Dr. Michael Mina is a Harvard epidemiologist and immunologist.
When the pandemic hit, he put aside all of his previous work to fight the virus. Since he has developed a strategy to stop the pandemic and is consulting governments to implement it. The strategy does not focus on the vaccine but on easy to produce, and even easier to use, paper strip rapid tests.
As the pandemic claims 1,7 million deaths, even with a speedy rollout, many more people will die before getting vaccinated; except they don't have to according to Dr. Mina’s plan.
