The likelihood that the vaccine of this company will meet expectations is 65%.
Top managers at Moderna, an American biotechnology company that previously announced that it is closest to inventing a coronavirus vaccine, have earned tens of millions of dollars in equity trading. It is reported by CNN.
It is known that the company’s shares soared 30% after the announcement of the imminent results of the development of the vaccine. According to reporters, Moderna CFO managed to earn the most, he became richer by $ 16.8 million.
CNN also adds that the likelihood that the vaccine of this company will meet expectations is 65%. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergic and Infectious Diseases of the United States, noted that so far there is not enough data on the drug being created to speak with confidence about the success of the vaccine.
Experts of the American television channel emphasize that the top managers of Moderna did not do anything illegal, but they believe that such earnings during a difficult situation related to coronavirus do not look quite worthy.
Earlier, an American company announced the successful testing of the drug mRNA-1273 in humans. She assures that after taking the vaccine, the participants in the experiment developed the same antibodies as those who had been ill with the coronavirus.
