What if?

What if there is no vaccine? A number of very serious illnesses have no vaccine no matter how hard researchers try. HIV, malaria and Dengue to name just a couple.

Will you quit traveling and only stay home if there is not vaccine developed for Covid 19? :stirpot:

Well, HIV Has effective treatment, and requires specific activities to be exposed. Malaria has specific treatment and even prophylactic treatment (one of the drugs used is Trump’s favorite). Since dengue is mosquito borne, using a repellent can dramatically lower the odds of getting it. Additionally, there is a vaccine foe dengue, but is only recommended for those that have had dengue before.

Until there is a vaccine or an effective treatment many, including us, will be very cautious about traveling, especially to areas where medical care is more basic.
