It is a rare bit of good news we have to share in general, and especially in 2020, so we’re taking it! Less than a year after the broader world found out about an emerging new coronavirus epidemic in Wuhan we now have two very promising vaccine options applying for emergency use authorization in the United States with more around the corner. There are some potential hiccups looming, mostly around manufacturing and distribution and state-level decisions around prioritizing who gets first and second round access to the vaccine. But, the hardest parts of the process are done and it’s getting easier to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
If you enjoy our free newsletters, the team at Zeihan on Geopolitics asks you to consider donating to Feeding America.
The economic lockdowns in the wake of COVID-19 left many without jobs and additional tens of millions of people, including children, without reliable food. Feeding America works with food manufacturers and suppliers to provide meals for those in need and provides direct support to America’s food banks.
Food pantries are facing declining donations from grocery stores with stretched supply chains. At the same time, they are doing what they can to quickly scale their operations to meet demand. But they need donations – they need cash – to do so now.
Feeding America is a great way to help in difficult times.
The team at Zeihan on Geopolitics thanks you and hopes you continue to enjoy our work.
