I just listened to Fox News and they had an in depth discussion about a potential vaccine. I wanted to ask the professionals as to why the federal government doesn't offer a Trillion dollar bonus to the first company that develops a vaccine approved by the FDA.

Maybe because the potential for profits is great enough as is, without that kind of incentive?

A vaccine is at least 12 months out....offering a "reward" per se is not likely to occur because it has so many negative connotations on many fronts.
