last night in a state of twilight i read something in my gnews covid19 feed about this

head scientist at migal said it was blind luck that they have been researching a similar cv pathway

i think it was this

Israeli scientists: 'In a few weeks, we will have coronavirus vaccine'

Once the vaccine is developed, it will take at least 90 days to complete the regulatory process and potentially more to enter the marketplace.


edit: the speed at which some of the biotech companies are building products to combat this is pretty amazing suspicious

You’re Likely to Get the Coronavirus
Most cases are not life-threatening, which is also what makes the virus a historic challenge to contain.

U.S. Health Workers Responding to Coronavirus Lacked Training and Protective Gear

Anyone who thought "electing Trump won't kill anyone" are very close to being wrong.  The administration overrode the CDC's explicit instructions not to bring Americans home from Japan...and we now have the virus mysteriously appearing in someone without known contact linkage within 10 miles of the AFBase where the cruise line folks are in quarantine.

Worldwide flu typically kills 290,000 to 600,000 annually. COVID-19 is just getting warmed up but some back-of-the-envelope math I did last night (assuming some wildly unpredictable numbers but taking the most conservative of each) says it is likely to double that.
 
Swine lasted over a year and infected up to 20% of the population, but the mortality rate was much lower....Only about 1/2 million, or less than. 10%

Good job Pencey!
Mike Pence was criticized for his handling of Indiana’s HIV outbreak. He will lead the U.S. coronavirus response.

Yeah, it's nothing to sneeze at. Get it? Flu? Sneeze? See what I did there?

Apparently the Spanish Flu (1918) killed somewhere upwards of 50 million, with some estimates as high as 100 million. Point of origin is still disputed, but 'Spanish' is a misnomer regardless. What is NOT disputed is the flu's spread was aided by secrecy imposed due the war. Woodrow Wilson has been singled out for his iron-fisted control of the media and its effect on the spread of the virus. What goes around...

  Yes, I think most of the nations engaged in WWI censored reports about victims of the 1918 flu in their countries (to keep up "morale" or some such).  Spain was not at war and reported their cases, so I guess people just attached their name to it.

Single digit death tolls don't do it for us anymore. Unless it's in a church or school, you need at least a dozen (to give a little margin for ambiguity about the shooter) to bump the news cycle. 

 
Sadly true.

Agree 100%.  There are 5 dead in a mass shooting yesterday, and it's in the "other news" section of the NYTimes already.

So where will the first case that makes it into the country undetected come from ?

From someone legally entering the country or someone who comes in illegally across the southern border avoiding the safeguards we have established ?

 exactly why we need a simplify the immigration process...so migrants dont have any incentive to do it illegally.
