Making antivenom (which is the antidote for a snake bite)is a painstaking, resource-intensive, time-consuming process. It's not much different now than when it was first created in the 1890s by a protege of Louis Pasteur named Albert Calmette, who was living in present-day Vietnam when a flood forced monocled cobras into a village near Saigon, where they bit at least 40 people and killed four. Inspired by the then-new science of vaccinations, by 1896 Calmette had discovered the process of injecting horses with venom until they produced antibodies, taking the serum out of their blood and injecting it into snake-bitten humans as antivenom.
