What an arrogant point of view to take - the only reason someone might disagree with my obviously perfect and well reasoned world view (despite the demonstrated past gaps in understanding of fundamental principles of social science) is if you're getting paid to oppose me.
This arrogance is precisely why the Western system is doomed in the short term and won't recover until the post-colonial hangover is complete and a century of humiliation has humbled attitudes.

Who is 'she'? China? China felt the results were likely to be safe, and because it is such a simple design, China is probably correct. It isn't an experimental viral load technique - exposure to dead virus cells has been standard protocol since we rubbed babies on cows to innoculate small pox.
In any case - no available vaccine has completed phase 3 trials as of yet. Not the UK. Not the German. Not the Russian. Not the American.
