Russia Approves Coronavirus Vaccine Before Completing Tests

The country became the first in the world to approve a possible vaccine against the virus, despite warnings from the global authorities against cutting corners.

MOSCOW — Russia has become the first country in the world to approve a vaccine for the coronavirus, President Vladimir V. Putin announced on Tuesday, though global health authorities say the vaccine has yet to complete critical, late-stage clinical trials to determine its safety and effectiveness.

Mr. Putin, who told a cabinet meeting on Tuesday morning that the vaccine “works effectively enough,” said that his own daughter had taken it. And in a congratulatory note to the nation, he thanked the scientists who developed the vaccine for “this first, very important step for our country, and generally for the whole world.”

The major powers are locked in a global race for a vaccine that President Trump, Mr. Putin and China’s president, Xi Jinping, are treating as a proxy war for their personal leadership and competing national systems.

 The United States, with an effort called Operation Warp Speed, and China have poured billions into the pursuit, and health officials worry that Russia is trying to snatch a victory by cutting corners.

By skipping large-scale clinical trials, the Russian dash for a vaccine has raised widespread concern that it is circumventing vital steps — and potentially endangering people — in order to score global propaganda points.

Russia’s vaccine sped through early monkey and human trials with apparent success. But Moscow was cautioned just last week by the World Health Organization not to stray from the usual methods of testing a vaccine for safety and efficacy.

Beyond that, the United States, Canadian and British governments have all accused Russian state hackers of trying to steal vaccine research. Russian officials have denied the accusations, and say their vaccine is based on a design developed years ago by Russian scientists to counter the Ebola virus.

A vaccine is seen as the most likely avenue for defeating the novel coronavirus and alleviating a worldwide health crisis that has killed at least 734,900 people and decimated national economies. Western regulators have said repeatedly that they do not expect a vaccine to become widely available before the end of the year at the earliest.

Around the world, more than 30 vaccines — out of a total of more than 165 under development — are now in various stages of human trials. Currently, eight vaccines have entered the final phase of mass human testing, including ones produced by Moderna in the United States, Oxford University and AstraZeneca in Britain and several Chinese companies.

Some of those Chinese companies have been accused of cutting corners themselves. One offered the vaccine to employees at the national oil company, while another has teamed up with the People’s Liberation Army to conduct human trials.

New Toll Road up Bali's west coast will improve traffic flow and increase property values.

Note This Diagram is the current route from Denpasar to Gilimanuk .

Note This Diagram is a very huge guess at where final toll road will run.
As one who has travelled dozens of times on this road, especially on my many ventures to Java over the last 23 years I can tell you it is one of the slowest and most dangerous roads in the world right now.

I can guarantee you many lives will be saved once this toll road is complete.

I can also assume that properties along the way, especially Beachfront & Beachview properties more than an 1 1/2 to 2 hours from Denpasar will increase in value dramatically.

I am very bullish on the surfing village of Balian which is one the most beautiful places in Bali.

400 % to 1,900 % Increases

To give an example of how of how much property values can increase in the coming four to five years I am reminded of the new four lane road road that runs up the east coast of Bali from northern Sanur and ends at close to Padang Bai, the Eastern Bali ferry terminal.

I began scoping out properties 21 years ago while the road was under construction.

 The first property I sold to a client was 10 only Million Rupiah Per hundred square metres. It is now at least 200 million per hundred square metres. A whopping 1,900 % Increase

Beachfront properties sold closer to Sanur for as little as 40 million per hundred square metres are now selling for 500 million per hundred square metres. An 1,150 % increase

Buy on the Rumour Sell on the Fact.

There is a famous saying in the investment market that took me years of trial and error experiences to learn before I successfully invested in commodities and stocks.

The saying is "Buy on the rumour and sell on the fact."

What that means is by the time you hear on CNN that something is a good investment such as gold it's probably too late.

You have to buy when solid, reliable research indicates there's going to be a major change in demand or supply that will affect gold prices.

The same thing is true of real estate. This rumoured road for many years now appears to finally becoming a reality such as the toll road that runs from Denpasar to the airport and Nusa Dua.

Properties still available for only IDR 30 million ($2,000) per hundred square metres.

The beautiful thing about buying on the rumour of this new toll road is properties along it's route are selling at ridiculous low prices.

For example you can buy this 7,700 m² property with beach view of fabulous Bali on beach only an eight minute drive away for as little as IDR 30 million per hundred square metres.


This gorgeous Bali distress priced real estate features Bali beach View land Located only 2.2 km, or approximately eight minutes from one of Bali’s most famous beaches, BALIAN.

It is only a one-hour drive from the busy Seminyak area.

Although it has plenty of restaurants and hotels to cater to your desire for great cuisine with fantastic sunset views it still maintain its Village ambiance. 

It has some of the best surf in the world.

This 7700 m² (1.92 acre) Bali property is perfect for development of luxurious villas or residential homes. It could also be a great long-term investment for land banking. 

Priced at only $158,888 this Bali property is priced for quick sale by a distressed owner who needs cash during the coronavirus crisis.
She is selling it for almost $100,000 off of her previous asking price.

No doubt it will not last long at this price so act quick to inspect or ask for further information.

Distress Priced Ridiculously Low-Priced Luxury Villa Only $99,888

This ridiculously low-priced Villa is the lowest priced Bali Luxury Villa ever for sale by us.

Since there is only a little over six years remaining on the original lease it is priced to sell at below what it would rent for.

A smart buyer would purchase now while there is a possibility of renewing the lease for another 25 years for an additional $99,880.

This would still make it the lowest priced four-bedroom villa available out of 55 Bali Luxury Villas in Sanur.

Therefore, your cost for 31 years would only be approximate $6,500 per year.

This villa can easily rent out for $36,000 a year for short-term tourists or $25,000 to $30,000 year for long-term rentals therefore the gross profit is 400% to 500% per.

Frankly if I had the cash right now I would jump on this in a heartbeat.
But alas, coronavirus has left many of us asset rich and cash poor making this such a unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

One of Bali's most sought-after locations:

This large 650 m2 (7,000 Sq. Ft.) luxurious villa is in one of the most desirable, prestigious, residential areas of Bali on the border of the brand-new Hyatt Regency Hotel. (Formerly Bali Hyatt).
Frequent mature tourists enjoy the quaint resort area of Sanur which was the first beach resort on Bali decades ago and has developed into a unique community of boutique hotels such as the new Hyatt Regent and Fairmont five-star resorts.
Sanur now demands some of the highest residential real-estate prices in Bali due to heavy demand from foreign and local buyers who desire to live in this fast-developing quality resort community.
