    Be sure to say out loud how glad you are that you got sick after your China vacation and not during.

    Japan, China close schools nationwide; South Korea confirms 505 new cases, surpassing China for first time. Imagine that in Ontario schools closing, the teachers labour issues with Ford already causing enough problems. How many parents would have to stop going to work to take care of the kids? How many need both incomes just to keep the mortgages going?

    Ontario could close all the schools and lay off all the teachers and re-direct the money saved to home care rebates and health care.

    Oddly, this is something Dalton McGuinty predicted would happen. However he claimed every other government service would be forfeit to fund the costs of healthcare.

    It is ready for trial today, human trials in April.
    Just seen a report on the experimental vaccine from Moderna. Batches being sent out for human trials ..... results expected in July or August.

    IF the thing works and is safe, it will take 6-12 months or more to manufacture billions of doses. As I said previously, there is currently no vaccine and the likes of you and I won't be seeing one anytime soon.

    A quarantine would have to be in place for upwards of a year and that would destroy our economy and probably our society. Its not gonna happen and it wouldn't help anyway.

    And this is how North Korea deals with the virus, he was executed via the traditional North Korean punishment of extirpating criminals by shooting them with an anti-aircraft slug. Problem solved.

    ‘BDS THIS’: Israel Makes ‘Exciting Breakthrough’ In Race For Coronavirus Vaccine

    Feb 28 2020
    Israel

    Israeli scientists are reportedly only a few weeks away from having developed the first vaccine to combat the coronavirus, which originated in China, and could have the vaccine available 90 days after that.

    “Congratulations to MIGAL [The Galilee Research Institute] on this exciting breakthrough,” Science and Technology Minister Ofir Akunis said, according to The Jerusalem Post. “I am confident there will be further rapid progress, enabling us to provide a needed response to the grave global COVID-19 threat,” Akunis said, referring to the disease caused by the novel coronavirus.

    A team of scientists at MIGAL had been working for years on a vaccine against an infectious bronchitis virus (IBV).

    “Our basic concept was to develop the technology and not specifically a vaccine for this kind or that kind of virus,” said Dr. Chen Katz, MIGAL’s biotechnology group leader. “The scientific framework for the vaccine is based on a new protein expression vector, which forms and secretes a chimeric soluble protein that delivers the viral antigen into mucosal tissues by self-activated endocytosis, causing the body to form antibodies against the virus.”

    “Let’s call it pure luck,” Katz said. “We decided to choose coronavirus as a model for our system just as a proof of concept for our technology.”

    The Jerusalem Post reported:

    But after scientists sequenced the DNA of the novel coronavirus causing the current worldwide outbreak, the MIGAL researchers examined it and found that the poultry coronavirus has high genetic similarity to the human one, and that it uses the same infection mechanism, which increases the likelihood of achieving an effective human vaccine in a very short period of time.

    “All we need to do is adjust the system to the new sequence,” Katz said. “We are in the middle of this process, and hopefully in a few weeks we will have the vaccine in our hands. Yes, in a few weeks, if it all works, we would have a vaccine to prevent coronavirus.”

    The CEO of MIGAL said that the company is moving as fast as it can to make the vaccine available to the public in the form of a highly accessible oral vaccination.

    Online, pro-Israel voices quickly mocked those who support the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions (BDS) movement, which seeks to destroy the state of Israel.

    Thats quite a sentence. I understand most of the words but have trouble visualizing exactly what it is describing.

    Awesome news! However it will still take months to make enough to fulfill the massive demand to cover the whole world.

    Will be SUPER funny to see the Palestinians and Muslims preferring to let their people die rather than accept an Israeli vaccine.

    I also suspect we will see just how dedicated the anti-vaxxers are to their cause when they are faced with an actual choice of vaccine or death.
