Perhaps more sobering would be to think of that number less as an entity and more in terms of the precio...

The Great Vaccine Race: Inside the Unprecedented Scramble to Immunize the World Against COVID-19

Such was the case with SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus behind COVID-19, and the attack was mostly silent and insidious at first. Many people infected with SARS-CoV-2 remained oblivious as they served as the v...
