Coronavirus is reaching a stage where the pandemic is getting big day by day. And we are not getting any remedy for the virus. There are major cultural events that are not taking place now and are forgotten with time. The workplaces, bars, and restaurants are closing so that there is no gathering. The outstanding politicians around the world are getting into quarantine. Two simple questions are uprising above the rest. First- How long will this last? Second- How will it end.
There are four ways, as doctors suggest. One, it diminishes out with the weather. Two, everybody gets this infection, so it’s got no new places to go, so it ends. But that will be a pretty dreadful ending. Three is a vaccine, which is about a year away. The fourth way is the most likely: We’re going to have a few drugs, within a few weeks to a few months. This will prevent people from getting infected.
Let’s break each one of these down.
The epidemiological data currently accessible, there’s a purpose to believe that “with warmer, more humid weather” the coronavirus will spread less efficiently. This will lead to a drop in cases, said Jeffrey Klausner. An adjunct professor of epidemiology at the University of California Los Angeles. He was previously working for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“With a reduction in cases, anxiety and panic will go down,” he adds. “Severe illness will decrease, and we can go back to business as usual”.
Unhappily, that’s just one instance.
With Everbody Getting Infected
The pandemic could increase consistently throughout the summer. And may absolute by a vaccine or treatment. Till everyone who can get the virus does get it and there’s no one left to infect. Which is what Monto calls “the worst-case scenario.”
“I cannot get my head around 40 to 70 percent of the population being infected within the next few months, with a 2 percent fatality rate,” says Monto. Composing a picture of a world with many infected and dead people.
In that situation, of course, nearly every perspective of life—business, education, cultural activity, agriculture, mental health—would be hit by likely irreparable disaster. Without public meetings, it might be hard to even conduct funerals.
In another situation, things continue to increase and get more serious until someone uncovers a vaccine. But that is at least one year away.
Anthony Fauci says that a potential vaccine will enter a Phase One clinical trial in April. And—if it proves to be effective—could find its way to the public within 12 to 18 months. Other potential vaccines are in the works in the U.S. and elsewhere. But none are likely to hit the goal any sooner.
With Life Saving Drugs
On the happy side, both Haseltine and Klausner said there’s a purpose to believe strategies may be available to the American citizens within just a few months. Haseltine said the likelihood is that at least one therapy option will be available in the public health system. It would be present within weeks or months, and might even prevent the coronavirus.
Though Monto disagrees with Haseltine and Klausner’s confident timelines for available treatments. He still believes Americans are not heading for the worst-case scenario.
Americans, he said, will likely see further disruption. —and then case decline—similar to how the SARS epidemic spread in 2002 and 2003.
