Has mankind ever worked together to explicitly help all human beings? No.

Would you like to see, in your lifetime, one such precedent? 

Such a historic moment is at hand!

A worldwide cooperative effort to come up with an effective, inexpensive Covid-19 vaccine, at the earliest time possible, to be administered to ALL human beings for FREE!

Is this a pipe dream? Let's see a cost estimate.

Here is a cost estimate: The US has ordered 100 million doses of a vaccine from Pfizer that works out to be about $40 per person. At this price, the cost for the 7.8 billion people in the world is $312 billion - only 1/10 of the cost of our wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. 

China, the European Union, Japan, Russia, England and other nations will each want to bear a significant share of that cost. The 2000+ billionaires in the world, with a total net worth of $8 trillion will want to help. If they contribute 1/100 of their net worth, it'll be $80 billion dollars. Even I, a retired professor, will want to donate at least $400 - 10 times the cost of 1 complete dose. Millions of other individuals will likely do more. So COST IS NOT A PROBLEM, even supposing the cost per dose doesn't come down later.

Three Problems Remain, however.

Problem 1The protective duration a Covid-19 vaccine may be too short - only 3 to 12 months-, according to Dr. Fauci's guesstimate .

Problem 2The most highly touted US Vaccines are recently known to require ultra low temperatures for storage. Such small technological problems are likely to be encountered by most, if not all, vaccines currently being developed anywhere in the world. Such problems, including drastically increasing the protective duration, can be solved much faster with a worldwide cooperative effort.

Problem 3: The toughest problem is that we lack statesmen who will ENVISION this godsend opportunity hidden behind the awful virus attack. The attack is without regard to national borders, race, religion and gender. It has caused 24 million illnesses or injuries, 800,000 deaths, besides wrecking the world's economy. Therefore, it is an ideal time to call for all nations, all races, all religions to work together to repel this attack QUICKLY.

Pitch in to wake up our political leaders

80-20 has called on YOU to contact the political VIPs you know, to consider the following idea:
For the Presidents of the U.S. and China to jointly call for the renewal of global free and open exchange of scientific information, focusing on distributing an effective & inexpensive vaccine against Covid-19 at the earliest possible date that is FREE to the world.
A US Senator has promised me, 14 days ago, to pass the above idea to Biden's campaign foreign policy leadership team. 

BTW, here is another reason why we are running a "DUMP TRUMP" campaign. His "America First" campaign is the anti-thesis to the idea for all mankind working together to repel this Covid-19 attack QUICKLY!!! Trump's narrow nationalistic outlook, at least in the matter of finding the best vaccine QUICKLY, hurts all mankind, including Americans.
