SARS CoV2 aka COVID-19: GOOD News, is a Vaccine Coming?

Mice are not people but this sounds outrageously hopeful.

WSJ: They Developed Their Coronavirus Vaccine in Salk’s Shadow

Jonas Salk developed the polio vaccine at a University of Pittsburgh lab. The deadly disease that crippled infants disappeared almost overnight, and Salk became a hero...

... As the world faces another terrifying disease, Pitt medical scientists are again at work on a potentially revolutionary vaccine. Louis Falo and Andrea Gambotto, respectively a dermatologist and a surgeon, have developed a Covid-19 inoculation that rapidly produces large numbers of coronavirus antibodies when injected in [sic] mice. A peer-reviewed paper describing their work appeared in the journal EBioMedicine, which is published by The Lancet. They await approval from the Food and Drug Administration to conduct human trials on their vaccine candidate, which is delivered via a unique skin patch containing 400 tiny needles.

...It helps that the vaccine doesn’t require refrigeration. “That means that we can actually put these in boxes just like Band-Aids,” Dr. Falo says, “store them, ship them, distribute them globally, which is really important for underdeveloped countries who don’t have the means of keeping vaccines cold the entire time.”

...

DIGLLOYD: why isn’t human trial approval a 2 or 3 day process at most given this situation?
