Mistake of the RKI: The thump-paper from the Berliner Corona-Central

A wave of euphoria, so at least it looked for a fate of Moment of the pandemic's history, was the first detectable and acute side-effect of the Russian Corona-vaccine "Sputnik V". Day one after its questionable admission there was not only a lot of questions and criticism, but also the big announcements. The Iranian President Hassan Rouhani about reported to his Cabinet, according to the Iranian Agency Irna has a "breakthrough in vaccine development", Donald Trump, in turn, the spendier pants was pulled over, and promised an additional 1.5 billion dollars for a hundred million doses of the vaccine from the American manufacturer Moderna, and the otherwise rather careful to bräsige Robert-Koch-Institute (RKI) in Berlin daily position paper announced, quite surprisingly, in a afternoon to the short - to medium-term objectives of the national Corona-strategy in the country, the "availability of a vaccine (possibly more) until the fall of 2020" to. This fall! Wow! Corona-Management with a Bang, it was thought there. The term "Preliminary forecasts", says the RKI-paper exactly, "the possible".

If this were Russian forecasts, in the first Moment, was not found. In any case, resist Hyper voice optimistic RKI notice until the final resolution of the puzzle, each common forecast. Even Donald Trump, whose repeated promises to want to be the first American Covid-19-vaccines until the beginning of November to distribute, was understood by all as a challenge to his re-election in November, is far from his most important Corona-adviser, the immune experts Anthony Fauci, been carefully corrected.

at the beginning of 2021 to mid-2021 is for him to be realistic, the latter date was advertised a few days ago, among other things, the German research Minister Anja Karliczek. The experts of the world health organization and in Germany for the vaccine-approval, the competent Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have now both agreed to also almost universally on the formula "vaccine approval in the ideal case, from the spring of 2021".

this could have been an exciting story if the RKI is really a vaccine developments were available, which indicated a much earlier vaccination against Sars-CoV-2 call. Unfortunately, this turned out to be a "Mistake". The position paper with preliminary forecasts for the autumn of 2020 had been a many-month-old early Version of the position paper to be put online by mistake, as I said, it was informed by a spokeswoman for the RKI on Wednesday evening. In the last few months several times revised the document to include in the current latest Version anyway, the surprising autumn forecast, a long time ago. However, the older Version with the questionable paragraph by the competent RKI has been released and from the communication Department also released.

"We do not expect, of course, currently, that already this autumn one of the currently tested vaccines," said RKI spokeswoman. For the position paper responsible for drawing professionals to the Institute would make the document again, and then updated again to publish. How many of the six vaccines approved by then, which are now in the third and decisive test phase with several thousands of volunteers, it is difficult to predict.
