While reading a press release on a study by Fikadu Tafesse and Marcel Curlin I found an encouraging perspective from the co-authors
Curlin, who also studies the HIV virus, said he's optimistic that widespread vaccinations combined with tried-and-true public health measures such as physical distancing and masking will break the momentum of the pandemic. Over time, he's confident in the ability of vaccines to effectively subdue the novel coronavirus.
"Influenza has a much larger potential for variability than the coronavirus," he said. "Hopefully, coronaviruses will be easier to manage."
I agree that things are tough now. Just know we will get out of this, it's only a matter of time.
