Why were we able to get through previous pandemic without a vaccine, but can't with Coronavirus?

We got through the Swine Flu pandemic without a vaccine. We even got through the horrible Spanish Flu without a vaccine. But somehow, we can't seem to get through this Coronavirus without one. Why is that?

  • Some people aren't taking proper precautions to help reduce / prevent spreading it. 

    We got through SARS (not a pandemic, more like an epidemic) with out a vaccine. It was eventually eradicated. But many countries are working on a vaccine. Russia claims to have one but no one knows how safe or effective it is.

    We can.  How many people do you know who died or were really sick?
