You've anticipated my next question.
If memory serves me right, polio took 22 years of research at a time when we didn't have the technology we have today, and five trials that led to more or less pleasant effects.
Since SARS in 2003, scientists have been warning us that something was going to blow up in our faces, as you said. Nevertheless, there have been cutbacks in science around the world. Is Canada one of the countries that cut research drastically?
