They're trying to see how it works on prodromal patients, they expect it may prove more useful there than in an acute setting.

Phooey

There must be some way they can make it addictive.

So Pfizer's trial participants are being too careful about being exposed to the virus, or are in places where they're not as likely to be exposed.  That's hardly a reason to worry about anything.

I was at my hospital in Oxford yesterday, and the gossip is they have some good news on the way, so it's not all doom and gloom.

Let me shoot that down for you, as I have a friend here in Dallas that is on the Pfizer trial. And, and, we have surging cases here. 600 new cases in Dallas yesterday.

Whatever, I don't trust a vaccine from a company that can't even clean dookie smears off their logo space.

Pake news! What does Pfizer know about vaccines? Nothing, compared to the 200+ IQ God like intellect of Trump (PBUH).

It is if you are trying to prove the vaccine works.  A longer Phase 2 trial delays Phase 3.  Some of China's vaccines are being tested in South America, because they have their outbreak under control.

RLF-100 (Aviptadil) will be the next approved therapeutic you hear about. Synthetic human peptide VIP which is found primarily in the lungs and has shown a 3 fold benefit in intubated ICU patient survival. Its works, look it up

The made an estimate of how long it would take to reach their 32 infection milestone given assumptions about the general prevalence in the population and the efficacy of the vaccine. Either they overestimated the future infection rate in the general population or underestimated the efficacy of the vaccine, or some combination thereof. They don't have a crystal ball.

Running a bit over the predicted milestone because of fewer than expected infections is not really something to get worked up over.
