As if you've not read or heard enough about Corona virus already.

Some of the more interesting links I've come across in the last couple of days:

A nature article suggesting covert (asymptomatic) infections are probably quite common and seeding new outbreaks: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-00822-x?

The work of Imperial College, London, that helped changed the UK government's strategy from voluntary social distancing to closing non-essential industry and business:

Potential therapeutics for CV infection:

A short paper on some vaccine development work in the Jenner Institute, Oxford: https://www.paediatrics.ox.ac.uk/news/covid-19-vaccine-development 

The search for a vaccine and global competition:
https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/19/us/politics/coronavirus-vaccine-competition.html? 

Not in the least exhaustive, but if that's what you want then google is your friend. ;-)
