    Well. They’re very different viruses, so.

    Yeah, I think the point he was trying to make is vaccines currently under development aren't going to help us now. They may help with a second wave though, if that occurs.

    A agree that we need to temper expectations.

    That said, vaccines for flu and cold viruses, of which covid 19 is in the same family, have been widely used for years, whereas the virus that causes aids is a different animal altogether. As well, the situation with the coronavirus is much different. The numbers worldwide are astronomical and health agencies will likely be willing to forgo some of the usual strict and stringent testing requirements in order to help reduce the numbers of deaths that will occur. I could be wrong. Seems likely though.
