Bret Weinstein@BretWeinstein14hEureka! We appear to have solved a major pharmaceutical mystery: Why did Merck attack the safety of its own (decades old) extremely safe drug? Turns out @Merck is racing to EUA on a dangerous new drug to add to its COVID portfolio. They're getting the hang of the pandemic biz. 💰
‘They pretended there were no treatments’: Former Pfizer VP and Chief Science Officer
It's amazing, when I was a kid and studying applied chemistry, getting a job at Merck was considered some sort of achievement. It basically validates your entire college studies and research experience. Merck, Amgen, etc, were considered marque companies to launch a career.
They had created vaccine for ebola, and cure for certain type of cancer. They also have viral cancer prevention vaccine.
Didn't realize working for merck was an achievement. I think it used to be, now they hire based of minority quota.
