just incase ( not an obscene amount but enough just incase the unthinkable happens) but instead of bulk buying i do it when i'm passing a certain shop just 1 or 2. Bulk buying in one go is selfish in my opinion.

Biggest DJIA point drop in history today

was over 3000 down (reallllly tanked as Trump was speaking at a presser the last hour), pipped up last minute)

it probably crashes under the the 20,000 point barrier support level tomorrow or within a few days if it has a dead cat bounce tomorrow

Trump looked UTTERLY clueless, he is lashing out at the US governors, aides are saying he like a prowling rabid bear (bear is apropos as the markets are in a massive bearish mood) in a perma-rage

I can but imagine the amount of Adderall the fucker is snorting :blink:
