Two Top Vaccine Regulators to Leave U.S. FDA

Reuters reported:

Two of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s top vaccine regulators plan to leave the agency in the next several months, the FDA said on Tuesday.

The FDA is “confident in the expertise and ability of our staff to continue our critical public health work, including evaluating COVID-19 vaccines,” spokesperson Stephanie Caccomo said in an emailed statement.

Dr. Marion Gruber, director of the FDA’s Office of Vaccines Research and Review (OVRR), plans to retire on Oct. 31, according to a memo from Peter Marks, director of the agency’s Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER). OVRR is part of CBER.

Gruber had been with the FDA for 32 years.

Gruber’s deputy, Dr. Philip Krause, also plans to leave the FDA in November, according to Marks.

Anthony Fauci Lied Before Congress and the American People, but Will President Biden Do Anything?

Paul D. Thacker reported:

A new investigative documentary by the U.K.’s Channel 4 detailed some of the strongest evidence to date that the COVID19 pandemic may have started from a lab leak in Wuhan, China. At the very least, the documentary’s interviews with experts and review of documents made explicit how China has misled the world about its research with dangerous pathogens while it promoted ludicrous conspiracies that the pandemic may have started in the United States.

The documentary clarified one other point: Anthony Fauci lied before Congress and the American public when he claimed during a congressional hearing that he has not funded gain-of-function research conducted by the Wuhan Institute of Virology. But President Biden has campaigned on honesty and decency. The question now for President Biden is, “What will you do with Fauci now that he has broken the law and violated the public trust by lying before Congress?”

White House Issues Warning About Dangers of COVID Delta Variant

PBS reported:

The White House on Friday issued a stark warning about the COVID-19 Delta variant and its transmissibility, urging Americans once again to get vaccinated if they haven’t yet done so.

Speaking at the White House briefing, Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said the variant “spreads more than twice as easily from one person to another, and it’s spreading rapidly.”

She said both vaccinated and unvaccinated people infected with Delta “have higher viral loads, meaning more virus in their body than with previous variants,” adding that the high viral loads makes the virus more likely to spread.

Biden Administration’s Pathetic COVID Origin Investigation Only Helps China

The Hill reported:

We need to know how this killer virus happened. We need to know if there was some intentionality behind the virus’s creation and escape, or whether it was a complete accident of nature.

After a 90-day sprint study into the origins of SARS-CoV-2 by the IC, ordered by President Biden, here’s the answer released on Aug. 27: We don’t know. As an intelligence product, it is a shameful embarrassment. Small wonder it was released on a Friday afternoon while the news media were fixated on Afghanistan. But it shouldn’t be swept under some White House rug.

You can read the Director of National Intelligence’s official unclassified “key takeaways” of the 90-day review here. It won’t take long; it’s only a page and a half, and it reflects what 90 days will yield — i.e., not much. The 600,000 dead were given short shrift.

San Antonio Zoo Giving Lions, Tigers and Monkeys COVID-19 Vaccine

CHRON reported:

The San Antonio Zoo announced Monday it is scheduled to receive its first shipment of a COVID-19 vaccine distributed by the veterinary pharmaceutical company Zoetis. The drug has been authorized by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. The first doses will be administered in the coming weeks.

“Our veterinary and animal care teams have worked incredibly hard to protect and prevent our animals from contracting COVID-19 through increased disinfection, personal protective equipment and new guest procedures,” said Tim Morrow, the zoo’s president and CEO. “Vaccinating our animals is one more important step.”
