Israeli Researchers on Cusp of Creating Coronavirus Vaccine
After 4 years of research funded by Israelâs Ministry of Science & Technology, MIGALâs researchers have developed an effective vaccine against avian coronavirus Infectious Bronchitis Virus (IBV), to be adapted soon and create a human vaccine against COVID-19
Israelâs Minister of Science and Technology, Mr. Ofir Akunis, commented: âCongratulations to MIGAL on this exciting breakthrough. I am confident that there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat.â Minister Akunis has instructed the Director General of the Ministry of Science and Technology to fast-track all approval processes with the goal of bringing the human vaccine to market as quickly as possible....

A vaccine could still save many lives, especially if the virus becomes endemic or perennially circulating â like flu â and there are further, possibly seasonal, outbreaks. But until then, our best hope is to contain the disease as far as possible. To repeat the sage advice: wash your hands.

The above is a conclusion, the entire article is interesting on how the conclusion was reached.đđ

Two railroads connected it to Denver and other population centers, many badly hit. âThe flu is after usâ the Gunnison News-Champion warned on 10 October. âIt is circulating in almost every village and community around us.â
What happened next is instructive amid a new global health emergency a century later as the world struggles react to the emergence of a new coronavirus. Gunnison declared a âquarantine against all the worldâ. It erected barricades, sequestered visitors, arrested violators, closed schools and churches and banned parties and street gatherings, a de facto lockdown that lasted four months.

Well, Mike, I assume epidemic starts Trump will head down to Margo De Lago, and seal it up like Gunnison was. I suppose he'll be tweeting all the time, something that the people Gunnison Colorado couldn't do.
Funny but Japan's NHK news does not include this. Instead, they say in China, one in five people over 80 who got the virus have died. And fatalities are also higher for those people with heart disease (13 percent) and diabetics (9 percent).
"Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). A novel coronavirus (nCoV) is a NEW STRAIN that has not been previously identified in humans." (WHO)

Four are very ill and one woman, a patient in her late 50s with other medical problems, died overnight in Washington state. "Additional cases in the United States are likely," Mr Trump said, "but healthy individuals should be able to fully recover."...

Mike, since it's always a good idea to do the opposite or believe the opposite of what Mr. Trump says this is the time to panic đâ

Ebola was going to end all things as we know it. MUCH higher fatality rate than Covid-19. Remember? How about SARS? (Also a coronavirus, also from China, interestingly traced back to animal markets) Ever heard of Asian flu? Hong Kong flu? They killed lots of people. Swine flu? Legionnaire's disease? Plenty of choices to run around in circles and yell about.
I would at this point suggest panic is a more serious threat to the west than the disease. And the shame of it is how the looney tunes are manufacturing panic, then trying to blame Trump for it. I guess they needed something, what with nothing else working for them. As Neil pointed out, Trump is blamed both for doing too much, and doing too little. But then Democrats aren't known for their brightness of thought.
Jim Linkin wrote, âJust be cautious if you see a bunch of Iranian looking people at your next Trump rally.â Good advice, Jim. Canât be too careful around all those Democratic plants and protesters.

Mike, this Fire's is ten times more deadlier than flu, and it seems to be even as just as contagious if not more so. Just be cautious if you see a bunch of Iranian looking people at your next Trump rally.

Bro US, sure it could be out of place, but I doubt it. There is such a thing as a moral markup. Too large a markup (which pharmaceuticals are renowned for) is evil, for it is taking advantage of the sick, and displeasing to the Lord. It is love of money, no less.
Doctors are overrated, IMHO.
Mark 5:25-29 KJV (25)Â And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, (26)Â And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, (27)Â When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. (28)Â For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. (29)Â And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague.

If the Israelis do create a vaccine, no doubt it will be used widely by the Muslimsâincluding those in Iran, who have already experienced an outbreak of coronavirusâwho have vowed to eradicate the Jews.
