exactly. people try to compare this with the aids vaccine and say oh it will take foreverWould some virus riddled freight be a possible source of infection in NZ?
That would throw a cat amongst the pigeons in regards to borders here as stopping and checking or restricting all cargo will not be practical.
The Russian vaccine is interesting, even if it is dodgy I am very confident that we will find a vaccine due to the common global interest in eliminating COVID.
people forget the amount of prejudice against aids and hiv which was huge. substantial amount of influential people with money thought it was just a homosexual disease and with the homophobia at the time indirectly accepted the virus was a reason to eliminate homosexual men. Ronald Reagan literally cast a blind eye against HIV for years. whilst he was president
covid is a completely different kettle of fish, anyone can be affected by it just by interaction whereas HIV could only be transmitted in certain methods, HIV just wasn't really taken seriously by the big world players until near the end of the 80s and the early 90s and by then so many had perished from the disease. this one is different. 160 vaccines being worked on and counting.
