Panama testing of COVID-19 vaccine  stalled  by flight challenges

The COVID-19 induced irregularity of international flights to Panama has stalled the arrival of a vaccine to be used in  a phase 2  test which was to have started on Sunday, September 6.

The biological product is  "highly sensitive to temperature changes." said a statement from, the Cevaxin Research Center, leader of the consortium that is carrying out the  COVID-19 vaccine project in Panama, has been managing the transfer of the material from Germany, the headquarters of the pharmaceutical company CureVac, manufacturer of the vaccine.

Like other biological materials, explains Cevaxin, vaccines must be stored in a frozen state, in this particular case at a temperature of minus 80 degrees Celsius.

For their safe transport, they are packed covered with dry ice, which must be replaced periodically to maintain the appropriate temperature at all times.

The shortage of commercial flights, a product of the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as the limitations or restrictions of airlines to transport certain cargo, has caused the transport of vaccines to Panama to be delayed.

As is done for other studies, it has been ensured that the load is handled by trained personnel and that controlled environmental conditions guarantee the conditions in which it must be maintained.

Despite the logistical setbacks, Cevaxin is making progress in the development of the study, since it continues with the recruitment phase of the volunteers who will participate in the project that puts Panama on the map of global clinical research.

https://c19study.com this data shows the truth that has been purposely hidden as people were left to die. THE FACTS are even without treatment 99.6% to 99.9% or MOST PEOPLE will live! Enough with the lies, fraud, deception and disinformation as people suffer from hunger and suicide ***** So its time the world go after the criminals responsible https://plandemicseries.com spread the truth and stop the propaganda. People need to pay for their crimes!

Update on the case of AstraZeneka that involved “pausing” the trial: ***The participant who triggered a global shutdown of AstraZeneca’s Phase 3 Covid-19 vaccine trials was a woman in the United Kingdom who experienced neurological symptoms consistent with a rare but serious spinal inflammatory disorder called transverse myelitis. Furthermore, among the few vaccine injuries that ever get reported to the NVICP, transverse myelitis is COMMON! In the quartely DOJ reports, compensations for transverse myelitis as a result of vaccines, is listed as TM, and almost always a result of the Flu Shot. **As to safety of vaccines, I re-iterate the recent polio vaccines administered in Sudan and Chad—a Gates sponsored program—it happened that the vaccine injected to prevent the spread of polio is actually being transmitted by same. **And if that’s not enough for all you vaxxers out there, consider this new report from Vaccine Impact News: “ September DOJ Report Lists 200 Vaccine Injuries and 1 Vaccine Death Compensated During 6 Month Period - And that's Without a Fast-Tracked COVID Vaccine” (source is available if requested)

The reason they stopped, One person received an acute inflammation of the spinal cord, called transverse myelitis. Today in the papers, Dark clouds hanging above Oxford and vaccine. They are actually ahead of the trials with their competitors in phase 3 while others are in phase 2. Nevertheless, I think we should rely on our system and so far it has worked for 99.8%. Not sure why they are so excited by having a vaccine in record time. The previous Corona outbreaks they didn't bother to continue and melted slowly away, same will happen with this one till the next one shows up.

Observer, why do I keep having to enlighten you to the facts? First, trying to redirect the conversation to Trump is a typical leftist tactic: I don’t support Trump/am not a US citizen—got it? I only care that a strong leader gets elected there bc it affects the world and Trump has just been nominated for Nobel Peace Prize and I want a leader to keep us out of war (which he has been able to do); next: the Oxford vaccine trial — we DO know the potential serious adverse reaction which halted the trial—if you read, you would know what it was; suggest you do your research before you make asinine comments—it WAS a deadly potential reaction; since you’re so INTO vaccines, explain how a new pandemic in Chad and Sudan just broke out: “UN Forced To Admit Gates-Funded Vaccine Is Causing Polio Outbreak In Africa” . To all those vaxxers who repeat the lie that a pharmaceutical company eradicated Polio when it fact, it did and is now doing again another pharm-related outbreak of polio through dangerous vaccines; lastly, if the Gorgas Institute is so prestigious as you state, why don’t they do a patient trial using Calciferol (Vitamin D3 to layman) to follow up and confirm a small, double-blind, controlled trial which produced amazing results: 50% less chance of ICU and no deaths vs 2% chance of ICU and 2 deaths with placebo. The doctors want desperately to have someone in another area repeat this study with a larger group bc it was so significant—so step forward Gorgas and take this up (then again, don’t—you can’t make money on a Vit D3 therapeutic). Here’s the details to copy/paste on browser if you ever manage to fact-find whatof you speak, or you only have time for contradicting someone who really cares about humanity’s health: https://youtu.be/V8Ks9fUh2k8

Oh ya

So i read yesterday that the UN has admitted that the vaccine the devil bill gates is giving to people in Africa for polio is actually giving these people polio and many countries over there have stopped doing it. And this is the same devil funding a vaccine for 19. And jb is right about your bad health may come back to haunt you and that is your problem not mine

One day each one of these herd immunity supporters (who prefer the un-masked state ) will as well be old like me. I'm 75 yrs old and still an active surfer. Last I surfed was the end of last year here at Santa Catalina, Veraguas. I love surfing as my sport of choice and wonder if I will ever do it before I die. Think about that !

The silent spread of the virus among the younger healthier population will lead us to herd immunity soon enough. Young people who have had a case of the sniffles in the past 6 months should get an antigen test before they take the vaccine, they probably don't need it. President Trump is pushing the worthless bureaucratic swamp to the side to get a vaccine faster. Whether the vaccine works or not, who cares, the most important thing is taking the power away from the leftist tyrants and getting the economy open again. Ruining the life of a 25 year old to try and protect an old, fat, alcoholic, smoker, diabetic with high blood pressure who will be dead in 5 years anyways really makes no sense. If you ate and drank and smoked yourself into poor health then this virus is custom made for you!

I Volunteer Hogan to go unmasked to a Trump rally. and develop a natural immunity to reality. The reason that Panama is involved is that there is a worlwide testing program involving people of all ethnic backgrounds and we have the renowned Gorgas Institute. to monitor testing. The severity of the infection that has halted the Oxford tesring is not known, but it underlines the reason for doing worlwide tests before rushing for a rigged FDA approval before that "very special day" when the US cures itself of a near fatal infection in the WH.

Reading today that AstraZenaca vaccine (Oxford—one that Panama was contemplating) was put on hold bc of a possible related serious adverse effect in a trial. Giving a person with a medical condition an injection with the potential to cure him is one thing; giving a healthy person an injection (vaccine) that has the potential to harm him is quite another. Something bothers me to do with the whole concept of vaccinations claiming to protect us from every germ out there versus letting us create a natural (and often lifetime immunity) and make us stronger in the long run. Building a strong immune systems negates the need of a “rehearsal for the real thing”—which is the foundational hypothesis underlying vaccination. Nature isn’t sufficient? We must fight off every conceivable germ with a shot in the arm? And endless “booster shots” to keep that immunity active? An endless stream of profits for the pharm companies and complicit elites as well as for doctors towing the line who violate their oath to “do no harm” — jabs in the arm that have been proven to be dangerous (and unnecessary) for the populace.

I volunteer all the deputados of the NA and the top bureaucrats of MINSA to lead by example and take the first doses.

volunteers who will participate in the project that puts Panama on the map of global clinical research. AS what? guinea pigs? why are they willing to fly it all the way here, and under those conditions, would it not be easier to test people who live where they are? or are they afraid that it will harm a lot of people, and they can walk away from it.
