Don’t belittle so easily differing opinionsFor the imbeciles out there dabbling conspiracy theories about Pfizer's announcement: you are so right, it's a deep state conspiracy fueled by Bill Gates, 5G the illuminati, Joe Biden, Socialist takeover, elections stealing, flying cows and most importantly your dead brain cells.
For those interested in the science of vaccines, the milestones of a trial cannot be accurately timed for a very simple reason: it depends on when trial patients get infected. Now to be 100% fair Trump did speed it up quite bit by letting the virus go rampant and unchecked so much so that people involved in trial got infected much quicker than expected. Unfortunately for him, he didn't cause the death of enough people to get his vaccine verdict soon enough to save his election efforts.
It coule be simply that they found the result of that trial 2 weeks or 1 month prior and decided to delay the announcement for political reasons
There is no doubt that the economy crashing hurt Trump and it is not unreasonable to think that results could have been delayed to invest as much as possible in the situation in the election results
The date of announcement is very fishy, those results weren’t apparent just 6 days prior? It didn’t suddenly appear to be 90%, they could have released a statement before that date saying we’re at 80% effectiveness so far for example
