China races to develop vaccine before coronavirus mutates | DW News

With China’s deadly Wuhan coronavirus continuing to spread, scientists and pharmaceutical companies are racing to find a way to medically contain the virus. Lessons learned from the SARS epidemic nearly two decades ago may help them in developing a vaccine. It’s a race against time before the virus has a chance to mutate. Global concerns over the virus are mounting, as more cases are identified abroad. Germany has now confirmed its first case of the virus. More than a dozen other countries are also reporting infections. In China the death toll has jumped to 100, with more than 45-hundred confirmed cases. Domestic travel bans are already in place, and now the government has asked people to delay foreign travel. For millions, life has come to a complete standstill.
