DARPA Races To Create a "Firebreak" Treatment for the Coronavirus

When DARPA launched its Pandemic Preparedness Platform (P3) program two years ago, the pandemic was theoretical. It seemed like a prudent idea to develop a quick response to emerging infectious diseases. Researchers working under the program sought ways to confer instant (but short-term) protection from a dangerous virus or bacteria.

Today, as the novel coronavirus causes a skyrocketing number of COVID-19 cases around the world, the researchers are racing to apply their experimental techniques to a true pandemic playing out in real time. “Right now, they have one shot on goal,” says DARPA program manager Amy Jenkins. “We’re really hoping it works.”

The P3 program’s plan was to start with a new pathogen and to “develop technology to deliver medical countermeasures in under 60 days—which was crazy, unheard of,” says Jenkins. The teams have proven they can meet this ambitious timeline in previous trials using the influenza and Zika viruses. Now they’re being asked to pull off the same feat with the new coronavirus, which more formally goes by the name SARS-CoV-2 and causes the illness known as COVID-19.

Des Moines mayor declares state of emergency over Iowa's coronavirus 'community spread'

Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie has declared a state of emergency, prohibiting gatherings of more than 250 people on public property.

Cownie signed the proclamation Sunday, less than a day after Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds announced the state's first case of "community spread" of the novel coronavirus. The designation means COVID-19 has spread from an unknown source and isn't linked to travel.

Reynolds announced the case was linked to Dallas County, which includes Des Moines' western suburbs. In a news conference Sunday, Cownie said that case "opened a lot of people’s eyes."

The item to which you were referring was about testing a treatment rather than a vaccine. But a test of Moderna's experimental vaccine also began today. It was just 64 days ago that China identified the coronavirus to WHO, and both a treatment and a vaccine are in testing.

The other stat that I heard is that it will be at least a year before they have a vaccine that can be administered to the general population.

This is going to be a very loooong year!

As I posted in another thread, the FDA's testing and approval process is haunted by Thalidomide and DES. To use an analogy I've read elsewhere, if "safety" and "speed" are two pans in a pan balance, the FDA process starts with an anvil in the "safety" pan.

How so?


How about a temporary short term measure, to save lives?

BTW South Coast Plaza, a favorite of visitors from Asia, closed today.

An Asian owned gun store in San Gabrial Valley, reported increased gun sales. I presume they are selling to area Asians, fearing attacks over their ethnicity.

Way beyond Ironic, since many medical personnel are Asians, walking into the fire every day to help people.

A temporary measure will be OK, unless/until people start to get the notion the National Government is lying about the need.  :shrug:

In the real world, peope are dying, shopping panic is taking place, govt. from highest to most local is implementing shelter-in-place" isolation, to "flatten the curve" and minimize the spread.

I think they have studied nations that did well, (So. Korea) and those that did poorly (Italy)

I hear the strong indication is the shutdown is the best course of action.

My wife's friend living in Harbin China reported they were free after 6 weeks of confinement, indicating the isolation worked there.

Finally I may be wrong. We remain in the :Fog of War" and determining the "truth" is a work in progress

Trump urges public to avoid crowds of 10 or more people
•Streamed live 12 hours ago
Fox News

He looks lucid.  He coudn't avoid patting his own back for where we find ourselves, but he has a course of action, and a health guideline.  His experts were informative, and President Trump also answered a lot of questions well.  He said most the media has been fair.  He said the Senate is negotiating with the House on a package.  He said he is working closely with the state governors.  He said the best thing he could do for the Stock Market is to get us through this virus.

I think that is a message that voters want to hear.  This was a really good press conference for President Trump  happy77

He is now ranting about the media on twitter in his tireless effort to combat COVID-19.   :thud:

SF Bay Area counties began a three week quasi-lockdown, necessary trips only allowed, except for necessary businesses (e.g. stores, banks, medical offices and hospitals). Mrs. S in CA is working at home and I'll probably just be at home. The three week "shelter in place" duration extends beyond when our daughter is scheduled to fly back to China, so I'm not sure how she'll be affected.

Trump, White House Coronavirus Task Force holds press briefing
•Streamed live 2 hours ago

Fox News

After a good performance yesterday President Trump was back to his usual unscripted barrage of vague.

"Progress is being made.  A very substantial increase in testing. 
The states are very much involved, and they have been involved from the begining, but we're stepping it up as much as we can.
I am speaking to lots of people and meeting lots of people.  Everybody is working strongly. 
The testing procedures are going well, and I think it's going to be something really great if it's done properly."
Then he kissed Gov Cuomo's ass

He eventually announced he was voiding Hippa laws concerning telehealth, and would not enforce infractions.

His back up dancers really shined today.
Pence was great at praising the President and good at promoting the 15-day guideline. 
He announced a public service ad campaign from the CDC, and a plea from private business for industrial masks. 
Mnuchin announced the purchase of a trillion dollar from the Fed and a 90 day tax extension.  Mnuchin also said he has talked with Pelosi twice today
Adml Brett Giroir USPSH said 31,878 test had been conducted by public labs like the CDC and 27,000 clinical test have been conducted, with 8,200 conducted yesterday. 
Since the first confirmed US test about 2 months ago on Jan 20th we have barely performed 50K tests. 
It's a pathetic figure because South Korea has been doing 10K per day for weeks but then they didn't go home for 4 day weekends like Majority Leader McConnell.

Dr. Birx asked young people to stop bar hoping, and promised the administration was committed to a real time website documenting statistics. 
She admitted that "Remember, all of these tests, the high speed tests were approved last Friday, last Friday night, and last Thursday night," when asked why less than 60K tests had been administered.
I didn't mind that much because I know they were lying their asses off weeks ago when they promised a million tests.

Dr Fauci was great.  "You don't want to put your loved ones at risk." I trust him.

Trump - "We are looking to save the maximum number of lives" which was awesome, but then he said he thought it was a pandemic before calling it a pandemic was cool

Near the end President Trump heaped great praise on the advisors standing next to him.  Then he moved on to the Congress "Democrats and Republicans." 
It was very classy and smart, but then Trump got into his usual rat/media ain't fair to me whine, and he was pulled for his nap.

90 minutes of questions and answers.  I'm impressed.  All in all this should have been a very good presser for the President.

Trump, Coronavirus Task Force hold a press conference at White House
Fox News

A third really good press conference lasting a hour with another press conference announced for later today or tomorrow morning.  I almost hate to be critical at all, because I think these press conferences have been good for the President, the people, and the markets, but the President was as usual the weakest speaker.  He said stuff like "it's the invisible enemy, that's always the toughest enemy, the invisible enemy, but we're going to defeat the invisible enemy.  I think we are going to do it even faster than we thought. and it will be a complete victory. It will be a total victory."  On the other hand he announced invoking the defense production act.  That sounds very important, even though nobody really explained why.  His advisers were excellent.  Lots of news, statistics, policy reinforcement, and announcements.

The President consistently defended the 15 day guidelines, he consistently spoke about bipartisanship, and he shouted out to Gov Cuomo several times.  I found all of that comforting and reinforcing my unrealistic fantasy that President Trump is focused on this virus, and the panic surrounding it, to the exclusion of all else.

I missed Dr Fauci, and Mnuchin.  I'm also waiting for the introduction of the head of the Pandemic Response Office that a fellow Briefer informed me was not dissolved by President Trump in 2018.  @Mesaclone   

2 things did aggravate me.  President Trump said the virus snuck up on us, and he wastes a lot of time calling the virus "the Chinese virus" and then unconvincingly defending it as not racist.

Courtesy of @Hoodat and DailyCaller.com I added this to the OP timeline:

China/WHO claims no evidence of  human to human transmission of corona virus: January 14, 2020, https://twitter.com/WHO/status/1217043229427761152 ,

Quote
World Health Organization (WHO)
@WHO
Jan 14
Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China.

I did save a Snip of the Tweet in case it disappears. Intentional or unintentional, this very wrong information was a hindrance to countries trying to gauge appropriate action and would likely have caused some delay. Depending on when WHO did their about-face, Trump's January 17th action, the beginning of screening passengers arriving from China, may have been despite WHO's very wrong information.
