According to the data of the World health organization (WHO), the first case of the coronavirus was reported in China’s WHO headquarters on 31st Dec’19. This started as an epidemic limited to the city of China named Wuhan, turned into a pandemic in just a few months resulting in the whole world practicing “social distancing” to prevent the further spreading of this disease.
Four months ago, no one knew that a virus named “Corona” would take over the whole world, causing more than 3 million people to get affected by it.
The lockdown situation is not only affecting the mental health of people, but the economies are facing huge downfalls. Although the coronavirus lockdown begins to ease in a few of the countries due to the decrease in the number of cases reported but still, the situation is not completely under control. This COVID’19 pandemic has been imprinted on the individual’s psyche. And they are just thinking, “What more would happen next?”
When Will This Situation Come To An End?
The number of affecties, as well as deaths, has increased in many countries, even though the safety measure has been strictly implemented. Many countries, especially European countries, are taking uncertain steps for bringing ease in their lockdown by adopting various approaches to bring everything back to normal.
Approximately one-third of the global population is under extreme lockdowns, and they are close to a saturation point where they will run out of patience. There are still many uncertainties regarding the current situation, and many questions must be roaming inside your mind. Among them, the most significant one is whether this situation will come to an end or not?
When will the world come out of this situation?
A professor of cellular biology stated that it is impossible to predict an exact date or month for this situation to cease down. There might be a chance that it would take a year or two for worldwide countries to recover from the effects of this pandemic.
A Belgian biologist named Guido Vanham said that there is a possibility that this will never end, until and unless this virus is completely eliminated. And the only way that might help in coming out from this situation is inventing an effective vaccine that would protect every human being from this coronavirus.
Chance is that this will never come to an end, and this virus will continue to affect people all over the world. There is a rumor that the change in whether it will bring down this virus and will reappear as the winter approaches. But again, it is quite difficult to know in which direction this disease will go.
Is lockdown going to help in reducing its spread?
Presently, the only immediate solution countries could come up with was a lockdown and practicing social distancing. Many national authorities have instigated strict lockdown to deal with this situation effectively and fight the further spread of this disease. The preventive measure, i.e., social distancing, is implemented to save people from coronavirus. The lesser number of people that leave the house, the lower will be the rate of corona affected people.
This strategy has been effective up till now in limiting the spread of this disease, but it will only depend on how long people will continue to follow it. No one has an idea for how long this situation will continue or when the people will be able to go back to their normal routines. Lockdown will not be maintained for a longer time as the economies have been greatly impacted. What nations need is an exit strategy to get out of this situation, which has still not been formulated by any country.
Will Warm Weather Be Beneficial to Eliminate COVID’19 or not?
Rumors are spreading that outbreaks of this virus will vane down as season will change. But pandemics are not usually dependent on the seasons. Since the higher outbreak of COVID’19 has been in the colder regions, we can hope that this will die down summer approaches.
Predictions for the coming months
The upcoming months will be difficult for nations. There is still uncertainty about whether it completely ends or not. Predicting the future is tough, but countries are formulating strategies to find a way to bring everything back to normal.
In the upcoming months, might be few industries will be allowed to open, strictly following the preventive measures. Individuals will continue to be encouraged to exercise social distancing until heard immunity is established. Right now, the death toll has crossed 200,000, but many states are preparing themselves for reopening.
We might get fortunate that the change in whether it will fade this virus, but there are still many doubts concerning this fact. Presently, what we can do is deal with this situation with patience and positivity, and hope for a COVID’19 free future.
