How the world will work with COVID

It is in the news that the Asian countries, having gotten COVID under control the first time, are now facing of second wave from people bringing it in from outside. Some day we'll get it under control here, but how will we deal with infusions from outside? Taking temperatures at the border doesn't prevent it coming in. Someday there will probably be a vaccine, and someday it will be practical to test people's blood for antibodies to see if they've already had and gotten over the disease, but how will we identify the people who've had the vaccine or who have the antibodies? It seems to me that just as people buy fake drivers' licenses now, there will probably be a thriving market in fake health credentials.

It will never end. It's like a cold only much more severe. Soon we will develop immunity but it will stick around and mutate just like the cold.

@MartinTheFirst Totally agree.

Eventually between a vaccine and group immunity this will come to an end. I just hope the response to the next outbreak of a new virus will be more responsive.

@SageWanderer We will see. But it depends on the power of the virus.

It's not gonna end until the whole world develops a group immunity.

Looks like something to add to one's immunization/health documents or passport, to be presented before even boarding an international flight.

It will be different. Once it's gone people will be more aware from now on. 😌

Just stop spreading and sharing droplets.
Zonuss · 41-45, M
It will end but on its own time.
