      There isn’t a vaccine currently. But there are researchers around the world working on this currently to try and find possible options. The latest reports is that UK teams could begin trials next month. But because of all the testing we need to do with vaccines, it will be 12-18 months at the earliest that we can get one.

      There are also researchers looking into different ways of treating the disease too
