Merck CANCELS development of both of its coronavirus vaccines after the shot offered people LESS protection than surviving COVID-19

Merck & Co said on Monday it is ending development of two potential COVID-19 vaccine candidates, V590 and V591
Officials say the vaccines were well-tolerated but didn't generate enough of an immune response compared to other shots or natural infection
Instead, the New Jersey-based company says it will focus its research on therapeutic drugs, MK-7110 and MK-4482, to fight COVID-19
MK-7110 protects patients from the damage of an overactive immune response to the virus while the other drug is given in the early stages of infection

So getting the Wuhan is safer and more effective than getting the experimental biologic agent. Who would have ever believed that?

I guess Bill didn't find them mutagenic or fatal enough.

So libs will rush pharma into making something but generally takes 10 years of clinical trials to find all side effects.

Wait till pandemic is over, moderna n pfizer will get hit with lot of law suits for side effects. Glad merck didn't fall for this trap.

I think they're protected from lawsuits if I recall correctly.

Covid exists, but this was all a game and most people were played and some still are being played. The people that hide from a virus have limited sources for information. At some point seeing things with your own eyes is all you need. Being fed lies and being scared is the biggest problem with Covid. The makers of the game now know this. Expect more games and realize when a new one starts.

That's fine and all, but either way, Covid is really not that deadly anyway. I'm all for treating people and less people dying, but people have been now brainwashed to think there's a vaccine coming to save them and they'll stay locked down until that happens. There isn't and it's becoming obvious with every passing day that we're in for long term lockdowns for the foreseeable future. We need to just get back to normal and treat it like the flu and get drugs out there that mrk or whoever designs that can help people not get as sick as we've done with every other virus.
