The SARS-CoV-2 that causes theCOVID-19 disease is a one-in-a-century disaster that has led to profound structural change in every conceivable aspect of the worldwide community. The COVID-19 pandemic is the most topical subject in the academic community across all disciplines, but especially in the medical and biomedical research disciplines, where attempts to discover a safe, effective, timely, inexpensive, and accessible vaccine is at the top of everyone's wish list. There is a substantial amount of confusion, ambiguity, and misinformation in the academic community, and far more so in social mass media. Leading medical journals, such as the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), The Lancet, and the New England Journal of Medicine, have published informative case studies that seek to provide guidance on COVID-19 at the earliest possible opportunity.
