It's real. The number of new infections in the US hasn't changed much in the last few decades. That means the only way to reduce this is via a prophylactic vaccine. Sadly, every attempt to create one has failed for a host of reasons like it is able to rapidly mutate, raising neutralising antibodies against it is very hard, etc. But in time I do think one will be approved. A number of trials are ongoing and encouraging data have been presented
''Chlorine is a deadly poison gas employed on European battlefields in World War I. Sodium is a corrosive metal which burns upon contact with water. Together they make a placid and unpoisonous material, table salt. Why each of these substances has the properties it does is a subject called chemistry'' - Carl Sagan

Why is it that the loudest critics of ''Big Pharma'' are Big Placebo?
