I also wonder if such a virus would mutate to become much less lethal (or even benign) before we could isolate it, develop a vaccine, and produce the vaccine in sufficient quantities to make any difference. I'm guessing it would take a year to accomplish this (if not longer), and viruses mutate pretty quickly.

Even if it did mutate though, the rate of infection would already have been slowed down by the reduction in population and travel, so the mutated viruses (virusii?) wouldn't get a lot of traction. True?
