Following the news that Pfizer’s vaccine for COVID-19 is showing signs of 95% efficacy, there’s been a lot of excitement about the end of the pandemic being in sight. Sir John Bell, regius professor of medicine at the University of Oxford, has even suggested that life could return to normal by spring. Sorry, but Sir John Bell, the regius professor of medicine needs to get his school money back and retire immediately.
Let’s ask the specialists, the John Hopkins University:
If I get a coronavirus vaccination, do I still have to wear a mask? Physical distance?
And their answer:
Yes! It may take time for everyone who wants a COVID-19 vaccination to get one. Also, while the vaccine may prevent you from getting sick, it is unknown at this time if you can still carry and transmit the virus to others. That is why, until more is understood about how well the vaccine works, continuing with precautions such as mask-wearing and physical distancing will be important (source).
So, when does it go back to normal?
If we use logic, we need to determine how long it takes to vaccinate billions of people. That does not take a week, month or even a year. That takes many years. The same can be said with countries having tens of millions of populations. The time before its population will be vaccinated will also take several years. And when we talk about the third world countries, that will take even longer.
If we read the various government plans all over the globe, we can expect that the mass vaccination plans will last for several years.
Now guess how long it takes to get rid of the masks? It’ll take many years, at least five years.
And if you ask the crucial question, when are the corona-closures stopped? Not this year, and definitely not the next year.
There are conspirities, which tells that even after the pandemic is neutralized and gone, the medical restrictions are kept in place by the various means. I hope those are only conspirities, and not actual facts.
