I wonder if the alt universe would have a coronavirus vaccine faster than us or if coronavirus would even be a thing

Either scenario could be possible.

They were more advanced, right, so probably they would have a vaccine by now.

It all depends on several variables that could have occurred, if the coronavirus pandemic even happened at all 'over there'.

They are more advanced in certain medical areas (nanotechnology for one); however, in some medical areas, not so much, for they had not found a vaccine for smallpox as of 2010.

Fringe Episode 303: "The Plateau" - Fringe303-0291 - Fringe Files

Speaking for the United States, Fringe offers a subtle clue that perhaps Donald Trump never became President of the United States 'over there', by having Chelsea Clinton running for president in 2036.

Fringe Episode 512: "Liberty" - Fringe512Liberty0004328 - Fringe Files
Fringe Episode 512: "Liberty" - Fringe512Liberty0004327 - Fringe Files
Notice the rebuilt Pentagon and NEWS TICKER: 'Detroit voted safest city in America'.

She would have more likely been running to follow in her mom's footsteps than her dad's (Bill Clinton).

"Liberty" aired three years before the 2016 presidential election, but that does not detract from the fact the Fringe alludes to Hillary Clinton possibly having been elected President of the United States at some point between 2016 and 2032 in the alternate universe, prompting daughter Chelsea to run for president in 2036 'over there'.

A Hillary Clinton administration could have possibly reacted faster to the impending coronavirus outbreak, saving possibly hundreds of thousands of lives in the process.

There may have been no need for lockdowns 'over there', like what was needed 'over here'.

A different president may have worked with the World Health Organization (WHO) in order to find a coronavirus vaccine.

Americans 'over there' may have been more inclined to obey social distancing and mask wearing mandates, because a different president may have stated it was imperative to do so in this health crisis.

With a different White House Coronavirus Task Force leader, researchers could have been given more resources to find a coronavirus vaccine.

Or China could have squashed it before it hit the United States.

Check out alternate Barack Obama's 'do' in this Fringe AU New York News (Post) front page close-up. Alternate Michelle Obama looks blindsided.

Question about crossing universes

Please forgive me if this question has already been raised and answered, I’m new to this board and couldn’t find the answer.
In season 1 and most of 2, anyone that came to this universe had to be put in a chamber so their bodies could acclimate, example, Walternet when he came to get Peter. Yet Walter went over at the end of season 2 and adjusted and Faux-livia came to this universe seamlessly (as well as Peter when he was a child). Was there some kind of justification given by the writers as to why they could jump universes with no health issues?

From what I remember, Walter had done it multiple times in the past and they brought up quite a bit that like Olivia, at logos could go to the alt universe because of the cortexiphan trials she was in

That too. I believe it flares her cortexiphan abilities more
