Another massive US government grant.contract on vaccine development.,
this one to AstraZeneca.  Could explain why UK was working with US to
oppose strong open licensing language at the WHA.  (just as the Moderna
contracts for Swiss manufacturing shed light on the Swiss position).

Covid-19 roundup: BARDA hands AstraZeneca $1B-plus to race through PhIII
and ramp up fall deliveries of Oxford’s pandemic vaccine – Endpoints News

Natalie Grover

Allied with researchers at Oxford University on one of the leading vaccines
now in development for Covid-19, AstraZeneca reported that it has secured
more than $1 billion from BARDA for the development, production and
delivery of the vaccine, starting in the fall. The injection dwarfs the
additional £84 million ($102 million) in funding for 30 million doses (up
to 100 million doses) from the United Kingdom, which envisions inoculating
at least half its population by September.
