Here’s how the list describes exceptional leaders:They envision the future and get others to do the same. Inspiration is the driving force behind motivation, Schwantes says.

Moderna’s COVID-19 vaccine won’t be ready by US election: Report

first_imgUS biotech firm Moderna won’t seek an emergency use authorization for its coronavirus vaccine before November 25, its CEO told the Financial Times on Wednesday.The news deals a blow to President Donald Trump’s hopes of having an injection ready before the election to give his campaign a much-needed boost.Stephane Bancel told the newspaper: “November 25 is the time we will have enough safety data to be able to put into an EUA file that we would send to the FDA [Food and Drug Administration] — assuming that the safety data is good, i.e. a vaccine is deemed to be safe.” Trump, whose approval has taken a hit over his handling of the COVID-19 crisis, has frequently hinted a vaccine could be ready before the November 3 vote.This has raised concern among experts that his administration may attempt to interfere with the regulatory process for political reasons.The Republican repeated his claim on Tuesday night, during a debate with his Democratic rival, former vice president Joe Biden.”It’s a possibility that we’ll have the answer before November 1,” he said. Moderna’s vaccine is one of 11 experimental vaccines in final stage trials.Another is being developed by Pfizer, whose CEO Albert Bourla has taken the position that his company may have a clear answer about whether their shot works by October.Most experts are skeptical of the claim, believing that the ongoing trials will not have sufficient statistical data to prove the drug’s safety and effectiveness by that time.Speaking to the Washington Post on Tuesday, Bourla denied he was attempting to curry favor with the president by making his October claim.”For me, the election day is an artificial day. The end of October is an artificial day. This is how we operate. If we can bring it earlier, we will,” he said.center_img Topics :last_img read more
