    Pretty sure vaccines will take a while to develop and to distribute to all around the world.

    Projections were saying it should peak at around May/June timeframe... then drop off...probably because weather gets warmer. So stay warm, and clean in the meantime.

    ....and drink alcohol apparently as alcohol kills it, though I haven't seen details on how much, etc.

    Yes, so in theory, you can fight Corona with Corona

    Even though heís Vietnamese we still refer to him as the Chinese guy.

    Anyway...a third confirmed case reported in Canada. Has there been a vaccine developed for this yet? I remember during the SARS epidemic they scrambled for weeks trying to come up with a vaccine.
    Yes there has in HK, but you probably won't be able to read about it in the Western press, and only 1 other opinion piece cites it in Google. Anyway, it will take time to be tested before it can be deployed.

    I'd post the link but some moron on this thread who is more than safe within his bubble would probably start making idiotic, ill-informed, wannabe smart-alec comments about "fact-checking".

    One of my students is currently trapped in beijing, having spent the holiday break with family in Wuhan. She's quarantined now, but hopes to make it back to class in the next week.

    We've also got a case at the local hospital - in all likelihood an international student. They're currently "investigating" his or her contacts.
