    The Elephant in the room

    To my knowledge, human's have not developed immunity to ANY corona viruses yet (Common cold, SARs, Flu, etc), so what will make this one different?

    What are the Cukker's crackpot theories.

    It won't be different.

    If immunity exists, it will be in the short term, I'm afraid that we will have this one on and off for good.

      Flu isn’t caused by coronaviruses (AFAIK)

      Vaccine is now ££££££ deal, even if one would need to take tulip every 3 months

        But Coronavirus has already produced multiple mutations, so it will be as useless as the flu jab, in the long term?

          Lots of mutations but very small difference according to people who sequence genes, which is good news

            That's why you NEED an elephant in the room. Get it to stand in front of the door then all the selfish ******* won't keep flouting the advice and the number of cases will plummet

              So it would just make the vac less effective?

                Your knowledge is incorrect. If you catch a cold caused by a specific coronavirus, you are immune to that virus until/unless it mutates significantly, so usually several years at least. However, there are over 200 common cold viruses. Most adults catch 2-3 common colds a year.

                Correct. They're caused by HxNy viruses (aka 'flu viruses), where x goes from 1-10 and y goes from 1-7 for type A. There's also type B and C, but A is the biggy as far as humans are concerned..

                Not really. Minor variations, but nothing of any significance.

                  Small differences so far, apparently - good for vaccines, bad for hope that mutation will make it easier to handle

                    Ah, thanks for that clarification.
