Australian scientists say 'first generation' vaccines unlikely to stop spread of COVID-19

This was my worry. 

This thing has mutated since we first heard about it. Everyone forgets that when it was in Italy we knew of two strains. One mild the other deadly. Then it made it to the US and we heard of 4 different strains in the Baltimore Ravens locker room. Just before that we saw a European nation cull its entire population of Mink because they had become infected with Covid and it jumped back to humans. 

Now we have a vaccine that is being called a great hope but it was designed to deal with the original strains (or so I believe...correct me if I'm wrong) so in essence we're right back to square one. 

We have a cure for a disease that has changed so do we really have a cure at all?
