We have seen the Democrat Party pulled hard back into its bad old ways of Jew-hatred, now thinly dressed up as opposition to the government of Israel that has been repeatedly elected and supported by the majority of Jews in Israel. We have seen repeated demands, from Western Europe to American universities, for the economic destruction of the one nation in the world with a Jewish majority population. Now comes news of another advanced technology innovation from that most hated of states.

Israeli scientists: ‘In a few weeks, we will have coronavirus vaccine’
Israeli scientists are on the cusp of developing the first vaccine against the novel coronavirus, according to Science and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis. If all goes as planned, the vaccine could be ready within a few weeks and available in 90 days, according to a release.
For the past four years, a team of MIGAL scientists has been developing a vaccine against infectious bronchitis virus (IBV), which causes a bronchial disease affecting poultry. The effectiveness of the vaccine has been proven in preclinical trials carried out at the Veterinary Institute
In preclinical trials, the team demonstrated that the oral vaccination induces high levels of specific anti-IBV antibodies, Katz said.
“Let’s call it pure luck,” he said. “We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.”
But after scientists sequenced the DNA of the novel coronavirus causing the current worldwide outbreak, the MIGAL researchers examined it and found that the poultry coronavirus has high genetic similarity to the human one, and that it uses the same infection mechanism, which increases the likelihood of achieving an effective human vaccine in a very short period of time, Katz said.
If this proves out, do you suppose Bernie Sanders and Ilhan Omar will be happy to swallow the oral vaccine?Published in
