The flu keeps mutating every season, so those vaccines only work for a short time and then we have to make new ones. This virus seems like it's not mutating all that much so it's possible a vaccine will work for a longer period of time. So.... long term maybe it gets snuffed out, but a vaccine is at best a year away (assuming one can be made and produced widely)? Our consumption based economy won't hold for that long and who knows, it's possible we realize rampant consumption and constant growth is not a great economic model.
