Question for virologists on here.

We know these diseases are capable of mutating to preserve their existence.

What if a vaccine is found but Mr Covid-19 mutates into something more deadly to preserve its miserable existence ? Is there a hidden danger in a vaccine ?

Not an expert, but sometimes viruses mutate into something benign to survive.

Of course not, Al. Taiwan effectively and safely manages huge daily freight traffic from China, they're dependent on it. We should ask their advice.
I thought Mr Covid could travel on hard surfaces. Open up every container and sanitise it ?

I think you are looking for a unicorn in Utopia here.

This is Sparta !
Yes, but that would completely contradict pretty much everything else they're doing.
Consider all the recurring major faux pas throughout - do you really believe they are THAT incompetent ? They have to be seen to be mitigating disease spread.

PS 10pm curfew = house/street parties.
