There are promising vaccines being developed for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). So what does this mean for No Time to Die?

Naturally, the blog has questions.

What do you think are the odds that these vaccines mean No Time to Die will meet its scheduled April 2021 release date?

Less than 50-50.

What? Why?

Because it’s going to take a lot of time and effort to get vaccines out to a large number of people.

Is there something else?

As of the time this post is being written, there are still a lot of COVID-19 deniers. On social media, I saw somebody refer to “pandemic” in quotes, an indication of skepticism that COVID-19 was real. Even before COVID-19 arose, there was a robust anti-vaccination movement.

What do you think?

An acquaintance spent a week in the hospital (she said she had COVID-19) and was on oxygen for at least part of that time. I take that seriously.

How does this shake out for No Time to Die?

As stated above, it’s going to take time for vaccines to have an effect. In the long run, it may turn out great. Will vaccines have an impact in time to help No Time to Die? That’s not so certain.

Put another way, it’s possible No Time to Die might get delayed again. But, to be honest, it’s too early to say.
