COVID-19 could be immediately conquered through empowering scientists with their dream tools in this article which they have been waiting for to achieve success

I propose to establish this game-changer, it is a self-funded global teamwork-oriented powerhouse medical research model organization empowered with video streaming conferencing technology and a fair/ smart energizing monetary reward upon finding vaccine/ cure by all members scientists involved in research of COVID19 of this global organization

Scientists can simultaneously work together daily in real-time in the same laboratory using state of the art type of equipment seen by each of them .they will have the indispensable tool for success in term of synchronization of knowledge/ creativity and daily progress of research visible minute by minute in real-time between all of them despite they could be tens of thousands of miles away from each other

Once my proposed global medical research organization is established, all charitable organizations, philanthropists, biopharmaceutical companies, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention( CDC ) , and world health organization (WHO) medical research laboratories and government medical research labs worldwide will allocate their medical research money which can easily add to billions of dollars and enrolling their manpower of researchers into such powerhouse research organization as being the most reliable competent smart effective practical vehicle of choice for the money well spent which by far outdate the current research model for the following facts

1- It will be most inclusive research model for all world scientists including the unknown ones who could have the most priceless brains working in humble modest poor labs but some of them could the ones who will conquer COVID 19 when they are given the chance to work in state of the art type labs without need for being physically there through video conferencing technology to synchronize knowledge and progress of research with rest of world scientists

2-current research model has resulted in decades after decades of bandage discoveries in form of advances in research for almost all diseases but without finding vaccine/cure for cancer, diabetes, AIDS, Alzheimer’s, multiple sclerosis, autism, and almost every other disease. Decades of proven failure by a dysfunctional medical research model who has taken the hard work of scientists down the drain

3-it will be a global self-funded organization which makes it easy to implement and maintain for being a financially sustainable organization with plenty of cash resources of billions from entities/individuals from all over the world

4-Tens of thousands of medical scientists who are members of my proposed global organization will form the board of directors who manage the steps of research

5-The promises to find vaccine/cure for coronavirus are promises which cannot be fulfilled because it was not fulfilled in the past for decades for almost all diseases by current dysfunctional research model

6-this current failed research model will be automatically abandoned by the scientists to join my proposed global research organization where their dreams will come true not only in finding cure/vaccine for all diseases but to stop human cell aging process where when the time arrives to pass away, it will happen when we are always young and healthy enjoying normal life activities

7-Scientists will certainly join my proposed organization as being the dream waiting for by medical scientists to replace the current research model which is based on flawed infrastructure due to the following,

(A) lack of global teamwork where researches work alone or within small groups and

B- lack of fair/smart financial incentive for scientists upon finding vaccine/ cure the current research model is a disincentivizing model where scientists/ entities spend many years/money without guarantee for rewards upon finding vaccine/cure, it is an energy killer research model My proposed model is based on guarantee incentive in advance before the start of the research where hundreds of millions to be divided between members of my proposed organization upon finding cure/vaccine, it is an energy booster research model

8-My proposed organization will subcontract a coordinating biotech consulting firm The biotech consulting firm will be hired through a bidding process the biotech consulting firm will set the requirements to join and maintain membership in my proposed organization

9-The biotech consulting firm will coordinate the progress of research through assigning different researchers to focus on resolving certain pieces of the puzzle of virus/bacteria /disease where the biotech consulting firm can easily finalize the structure of vaccine/cure in no time due to super-efficient / organized global teamwork infrastructure research model my proposed global research model will be based on fair/smart financial incentive for scientists upon finding vaccine/ cure where hundreds of millions will be divided between scientists who are members of the proposed organization

10-Scientists will be assigned into different groups to find cure/vaccine for different diseases where certain dollar value will be divided between members of each group upon finding cure/ Vaccine for a particular disease, however, on a temporary basis all the groups will join the Coronavirus research group

11-My proposed organization will offer voluntary free enrollment for tens of thousands of scientists

12-My proposed research model is a vibrant infrastructure with its perfect mix of two team players who cannot achieve the mission without each other, such a perfect mix is as follows, (A) the melting pot of global researchers and (B) the biotech consulting firm with its indispensable coordinating function

13-my proposed research model goes beyond necessity, it is a matter of life or death for our human civilization, it would be the best event in the history of mankind for the following two facts-coronavirus is a lethal killer that has demonstrated devastating capabilities of spreading like a bullet train we already watching the collapse of unsustainable hospital/health care system in the USA and all over the globe whose maximum capacity is overwhelmed by potential millions of corona patients.

14-There is an urgent need for this reliable competent smart effective practical medical research model to find immediate vaccine / cure for Covid 19 because society will face a painful financial / psychological /fear scenario of shifting back and forth between imposing then lifting social distancing

A-Lifting social distancing to go back to work to avoid dying from hunger but in the meantime facing the risk of death from exposure COVID 19 when at that time it is inevitable to see COVID 19 resurge again

B-Imposing social distancing where society stays home to be safe from exposure to COVID 19 but in the meantime facing the risk of creating a government hand out oriented society who does not pay taxes resulting in bankrupting all governments including the richest ones who will not have the funds for handouts anymore with potential global famine .!!

I propose to establish this game-changer smart efficient practical reliable urgently needed method to conquer COVID 19, it is a self-funded global teamwork-oriented powerhouse medical research model organization empowered with video streaming conferencing technology and a fair/ smart energizing monetary reward upon finding vaccine/ cure by all members scientists involved in research of COVID19 of this global organization
Scientists can simultaneously work together daily in real-time in the same laboratory using state of the art type of equipment seen by each of them who could be tens of thousands of miles away from each other

12-There is an urgent need for this reliable competent smart effective practical medical research model to find immediate vaccine/cure for COVID 19 because society will face a painful financial/psychological/fear scenario of shifting back and forth between imposing and lifting social distancing because the virus is still there

13-The organization could be immediately established without requiring funding/approval/endorsement by any entity /politicians, This paves the road for an instantaneous startup because it will be self-funded with billions for being the vehicle of choice for the money well spent by charitable organizations/philanthropists/universities research labs/governments labs /WHO labs/ CDC labs /biopharmaceuticals where all of them will merge into juggernaut global powerhouse medical research organization ready to roll up sleeves to conquer covid -19
