Of course, the spread of the disease will be finite (i.e. not instantaneous), so that would have to be factored into the 'need' equation, I would think.

As you say, it's an improvement. If we can deploy that capability on a larger scale (building more plants) that will help. Also, this new technique may have room for improvement. We may get even more out of it in a few years than we can now.

Which will be of little consolation to the (probably) millions who will die before the bug can be isolated, a vaccine developed, and distribution can occur. I'm no expert, but I expect the isolating is probably the easiest of the steps (and it's likely not that easy).
