China and Italy may be somewhat totalitarian in their approach for quarantining their populations, but perhaps that is what it will take to shorten the worst of this rapidly approaching pandemic. If we can find a vaccine soon, great, but don’t count it in, that typically takes years. And I have no expectation of a “cure” that will help recovery. Let’s face it, if after all these years we don’t have medicine for the common cold or the annual flu in its many variation, I don't hold much hope for us getting something of a “cure” for this novel coronavirus.
