    Yes 3 Doctors from Sunnybrooke isolated the "virus", but tests are needed and it can be a year before they have a mass production vaccine.

    A year, the wait time has been cut down already. Virologists were speculating 18 months before they knew what it was.

    Maybe it can just go away if the whole world does the right thing, didn't Sars just disappear? I don't remember getting vaccinated for sars...

    A possible treatment against covid-19 from DARPA

    The Pentagon's most secretive military research department is developing a therapeutic "shield" that could provide a new way to boost American's immunity to Covid-19, reported DefenseOne.

    https://www.defenseone.com/technolog...summer/163659/

    DARPA's Pandemic Prevention Platform Could Develop Therapeutic "Shield" To Fight Covid-19 By this Summer.


    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) Pandemic Prevention Platform (PPP) is not in search of a vaccine against the fast-spreading virus that is now considered a pandemic, but rather is developing an advanced therapy that seeks to boost the immune system of people until an actual vaccine is developed. The result could prevent hospitals from being overwhelmed by sick people.




    DARPA scientists working on PPP have been sequencing the B cells of a Covid-19 patient who has recovered. B cells, also known as B lymphocytes, are a type of white blood cell that produces antibodies that aid the immune system in its fight to fend off an invading microorganism.


    "We are able to take a patient that has recovered from this pathogen [Covid-19], for example, and we are able to sequence many of their B cells. So those cells that make those antibodies that help protect you against those pathogens? We are now able to sequence all of those because of next-generation sequencing approaches," Dr. Amy Jenkins, manager of PPP, told DefenseOne.

    If scientists can successfully sequence the B cells, they could create a new therapy with a "manufacturing timeline" in a little over three months, Jenkins said. It would buy some time, considering a proven vaccine is 12-18 months away.


    PS. Let's hope it work out. Needed to hear some positive news. I beginning to get PTSD from reporting on Covid-19.

    Ahahahahaaaa so true, on the other side we are beginning to get PTSD not seeing your posts as often and are afraid you have already locked yourself in the bunker without internet access. Itís official we are conditioned! Keep it coming bro, need to keep lightening the mood with your insights. But where da fuck is big sleezy. He might have some issue or two with this immune boosting technique.

    I'm very skeptical about DARPA, Trump cut their funding to build his wall.

    The WHO said that the planet got lucky that SARS COVID-1 struck Toronto. Our city was, at the time, among the best urban centers on health care. It was contained before it could spread Stateside.

    The Americans have an awful track record when it comes to viral outbreaks. The Blue Soldier started in rural Kansas (the Spanish were not responsible), it went on to kill 50 million people. The American Health Care apparatus still can't act on an outbreak fast enough.

    When come to National Emergency or Health emergency new money or new funding will suddenly become available.
