VR,

I suspect that you are only looking at 1 side of the solution, a vaccine to prevent people catching the virus.

Another way forward is to establish effective treatments to cure those with the virus. It may be easier to progress more quickly with finding a cure as those already in ICU and facing grim odds may be willing to try experimental drugs to help find that life saving treatment. Some countries seem to have a much higher success rate than others, with time the various strategies can be examined and compared. Hopefully there will be time over the summer to prepare for a second phase in the autumn.

quite the opposite - I think the only way out of this is natural transmission and natural immunity. A vaccine will provide at best 80% effective protection. Thatís the typical figure for an effective vaccine, this one is new, so May be lower. After thalidomide, research companies wonít release without extensive testing. I honestly donít see a vaccine this side of September 21.

agree on treatment though. Be interested to see what the government guidelines are when they are released ref consideration of ďvulnerableĒ. Iíve flown with some of our more elderly chaps recently and they are not content to fly if this becomes more widespread.
Edit:
Government may recommend lockdown to everyone including over 60s now. Know itís in the daily rant, but no smoke without fire.
