When Will We Be Safe Again?

When will life finally be back to normal? I'm expecting about this time next year.

I am no medical expert but things like this don't just disappear. Some diseases like Smallpox can be eradicated once a vaccine is developed but we all know that viruses mutate and the little blighters struggle to survive just like us. If scientists can't find cures/guaranteed treatment that works for flu or colds then why would this virulent strain be any different.

They cannot say you can't get it twice, just as getting flu doesn't confer lifelong immunity.

I have been thinking along these lines for a while as I am not confident we will ever be free of it and this viewpoint has just been confirmed by a scientist on tv this morning.

It'll be a long time before life is back to normal, especially for those of us who relied on the hospitality and entertainment industries for some or all of our income. I think our attitude should be to live life to the fullest with what we have available to us though. Don't focus on things returning to 'normal' because virus or not, the world will be a different place after this. It has brought about so much more than a health crisis and it is possible to use it as a catalyst in making positive changes to our lifestyle.

How long is a piece of string? Nobody knows! Remember this is a new virus for even the specialists, lots of info thats important for them to learn will likely take a couple of years, even then there's no guarantee of any vaccine, even if they do develope one we could be waiting years... We live in a new world now, I dont think it'll ever quite return to 'normal'.
