MYTH: A Covid-19 vaccine is already available

Answer: 

Human coronaviruses are actually common throughout the world. The National Institute for Communicable Diseases says that there are many different coronaviruses identified - specifically in animals - but only a small number of these can transfer to humans. 

However, Covid-19 is a never-before-seen strain of the Coronavirus which began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. While some existing medications may help relieve symptoms - scientists around the world are working tirelessly to learn more about the disease and develop the first commercially available Covid-19 vaccine.
