Timeline Shows 3 Paths To COVID-19 Treatment And Prevention (INFOGRAPHIC) In uncertain times, we are witnessing one of the greatest moments in the history of science. Scientists are breaking speed records in their race to develop treatments for the new coronavirus. Some are panning through old molecules hoping to find effective drugs.

The Microsoft MSFT, co-founder’s latest take is mostly an example of the former, as he laid out a timeline for a return to normalcy, which, he said, is dependent on a vaccine. “Humankind has never had a more urgent task than creating broad immunity for coronavirus,” he wrote in a blog post on Thursday. “Realistically, if we’re going to return to normal, we need to develop a safe, effective vaccine. We need to make billions of doses, we need to get them out to every part of the world, and we need all of this happen as quickly as possible.”

Short-term tests validate long-term estimates of climate change How sensitive is climate to atmospheric carbon dioxide levels? For a doubling of CO2 concentration from pre-industrial levels, some models predict an alarming long-term warming of more than 5 °C. But are these estimates believable? Writing in the Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems, Williams et al.1 have tested some of the revisions that have been made to one such model by assessing its accuracy for very short-term weather forecasts. The results are not reassuring — they support the estimates. There is little doubt, at least among those who understand the science, that climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing humans in the coming decades. SUNDERLANDECHO 18/03/20 How lessons learned from foot and mouth outbreak are helping tackle coronavirus Almost 20 years ago Britain was in the grip of a health crisis, but instead of confining thousands of people to homes and hospitals as Coronavirus has, it shut down the nation’s farms. And by the time the 2001 outbreak of Foot and Mouth Disease was brought under control more than six million sheep, cattle and pigs had been slaughtered to stop its spread. Then, as now, the government faced a backlash over what was deemed by some to be sluggish response to the unfolding emergency.
