    Only have sex with people in your households. I feel sorry for anyone still living with their parents right now.

    "Masturbation will not spread Covid19, especially if you wash your hands." Sage advice there.

    So the scriptwriters for this story have thrown in a twist with Brotish American Tobacco (BAT) having a potential vaccine available in June.

    No-one is going to have a vaccine "available" in June. We're still 6+ months of human testing away, even with as much red tape slashed as possible.

    They haven't started human testing it yet by the sounds of it. That's the bit that takes 12-18 months isn't it?

    It would be spectacularly poor taste. Puns fully intended obvs

    Also just cause they can manufacture 1 - 3m a week in June doesn’t mean that it will actually be approved by then.

    That's happening now, let's not be naive

    The last time you rolled out this argument it didn’t play out well for yourself.

    I'm aware everyone is an immunologist now but the swine flu vaccine only took around a month or two from human trials to approval

    Presumably because it was a flu vaccine. They change them every year.

    A vaccine will take ages to test, you don't want to cut too many corners there for fear of unprecedented side effects.

    My more immediate (relatively speaking ofc) hope is on the antibody test and a treatment that will reduce the risk of severe complications.

    I've seen a couple of episodes of Scrubs so you can take my word for it.

    Imagine all the money saved from cut pensions.
  • Deleted user 1 April 2020 22:45:02
    CNN report it like this: If clinical trials go ahead, the company said it hopes to produce up to 3 million doses of the vaccine per week beginning in June. Those doses will go to waste if the trials aren't successful, but it's "a price worth paying" to save time, O'Reilly said.

    So they will manufacture it before it’s approved.
