We Will End the Pandemic When We Get a Pandemic Vaccine.

Pandemic Virus

Plan to live with this pandemic until we get a pandemic vaccine. The best we can hope for is 18 months. More realistically, the clinical trial will probably take 2 years or more.

This is the best article I have seen about what we must do to end the COVID-19 pandemic. Plan for at least two years. Anything sooner will require a moon landing effort.

The article lays out what must be done at a federal level and indirectly shows the terrible impact the lack of Presidental leadership is having on the spread of this virus.

Businesses that survive will have to ramp up their virtual operations, My drug store is delivering my medicines to my home. UPS delivers them to my doorstep and I sanitize the packages before I bring them in the house. Many restaurants are advertising “fine dining” take out. The line at the Post Office was dutifully standing 10 feet apart. I am buying as much as I can online.

How we do business is changing, My cousin has started a concierge business running errands and doing shopping for older folks. Normal is gone. We have to invent a new normal. Those businesses that cannot adapt will be gone. I know I’m not going to the barber for six months or more. When I go back I expect barber chairs to be 10 feet apart and barbers wearing masks.

  1. Much has as been earned in the 2+ years since I wrote this.

    The COViD-19 virus is passed among us through the air. That is why it is important to wear a mask. N-95 or NK95 masks are best. A mask that doesn’t cover both the nose and mouth is worthless.

    We now have vaccines, but half the country refuses to get vaccinated. COVID-19 continues to mutate and the current B.5 variant is much more infections than earlier versions. Millions of long haulers are suffering chronic debilitating health effects.

    COVID-19 is firmly established in our environment. It is not going to get better and we are going to have to deal with it. Face it, There is a new bad guy in town. We are not going back to “normal.’

    I am doing everything I can to avoid this dangerous disease. I will wear a mask in crowds and when shopping, I will social distance myself from people I don’t know. I don’t go to meetings held in poorly ventilated rooms.

    When you wear a mask, I appreciate your respect for my health. When you don’t I stay as far away from you as possible. You have to decide what risks you are willing to take. Sometimes you don’t have much choice.
