Why Are Moderna Executives Selling Stock While Developing A Coronavirus Vaccine?

NPR – 9/4/20

“The insiders are making plenty of profit and they’re mostly doing it with our money,” said Margarida Jorge, a campaign director with the group Lower Drug Prices Now. “I’m absolutely for deploying public money in the interests of public health and the public good. But we don’t have any commitment from the administration that any of this investment is ultimately going to benefit real people.”

Statement on the US refusing to join the WHO’s global COVID vaccine efforts

“The only way to beat a global pandemic is to get it under control everywhere, and that means we need vaccines that are safe, affordable and accessible to everyone. Instead of listening to public health experts about how to respond to a global pandemic, President Trump has repeatedly put politics ahead of our health, resulting in over 180,000 deaths and an economy in shambles.”

Statement on vaccine trials cut short by political pressure

“Let’s be 100% clear on what is happening here: President Trump is putting his own political agenda and timeline ahead of science, reality and fact so he can create an ‘October Surprise’ and a vaccine before Election Day. Trump is not interested in the people’s health, he is only interested in the health of his re-election campaign. And in politicizing this process, he is putting public health at grave risk.”

Statement on President Trump’s missed deadline on most-favored nation Executive Order

“No one should be surprised by President Trump’s inaction on lowering drug prices. After three and a half years of endless empty rhetoric, he still hasn’t actually done anything to take away drug corporations’ power to charge whatever they want or help millions of people struggling to afford prescriptions medicines. This Executive Order was never about lowering drug prices for struggling patients. Full stop.”
