So when polio or measles was about, nah, there won't be a vaccine...
They've had a 40 year start with AIDS - still nothing.
Cold sores - nothing.
Flu - nothing.

Must I go on?

Haway man, aids ain't contagious.

Cold sores? Do we need to find a cure for that?
Flu? We do have vaccines for that.

Also, they haven't pumped millions into finding Cures or vaccines in a space of 6 months for those ailments.

The whole world hasn't come together to find a vaccine like they have for this one, its unprecedented.

The whole world collaborate to find cures for all illnesses.
Since the very beginning they have only ever managed to eradicate smallpox and that's it.

I don't know facts or figures and unless you can supply them from a reliable source I would say that more money was put into a cure for AIDS.

Either way there is no cure for coronavirus now and won't ever be.
It will be here mutating forever unless they can eradicate it now and that's not going to happen.

You can live in the world of fantasy and wait for the day they impregnate you with unnecessary poison.
Me, well I will live in the real world and learn to live side by side with yet another virus we can't cure.

And what is more my friend, you don't know there will be!
In the history of man we have only ever once eradicated one disease - smallpox!
What are the chances for coronavirus which is in the same family as the flu and despite what you say, there is no cure.

There is a difference, the whole world is sinking more money, and time, and resources and development into this than they have ever done ever in the history of any pandemic.

That counts for something, but clearly they're all wasting their time. What do these clever scientists know with all these letters after their names, and do this every day?
