My confidence in science remains firm, despite irresponsible media coverage conferring apparent legitimacy on the manifestly ignorant, irresponsible statements of cynical (or perhaps merely stupid) public figures. My brother designed clinical trials and interpreted their results at the NCI for years. The political embroilment of the search for a safe, effective COVID-19 vaccine increases the caution with which I would normally evaluate the results. When my statistician brother gives me a green light, I’ll be ready to go; not sooner.
