The United States of America alleges yesterday that hackers from China are trying to steal COVID-19 vaccine research from the U.S.
As there is no proven remedy or cure for COVID-19, an impeccable vaccine is the only foreseeable solution. This allows nations and economies around the world to fully reopen. Then the inventors of the vaccine rake in millions of dollars.
There are obvious tensions between the two superpowers as markets shake and nosedive underscoring warnings from the US Federal Reserve that prolonged shutdowns could cause “lasting damage.”
Plans to gradually re-open economies continue in Europe. Some of the countries hope to catch in on the summer tourism market.
Many economic stakeholders are ready to dare the second wave of infections that have been largely theorised to be inevitable as life returns to normalcy without a cure, therapy, or remedy for Covid-19.
This underlines why two U.S security warns that hackers linked to Beijing are attempting to steal research and intellectual property related to treatments and vaccines.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) said (though any evidence) that: “China’s efforts to target these sectors pose a significant threat to our nation’s response to COVID-19.”
There have been allegations and counter-allegations between Washington and Beijing on lots of conspiracies since the outbreak of the pandemic that has killed close to 300,000 people with almost about 4,5million people being infected.
America, with about confirmed almost 1.430, 348 cases of the virus and about 85,200 deaths as of today May 14, often constantly blamed China for the outbreak that first emerged in China late last year.
