Whether or not President Donald Trump is able to reverse what appears to have been a well-orchestrated election steal, if presidential historians are fair he will go down in the books as the leader who brought us a brand-new, effective anti-viral treatment for a new coronavirus in record time.
Thanks to his “Operation Warp Speed,” COVID-19 vaccines are being prepared for shipment as we write this, with expected first deliveries beginning Monday morning.
OWS CEO Gen. Gustave Perna told a press conference Saturday morning, “The first shipments should arrive Monday morning and extensive coordination will ensure that this occurs.”
Shipments were being readied just hours after the Food and Drug Administration approved the vaccine for emergency use authorization, Breitbart News reported.
“Make no mistake, distribution has begun,” he said. “Now, boxes are being packed and loaded with vaccine and within the next 24 hours they will move the vaccine from the Pfizer facility to the UPS and FedEx hubs. Then it will go up to the locations nationwide which were identified by the states and the territories.”
Breitbart notes further:
Perna said he expects 145 sites to receive the vaccine on Monday, another 425 sites on Tuesday, and the final 66 sites on Wednesday to complete the initial delivery of the Pfizer orders for the vaccine. He said at the sites, the vaccine will marry up with ancillary kits that include needles, syringes, and other supplies necessary to administer the vaccine.
He said he expected to have distributed 40 million doses at the end of the month. He said Operation Warp Speed is also posturing to distribute the Moderna vaccine if it also receives emergency use authorization by the FDA.
Perna praised all those who worked as part of Operation Warp Speed to establish a foundation for distribution.
“It is through the foundation established by the incredible experts of the CDC, the capability of commercial industry including Pfizer, McKesson, FedEx, UPS, Walgreens, CVS, and others, and most importantly, the governors, public health officers, and health care communities, that this plan will succeed,” he said.
“Because of the energy of the whole of America approach, I am 100 percent confident that we will distribute safely this precious commodity, this vaccine needed to defeat the enemy COVID,” he said.
He added that 100,000 Americans across the country have already been vaccinated successfully because they took part in the clinical trials.
“They were the true first recipients of the vaccine. They deserve our respect and appreciation. Without them, we could not be here today — true American heroes,” he said.
He went on to compare what’s coming to D-Day, which he described as the “beginning of the end” of World War II. But, he said the job isn’t done.
“We are not done until every American has access to the vaccine, until every American that wants it, receives it,” he said.
Now, when infections begin to fall dramatically, and if Biden ultimately takes the oath of office, we’re making the prediction here and now that the left and Democrats will credit the ‘new president’s leadership’ when in fact, the COVID-19 vaccination plan, from start to end, was planned and executed by the man Biden will succeed, Donald J. Trump.
