    I wonder if its because Microsoft donated super computing power to research about the virus? I wonder who else donated some? I wonder if we're in an age now where viruses are going to be eradicated?

    Quarantined a d controlled but not eradicated. It's been going on for awhile. Our methods and tools are just getting better at what they do.

    That's true but it's always good to see at least that they're working on things and have gotten good results so far.

    Yes, good news, of course.

    But then, the anti-vaxers will descend like shrieking banshees and try to dissuade as many people as possible from taking any such thing -- which will, of course, lengthen the time to "herd immunity" and condemn bunches of more people to death.

    But c'est la vie, I suppose. :(

    Well, knowledge is power, and super computers and AI are certainly adding to our knowledge...

    Yeah but if they refuse vaccines and others accept, then the ones who keel over are the anti-vaxxers themselves!

    Did anyone read the article? The vaccine triggers an immune response but they don't know if it will be effective against covid. They also state that a useable vaccine is still a long way off. Add to that this is China we are talking about they tend to emblish their success.
