nice vid, Making money online mostly as this recent pandemic has lead to unemployment around the world, it is best advised to get involved in crypto currency mostly Bitcoin as the largest crypto asset. I would have to say this to cryptocurrency traders who are willing to accumulate as many coin right now, because i believe this is the opportunity we all have been waiting for. Only holders would suffer and cry if they refuse to trade and take advantage of the recent fall in btc price. Well as a trader, it is much more advisable to make use of every market opportunity wisely which i have been doing ever since the last bear market by trading with a working strategy/signals which is being provided by a pro trader known as Aaron Addison and it's been so profitable despite the recent downtrend. In my first month, i was able to grow my initials from 1.2btc to a total of 6.9btc trading with Aaron's daily signals which you would agree is a very good profits. I would advice you take this chance to buy and with the little you hold, you can accumulate more by trading with Aaron Addison's daily signals, Aaron is a true resource in space today and can be contacted via *Whatspp: (+17142945732) and Telgram @Aaron_signal77*for inquiries into profitable trading systems..
Update: Gilead Sciences to charge US government $2,340 for remdesivir. ONLY FIVE DOSES REQUIRED!!!! $500 per dose!!!! It is reported in the U.K. that Liverpool University worked out that it costs $9.32 to manufacture one 10-day course of remdesivir treatment - and that includes an fair profit’. !!!!

The only vaccine the USA will get is from the U.K., that’s why they gave British research $1billion only weeks ago. British pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca will manufacture and distribute the British vaccine AT COST PRICE! Contrast this with American behaviour, the USA have bought the worlds supply of remdesivir, leaving everybody else without!!

British vaccine supplies to the US look doubtful - I hope!

that´s like saying China should take over the USA, because it will save like 50 trillion instead of 100 trillion

Taking advantage of those that need money the most.

The antiviral medicine remdesivir from Gilead Sciences failed to speed the
improvement of patients with Covid-19 or prevent them from dying,
according to results from a long-awaited clinical trial conducted in
China. Gilead, however, said the data suggest a “potential benefit.”

A summary of the study results was
inadvertently posted to the website of the World Health Organization and
seen by STAT on Thursday, but then removed.

why not just charge as much as someone´s life is worth, so a milionaire would pay say 1 million

This is exactly why people are railing against the US medical system. Making drugs that expensive and the CEOs of these companies get millions in profit off people's suffering.

Why, when the government FAILED to protect us, are we going to foot this bill.

Write your elected officials- the government should foot the cost for everything.

We are the victim's. Victim's of the virus. Victim's of the government WE PAY to represent us and EPICALLY failed!

Why are we getting "it" without even a kiss on the cheek?

We did get that "GREAT" stimulus check, how long ago?? Was that payment for taking "it" up the "Oops" now?

This was government funded treatment.

This is outrageous. Healthcare premiums will go up. Co Pays will go up etc...

We don't fail to pay our taxes to thee out of touch, teet sucking politicians. WHY, then are we rooting this bill for THEIR failure?

There are vast amounts of profits to be made off of Covid-19. It's a big moneymaker for big Pharma. Money makes the world go around, always has. Remember, life is not a Disney movie people.

And now you know why a prophylactic, generic drug treatment which costs a hundred bucks per patient was so roundly condemned as 'dangerous'.

This scam is a shame !
If just 1 million people buy it, that will be over 3 trillion dollars. Greed is astounding.
After paying $3k there is no guarantee of full recovery from this medication. Someone could spend that much and still die.
