The CEO of Moderna, Stephane Bancel, appeared on Wednesday’s episode of ‘Squawk Box’ to talk about the company’s recent successes and the forthcoming release of an RSV mRNA vaccine.
During the discussion, CNBC host Rebecca Quick revealed that Bancel told her during a WEF meeting in 2020 that Moderna was already working on a COVID-19 vaccine, even though the disease did not yet exist at the time. Quick was so amazed at how Moderna was so early in developing the vaccine.
“The last time we were here in Davos in the winter was January 2020. And I saw you at that point, and we were at breakfast right over here. I remember, and you came up to me in this small room, and you were talking about how you had actually you were working on a vaccine for COVID. And at that point, COVID-19 didn’t even really exist in our minds,” Quick told Bancel.
Bancel responded, “I think there was no name at that time.”
“It’s amazing how much you’ve accomplished in such a short amount of time,” Quick said.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported that Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel admitted that it is possible that the gene sequence patented by the vaccine company three years before the pandemic could be in Covid-19’s spike protein.
Moderna CEO told Maria Bartiromo that it’s likely that a lab in China was working on virus enhancement or gene modification. And the hypothesis of an escape from the lab by accident is also feasible.
“My scientists are looking into those data to see accurate, or they are not. As I’ve said before, the hypothesis of an escape from a lab by accident is possible. Humans makes mistakes, so it is possible that one lab in China was working on viruses enhancement or gene modification,” Moderna CEO Stephane Bancel told Maria.
“And then there’s an accident where somebody was infected in the lab and then infected their families and friends. It is possible on the claim you just mentioned, the scientists analyzing to know if it’s real or not,” he continued.
