What to Look Forward to Post Pandemic

People’s lives have changed since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic in late 2019. The pandemic has introduced new ways of doing things, and people are forced to practice social distancing, sanitizing and washing of hands frequently. Many countries across the globe have also been interrupted by learners told to stay at home. Other institutions have introduced learners to online training through cloud platforms like zoom. There is an increase in internet use, and people are discovering new ways of using internet platforms. This has also led to the introduction of other online gaming platforms and social media entities that provide entertainment to people during lockdowns.

With the advent of all these and people losing employment, a better tomorrow is what people are yearning for. There is the introduction of different types of coronavirus vaccines that have been developed by countries globally. Many see the light at the end of the tunnel because things are poised to return to normalcy soon. A question that lingers in many people, including Andrew Napolitano is, what will the post COVID-19 era look like?

People are anticipating doing many things that they have missed during the lockdown periods. Many people will probably go for more pampering sessions. This will include going for therapeutic sessions like visiting salons, barbershops, having dreadlocks done and general body massage and relaxations. Others are looking at going for outdoor activities like visiting the beaches and having some good family time.

People have had their meals served in the house, and it’s been a repeated habit that seems to be boring. Many will opt for eating out with the pandemic mitigated to have that favorable dish you have missed. Those who love clubbing will opt to have a night out to get fun that they have been missing all this while. Sporting events have been suspended due to the pandemic, and many people are yearning to go and watch that sporting activity they love. Many people will opt to take a vacation and travel to witness the changes in the world. If you missed a vacation due to the pandemic, you will likely book your next flight once the lockdowns are removed and the pandemic subsides.

Post pandemic, we shall probably see many healthcare workers taking a break off work because they have been overburden. We are likely to see some healthcare centers reduce operations to a minimum to stabilize the systems under stress due to the pandemic.

Andrew Napolitano is a veteran law scholar.. He is one of the youngest lifetime tenure judges to sit in the Supreme Court in New Jersey. Napolitano has also invested in agriculture and has a farm where he produces maple syrup. After the pandemic is over, he probably will visit a shooting range and partake in the sport. Post pandemic era will see many people taking into different sports fields to do what they love most.

The History Of Covid-19

The COVID-19 is a Chinese coronavirus that began in a wet market in Wuhan, China in December 2019. In February the World Health Organization official gave this virus its name because of the crown-like spikes on its surfaces. It closely resembles the SARS virus that surfaced in 2002, but more deadly. Doctors like Cory Harow are always reading about the virus. 

This is a virus that was common among animals and transmitted to humans. This virus at first was thought to only attack the upper respiratory system, but now we know it attacks the brain and other vital organs in the human body. The incubation period ranges from one to fourteen days. The most common symptoms emerge about 5 days after coming in contact with an infected person.

For the elderly, people with a weakened immune system, and people with underlying health issues this virus could be very serious and even deadly. It is worse for this group of people but as one knows, it has attack healthy people, sick people, those in nursing homes, the young, the old, and all nationalities.

Once humans are infected with COVID-19 they spread the virus to others by their droplets from a cough, sneeze, singing, talking, or handshake. The droplets enter one’s system thru the mouth, nose, or eyes. Lots of people are asymptomatic and are spreading the virus because one doesn’t know they have the virus. The virus can also be transmitted when an infected person touches a surface of some kind and someone comes along and touch that surface and then touch their mouth, nose, or eyes.

Some of the long term effects of this virus are blood clots, lingering heart problems, difficulty with cognitive functions, nerve pain, and extreme fatigue. These symptoms may linger for weeks and many times for months after being infected. There is so much that the experts have learned, are learning, and still a lot that is unknown about COVID-19.

The Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO)are working together closely to help control this pandemic that has spread all over the world, in every continent. They are working with healthcare workers and their partners globally to learn all they can so they can assist countries, set up rapid response teams, and give them guidance on how to combat this deadly virus.

To help curb this epidemic stay at home as much as you can, wear a mask in public, social distance, and avoid gatherings. Also, wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available use hand sanitizer that has at least 60% alcohol to clean your hands. Regularly disinfect objects and surfaces that you or others touch frequently such as countertops, doorknobs, light switches, handles, phones, etc. Avoid poorly ventilated indoor spaces. According to Cory Harow, there is no treatment for this deadly virus but the good news is that now we have one approved vaccine in the United States and another one that should be approved in a few days.

Novel Covid-19, What is Going on Now?

During all of the uncertainty going on in the world, a quick recap of recent news over the pandemic is deemed necessary. Cory Harow, a doctor, is entrusting medical professionals to come up with a cure. The info given in the news or on social media can sometimes be overwhelming. The best info and protocols to follow through this pandemic come from medical databases or other sources like the CDC where the public safety is the main interest. Most news reports or media outlets seem to run off of a fear tactic that try to instill fear in the public. Although it is a frightening time, one should not be given news with such a negative cognitive because it is causing the public to go into survival mode instead of just taking the right precautions and staying at home. This world wide pandemic has seemingly increased as the winter season begins to roll in. With it, there have came a few new laws and regulations that have recently gone into effect in an attempt to stop the COVID curve. A curfew has been in effect for regions that are in purple tier for about a week now. This curfew only allows essential workers to be out between 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. Another regulation targets travelers, it is now suggested that one quarantines for fourteen days at the trip destination before flying back. Even then one will need to quarantine another fourteen days to make sure there was no contamination during the trip or on the flight. The next step to insure that there are less cases is a modified lockdown. Intensive care unit centers have gotten incredibly saturated and only have a seventeen percent availability rate. If this number drops down to only fifteen percent available, the lockdown will go into full effect for three weeks. This means that any establishment not seen as essential will need to shut down with the exception of grocery stores. For the publics’ safety, any sort of social gathering is prohibited regardless of the amount of people. The lockdown is projected to start in the coming week seeing that patients have been falling ill after the Thanksgiving holiday. Amidst all this uncertainty, there has been talk of a second stimulus relief check which will aide a lot more people this time around, but the distribution date is still to be debated. With an upcoming lockdown, a stimulus check or even unemployment checks will be needed once again. An upside to this unfortunate virus is that a vaccine has finally submerged and has had positive results in combat with COVID-19. They will be targeting patients in the ICU centers with the new vaccine before it is actually made available for the public.It is, however, unsure when they will start administering this vaccine. The best the nation can do is to take precaution and stay safe. According to Cory Harow taking measures like staying home, wearing a mask, and washing hands seems like common sense but it will be the difference between self safety and that of others from ending in the ICU.
