COVID-19 Industrial Policy Fails Again
 

Quote

 

It's a good thing Americans don't have to wait for the federal government's hand-picked suppliers of vaccines and syringes to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Those operations are not going well.

First, let's check in with ApiJect Systems Corp, a Connecticut-based medical supply company that got a $138 million government contract last year to develop a newfangled syringe that would be pre-filled with COVID-19 vaccine. You might think that's a lot of money simply to save the few seconds it takes to fill a syringe with vaccine—but the real goal of the contract was to reduce America's supposedly debilitating (and vastly overstated) reliance on medical equipment made in other countries.

...

More than 215 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine have been administered to Americans, but not a single one has been delivered via the fancy new syringes that ApiJect Systems is getting paid to produce. In fact, NBC reported on Wednesday that ApiJect has yet to produce a single syringe.

...

how are things going at Emergent BioSolutions, the federal government's hand-picked manufacturer of American-made vaccines?

Oh, boy. "Federal regulators have found serious flaws at the Baltimore plant that had to throw out up to 15 million possibly contaminated doses of Johnson & Johnson's coronavirus vaccine," The New York Times reports. "Production is now on pause in the United States, and all vaccines manufactured at the plant have been quarantined."

...

Unlike ApiJect, which received government funds during last year's rush to throw as much money at possible pandemic-ending ideas, Emergent Biosolutions has been on the federal dole since 2012 for the express purpose of domestic vaccine production in the event of a viral outbreak. That it has so far been unable to produce a single usable dose of vaccine is a damning illustration of the failure of industrial policy. This is the ultimate "you had one job" situation.

Under industrial policy, businesses become successful by lobbying for government contracts rather than by making products that work.

...

 

I suspect the reaction to the failures of these companies to do anything useful will be the usual one: give them more taxpayer money.

BTW, I gave Mikey a time out, which will be the same response anyone gets for calling the coronavirus response measures 'hysteria' or peddling misinformation that could hurt someone.

I'm day 9 of symptoms and still in the middle if it. Let me tell you,  getting a viral load from convience store handle much less than getting it from being in a maskless patients face coughing on you

It is not whether it offends, it is whether it is dangerous. Spreading false information about the dangers of a pandemic can kill people. Most forums have a ratio of between 10 and 100 lurkers to ever

Yeah, your boy Shitstain awarded Apiject that contract. Any cite to the Biden administration giving them any more money?

Also, Apiject doesn't make syringes and it doesn't supply syringes or even pre-filled syringes. What it makes is a syringe filling machine. Consequently, it makes sense that it hasn't delivered a single syringe because Apiject doesn't make syringes.

Of course, you wouldn't know any of this if you read Reason.

From Dec to Jan over 20% of my hospitals patients were COVID  Now we have a total of three COVID patients, or so.  Now we are back with allowing visitors and people that pass get taken away by a funeral home worker in a suit that puts a beautiful quilt over them.  

In 5--10 years will having worked bedside during COVID for a healthcare worker mean something special?  I think it has to.  I remember when we went from /a/ COVID unit to two. And then every unit was COVID.    We are in the aftermath and I really hope science and common sense win.   My rural hospital lost 50-some RNs during the last six months as they took COVID travel contracts for up to $$10k a week.  We are still as short staffed now as during the darkest days in January.

Very interesting..."looks like the vaccines are working, so we don't have to get one".

Quote

More than half of Kansas’ counties have turned down their weekly allotment of coronavirus vaccine doses because demand for the shots has declined.

The state said 62 of Kansas’ 105 counties declined their weekly allocations of vaccines from the state last week.

A spokesperson for Gov. Laura Kelly said it appears that many Kansans are delaying getting the vaccine after there has been a steady drop in the number of new infections, hospitalizations and deaths in the state.

State officials are planning a campaign to encourage people who are indifferent or reluctant to get the vaccine to consider getting the shots. And plans are underway to target vaccine distribution more on younger people who make up a large portion of the new cases in the state.

Barton County in central Kansas is one of the places that declined its shipment of the shots. In that county, about 30% of adults have received at least one dose of a vaccine compared to 36.4% across the state.

Barton County Health Director Karen Winkelman said she plans to move away from mass vaccination clinics to using more private doctors and pharmacies that have closer relationships with their patients. The county is also offering walk-in vaccination without appointments now.

But Winkelman said she won’t twist people’s arms to get them vaccinated.

“I would like to see the number higher,” she said, “but I can also respect people’s decisions.”

Gaston is one selfish, pontificating prick.

Today's update by the CDC regarding masks outside suggests they may not be as essential as before.  This is due to more knowledge of transmission along with the increase in vaccines.  BUT, this also relies on knowing the vaccination status of others.  It would be best to be safe, and wear a mask when not problematic. 

Folks like Gaston prefer to mock people and their concern for others.

CDC Guidelines.

You truly are an asshole.  I can say in Pensacola the only people wearing masks are employees and tourists, ditto for cities along the coast in AL, MS and LA.  Interestingly people are still being cautious in Texas still.  My anecdotal experience trumps yours again.

Maybe she was thinking about other people catching what she might have, instead of being a self centered asshole.... Like the guy who laughed, and spread his germs in that near gale force wind well over 100' in the down wind area. Maybe only ducks, and RC sailors were down wind.... Maybe there was an older woman with pollen allergies sucking in that dusty wind in big heaping gulps.

And you know that that young woman wasn't in a high risk group how?

When Florida's case numbers match Melbourne's get back to me.

I really don't understand why people take a anti-stance on the mask thing. Does it bother you? How does it hurt?

Some people here still wear masks even though out community case numbers are zero. Do you ever wonder if there's a connection?

Personally, I find it easier to leave the mask on if I'm out and about. Saves remembering to take it on and off every time I enter a different small store. It's really no big deal.

What?  I’m pro mask.  I wear them indoors everywhere except at the gym and I’ve recovered from COVID and been vaccinated.  I’m a good citizen in that regard even though we are very close to the point where masks inside won’t be necessary either (once everyone who wants a shot has been able to get it).   People who want to wear a mask outdoors? Go for it.  But there is not and has not been a reason for a while.

I'm thinking this will be the template for the summer. As the numbers of willing people becoming vaccinated increases, virtually all emergent cases will be due to resistors.

As has been said, resistance is futile.

Iowa used to be sane  . .  (KOS) 

One of the more disheartening headlines I’ve seen, the story in today’s Des Moines Register is “Iowa turns down 71% of COVID vaccine offered by feds as demand continues to drop.”

For the week of May 10th, the state of Iowa has declined 71% of the 105,300 doses offered. This does not include vaccines distributed by the federal government directly to pharmacies.

Has become?

Canada has had a slow vaccination rate compared to the US largely because of slow supply but last survey I saw suggested a hesitancy rate of 10 to 12%. Every time they do a similar survey the rate declines as people see that their friends and neighbours aren't croaking after getting the jab. We would be happy to take your extra vaccine but better to send it to India.

Reaching ‘Herd Immunity’ Is Unlikely in the U.S., Experts Now Believe

https://www.nytimes.com/2021/05/03/health/covid-herd-immunity-vaccine.html

In related news ...

Immigration and border security were the most-mentioned items in an open-ended question about what the Legislature ought to be working on. Those are federal matters, but they’re top of mind for Texas voters, outranking mentions of the next three voter priorities combined. Where immigration and border security topped the legislative priorities list for 36% of voters, COVID-19, the energy system/grid, and the economy/jobs, together were the top priorities of 32%. In a February UT/TT Poll, COVID-19 was the top concern, with immigration and border security in second place.

“A plurality of Democrats are still worried about COVID, but there is a border crisis going on,” said Joshua Blank, research director for the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas at Austin. “It’s not a surprise that this has risen back to the top.”

Here is a perfect opportunity for the Faithful to bitch about how the President doesn't care about them.  Of course, they will ignore the fact how they are refusing the vaccine, so the doses are, as yet, unused.

White House plans to redistribute unordered vaccine supply, telling states: Use it or lose it

The White House on Tuesday told states that vaccine supply they leave unordered will become available to other states — the most significant shift in domestic vaccine distribution since President Biden took office, and part of an effort to account for flagging demand in parts of the country.

Each state’s share of the total U.S. adult population will still determine weekly allocations. But instead of allowing unordered doses to carry over week-to-week, the White House will steer untapped vaccine into a federal bank available to states where demand continues to outstrip supply. Those states will be able to order up to 50 percent above their weekly allocation.

The use-it-or-lose-it strategy has the potential to transform how vaccine flows across the country. In recent weeks, numerous states have begun leaving significant quantities of doses on the shelves. Last week, officials in Arkansas declined their entire share, the state confirmed.
