Hi Brendan

Indeed, it is extremely fascinating. As far as I know, there is not a vaccine yet, I think everyone was just focused to get the test ready so that one can focus on identifying cases. They will have to study the DNA or RNA of the virus and see how they can make a vaccine to counteract the virus. It is, as you say, really difficult because a virus, like the flu-virus for instance, just keeps on mutating. This makes it even more difficult for a vaccine to be made.
