COVID-19: Two Possible Timelines for End of Pandemic . by Alice B. Clagett

  • FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE
  • SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

Dear Ones,

Here are two possible timelines for the end of the COVID-19 pandemic …

FIRST TIMELINE: DEVELOPMENT OF COVID-19 VACCINE

I read in a BBC article that a vaccine for COVID-19 is expected to become available in mid-2021. That would be about a year and a half after the beginning of the pandemic ….

Link: “Coronavirus Vaccine: When Will We Have One? by James Gallagher, at BBC News, 8 July 2020 … https://www.bbc.com/news/health-51665497 ..

If that were to prove true, and if everyone were to be vaccinated next year, then people will not be running into active virus as much in the people they meet.

For those who have had the virus, and have built up their immunity, that would be good, as their immune systems would not need to fight off reinfection through exposure to other people’s active viruses while working or shopping.

It seems to me that getting flu this winter (in 2020) might make it harder for the body to keep up a strong COVID immune response, simply because it might be ‘fighting on two fronts’ at once. But if there is a vaccine available mid-2021, then that year’s winter flu season would likely offer less of a challenge to COVID-susceptible people.

SECOND TIMELINE: SIMILAR TO SPANISH FLU EPIDEMIC OF 1918

The deadly Spanish flu epidemic of 1918 lasted 2 years and 2 months; I think that might be a timeline to plan for should there be no viable vaccine. That would put surcease at April or May 2022; quite some while away, but, I feel, well worth keeping in mind.

It might not seem so, but there will be an end to the pandemic one day. That is the history of pandemics down through time.

God bless you all and keep you safe. May you have plenty to eat, and a good roof over your head, and may each day present you with a new joy in His great Creation.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars.

    Yes, getting COVID-19 and then getting another respiratory disease like the flu or bronchitis would be very bad for your lungs. Also, regarding COVID-19 vaccines, check out our resources at http://www.fancycomma.com/covid-19 to learn more about how different vaccines work, and what it’s like to participate in a clinical trial. Here’s hoping this thing goes away soon, one way or another.
