The future of coronavirus after 2021 is something that many people think about. Many of us thought that the virus would disappear by now. However, it is still here and it looks like it’s not going anywhere. Like many other viruses before, this one is not going to just vanish into thin air. The only way is for people to have herd immunity. Unfortunately, this is unlikely to happen now, because the virus mutates constantly. This means that by the time you have immunity towards it, it will come back different and stronger. So what is the future of covid-19 then?
It is very hard to predict exactly when or how this pandemic will end. Scientists around the world still can’t figure it out. The main question now is not if the virus will just magically disappear. It is if enough people will have good immunity against it.
So let’s see what the people think the future of covid after 2021 is. We did research on the topic in one of the most famous forums in the world – Quora. One person, Yann Francois said: “I am no expert but I am not stupid neither. I am an engineer.
This virus will probably stay and the ones who claim that vaccine will bring herd immunity are foolish. Flu vaccine exists for 75 years and every year, flu is there and kills. Why? Because immunity from the flu vaccine does not last long. For the covid, immunity seems to be very short, like for every cold virus (rhinovirus, adenovirus, coronavirus). Oh, did I forgot to mention that Covid is a cold virus? Do you know that Moderna lab is trying to make a vaccine based on adenovirus from chimpanzees? Do you know that the latest studies on people who recover from the strongest illness version of the covid disease no more have antibodies after 4 months ?
So, either this virus disappears like SARS, without a known reason, either it becomes endemic with a possible vaccine lasting 3 months only and working at 30% (like the flu vaccine anyway). Have in mind that a cold vaccine never worked.
At best, we have to live with it and old people should better hide from it as they do from the flu. People should now take care of their health instead of counting on pills and medications. Youth will resume their lives and will raise a long finger to baby-boomer leaders who are filling their diapers with fear of being targeted by this virus.
What has just started is the political hysteria and the money merry-go-round for big-pharma which sees money pouring as gold rain. And both are not ready to end. “
Another person, Chris Gabel said: “No one had said there is no immunity. Our immune system reacts to a foreign protein like in a virus and we recover. What WHO said is as of yet no proof of immunity from antibodies. Many viruses have cellular immunity. “
It is true that many people can develop immunity to a virus. However, it won’t stop mutating by going from person to person. Like many viruses before it, it won’t just disappear. The coronavirus will stay, our bodies will just learn to adapt to it and not let it kill us.
In many countries, the restrictions that were taken in the past for covid-19 are now lifted. In Bulgaria, people stopped wearing masks inside many shops, malls, etc. People are now fed up with the whole situation and this isn’t helping.
Many people have different opinions on whether or not the vaccine actually works. A large group of people even believe that it is harmful to our bodies. The reason is that after getting a vaccine there have been death cases. This was due to severe allergy response of the body or some other unexplained reason.
One person, Sam Bridgeland commented in Quora: “There was a study that indicated that the new (at the time) combined MMR vaccine may be linked to an increased propensity for certain behaviors usually found in people on the Autistic spectrum; the media at the time leaped on this with headlines about the vaccine Causing Autism. There was then a massive backlash from the medical establishment, and the Dr who produced the report lost his funding, so could do no further investigation into the reasons for the results he seemed to have got. He subsequently lost his job and reputation as multiple other studies showed no link of any kind.
The vaccine in that study was of the type where they take a live virus, and damage it in quite a primitive way using tiny amounts of harmful chemicals and then use the damaged virus (which is now unable to rapidly multiply to cause an infection but still has the markers that allow the body’s defense system to recognize it) as a vaccine. Very small amounts of the chemicals used to damage the virus can sometimes still be found in the vaccine, but these are at levels which should have no effect on the person receiving it.”
In the end for now it’s our own choice whether or not to get the covid-19 vaccine. In the future maybe we will be forced to do so. Either way, we can just hope that it really helps to deal with the virus.
