In the 70 yrs since coronavirus was first discovered there has never ever been a successful vaccine formulated. No vaccine research has got past Phase
II testing. They have been trying to find a vaccine for Malaria which kills up to 500,000 per year, for the last 13yrs which is not an unusual time
frame. To expect and hope researchers can create the very 1st coronavirus vaccine for a NEW coronavirus within 12months or less is absolutely
ridiculous, and to base lifiting lockdowns around the globe based on this fantasy is just as ridiculous.
It was pure luck that researchers in China released the genetic sequence of the novel coronavirus once they realised that those in charge were not
going to do so, they sacrificed at lot to do that including themselves in some cases. But even those sacrifices are nowhere near enough to enable
others to create a miracle vaccine in the touted time frames.
Professor Ian Fraser of the University of Queensland who has been involved in the creation of the human papiloma vaccine states "
the challenge is that coronaviruses have historically been hard to make safe vaccines for, partly because the virus infects the upper respiratory
tract, which our immune system isn't great at protecting
One of the problems with corona vaccines in the past has been that when the immune response does cross over to where the virus-infected cells are it
actually increases the pathology rather than reducing it
The chances of underfunded not for profit labs creating a vaccine for something that hasn't had a successful vaccine created for in the last 70 yrs
are probably next to zero, as are the chances of the world's populations remaining under "house arrest" for the next few years.
The WHO are also stating that there may never be a vaccine for novel coronavirus.
So the only real alternative is the touted herd immunity, but that would involve many many more deaths and an appropriate immune response which so
far with covid-19 most patients immune systems are simply not responding as they should and as stated above, can in fact worsen the situation.
It seems this virus, unless it sufficiently weakens, is going to be around a very very long time with very few ways of managing its ramapage
