According to the CNBC television company, the Grand Challenge division and its current goal are secretly “Project Gesundheit” in Amazon’s subsoil, which means “Health Project” in German. Judging by the data, we are talking about a universal tool against the most common disease on Earth – ordinary colds.
Amazon refused to discuss issues related to Grand Challenge, but also did not deny the existence of such a unit. Probably the truth is somewhere nearby, and the subsidiaries of the company are really engaged in breakthrough medical projects.
It is worth noting that for all 70 years of searching for a medicine for a cold, official medicine not only did not reach anything, but almost made sure that it was impossible to create such a tool. Too bizarre bouquet of rhinoviruses and coronaviruses gives rise to this disease – in addition, they also constantly mutate. There are no particular difficulties to withstand a specific strain, but when there are innumerable number of them, some fundamentally new methods of treatment are needed.
It should be noted that the Amazon initiative is not the first, even earlier, the remedy for Chan Zuckerberg Biohub took a cold from a cold. It is also a closed organization of the medical type, directly financed by the head of Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg. And there is also a team of scientists from Stanford, which, according to official information, was closest to solving the problem, offering last year the ways of total blocking of all rhinoviruses, and not their individual strains. So, who knows, maybe the medicine for a cold is really around the corner?
