Ebola Vaccine Becoming a Virtual Gold Rush
How can someone make money from a deadly pandemic? Tens of thousands of investors know how, put your money into Tekmira Pharmaceutical stock, the new sacred cow of the pharmaceutical industry due to its recent FDA approval to fast track a possible Ebola vaccine.
Tekmira’s Ebola vaccine was put on hold temporarily by the FDA, but after a petition was posted last week that urged the FDA to push the trials forward, the FDA suddenly reversed its decision. It announced that it would approve a fast-track method for trials involving humans. Not surprisingly, Tekmira’s stock nearly doubled and currently stands at about 26 dollars a share. When did on online petition EVER get the FDA to do anything, except for big pharmacy profits?
More than 28 million shares of stock in Tekmira was bought and sold last Friday. It would be interesting to know if any of these investors have actually taken the time to think about what would have to happen for Tekmira, and themselves, to make a profit on its Ebola research.
Tekmira would only be profitable if there was a truly terrible Ebola pandemic and that people by the thousands or millions were dying or were infected and thus forcing governments worldwide to purchase the vaccine.
The gold rush has begun, friends. Already people are hoping to “make a killing” off of the possible deaths of thousands. There is already quite a bit of fear mongering going on solely for the purpose of creating demand for this vaccine. It’s interesting that both the media and the federal government state that a vaccine is the only hope, that there is no other medical treatment or options.
There was an article posted on Yahoo which stated that 145 people in Atlanta had contracted Ebola. This story was completely false and was later pulled, but before that could happen, that story was re-tweeted an untold number of times and it spread fear and panic probably faster than the virus could actually spread itself.
The purpose of “accidental stories” such as this is to create a public demand that their governments protect them and stockpile the necessary vaccine. Hear that sound? That’s the ka-ching! of dollars pouring in. When governments buy vaccines, they will end up spending as millions or even billions of dollars. After that, its mission accomplished for the stockholders and the vaccine manufacturers.
There is an article posted on 247WallSt.com that asks if Tekmira can actually make a profit with this vaccine. This article states that it’s one saving grace is that Ebola has now been declared a worldwide health emergency by the World Health Organization. This only clarifies that fact that the CDC and the WHO announcements are connected to the profits that Tekmira hopes to make.
Now Big Pharmacy knows that there is not much of a profit in selling the vaccine in developing countries. How can you get money where there is no money to be had. So the ultimate goal of Big Pharmacy is to extract as much money as possible from the given population. This is why we have pills selling in the United States for $1,000 each and the same pill being sold in Egypt for $10 each.
What these big drug companies really need is to have a serious Ebola outbreak in a country that has the money to spend on vaccines. Countries such as the UK, Canada, or the good old US of A.
