There has been much controversy and not enough specifics about those 40 dead microbiologists. This has been a topic in the recent past, but nothing ever came from it.

the only way out I think is to develop a potent yet safe vaccine against the virus and make it a part of the Immunisation schdule
The general public aren't too fond of compulsory vaccination programs as it is....that's assuming an effective vaccine could even be found, and that's just talking about more mundane illnesses.
And presumably, if one was discovered, the virus would suspiciously (or naturally) simply mutate into something bigger, badder and much stronger.
Of course that assumes that you can actually convince the population that it's necessary.
I'm not so sure about that strategy though; if you don't have a virus to work with, how can you even [try to develop a vaccine?
Whilst I understand the dangers of keeping those nastier viruses in check, it's also important to at least keep trying to find an answer; if we're only going to stock those to which we have an antiviral or vaccine available, we're going to leave ourselves open to some bigger problems, surely?
