That is indeed encouraging, it makes me think developing a vaccine *might*
not be too difficult, although we'd have to be very lucky to have one in
less than a year. Let's just hope it's like the flu and goes dormant during
the summer months.

By the way, I wish scientists would decide what to call this damn thing,
whatever happened to COVID-19? And "SARS-CoV-2" is quite a mouthful.
