There’s all sorts of political risk

Imagine that Gilead really does have the cure for coronavirus in remdesivir. You can just imagine Owen Jones screaming that no capitalist should profit, can’t you?

Gilead, Remdesivir, COVID-19 And Political Risk

  1. The U.S. has spent (wasted) $2,000,000,000,000 on CV-19 relief.

    If Remdesivir solves the problem, then 10% of that seems reasonable. Two hundred billion USD. Plus another three hundred billion from the rest of the world. So half-a-trillion dollars seems fair.

    What is that per dose?

    $500,000,000,000 / a hundred million doses (?) = $5000 US per dose.

    Plus this will retain an incentive for others to continue their research into a cure.
