The problem is that they can't hire biologists who specialize in virology from today to tomorrow. Say you have allocated some money and can enter a rail file competition. As employees, in this ad-hoc way, employees, day laborers who unload wagons, polytechnics and other less specialized professions can be hired. But to have some capacity in this field, you need amazing training. Involvement for life. Especially if it is concrete research in the field of genetic analysis, viral proteins, modeling ways to find a gap in the viral entity, creating variants that have a chance to solve the problem. For this you needed hundreds and thousands of biologists to have access to high-performance equipment and all kinds of possible and impossible consumables, to the latest scientific literature, to participate in symposia, congresses, conferences and specialized workshops for years and decades… to have the understanding to give a chance. To work in networks. Now you don't have these people, because there was no money.
I have great respect for doctors. People who have agreed to spend many years of their lives to study at a very difficult college, then residency, specializations and so on. To be on the front line - in the fight against diseases of any kind - to help people live. Their life is not easy at all - to see so many situations with pain. For example, I did not have the ability to see such problems every day and to live my life in this way. Many of those who practice in the medical field end up having a certain detachment, that only in this way can they resist and exist on that invisible front. So, on the whole, doctors are all that humanity can have in the fight against disease. A kind of real saints, a kind of angels on Earth. That's all you can do. It's just that in this fight with covid… they're people in white robes.
