A Seattle man who claimed to have created a COVID-19 vaccine months before Pfizer or Moderna now faces federal charges. John Stine built the lab with equipment he bought on eBay. He then injected himself and 30 others with the mixture, which authorities call an “untested, untried and potentially unsafe” substance. He charged up to $1,000 per injection. Stine denies wrongdoing. One of President Biden’s top pandemic advisors foresees a “hurricane” of deaths from the COVID-19 variants spreading.
