It is July 28th, 2020. With lockdowns easing all over the world, some say a second wave of coronavirus will come into force by the end of the year. Others that the pandemic will fade. Is this true? How long before we get rid of the coronavirus?
Masks, hand-washing, and social distancing are allowing countries to get control and open back up.
While a second wave may arrive this winter, with good government and public health and a fast tracked vaccine we are well on the way to getting this under control.
A second wave in both the Northern and Southern hemispheres is likely, and we are unsure if those that have had the virus cannot get reinfected.
Aids, the flu, herpes, chickenpox... there are a number of virus that we haven't eradicated and continue to impact society in different ways.
