Thats basically what it will be, like the Pandemic of the 50's which we call Influenza A now.

We will have to live with it.  Sadly

The good news though, is with a Vacince we can reduce alot of the measures now, and just track smaller outbreaks, like they do with the Plage and Ebola.  Eventually, medication will get more effective and should be able to handle anti vaxxors and mutated strains

I wouldn't worry about it.

I think when everything is laid out in the sun many years from now, this disaster will come down to a few things. First, a lack of leadership. That's pretty obvious. Another, the American fairy tale of rugged individualism - "I do what I want". And finally our work ethic. Work or die. Two weeks of vacation a year, and by god I'm going to take it, pandemic or not. 

We're ritualistic morons - church, spring break, fourth of July, Disneyland - we just can't handle letting it go for a couple months because it's what we've always done, and no one can stop us.

I had some hope in the early days that this would shine a light on what and who was important for American society, but that hope is gone as people seem to be clawing their way to their graves to bring it all back.

Well, it's not A Legal Matter yet, just Another Tricky Day at the lab.  I Can't Explain when we've Had Enough but Doctor Jimmy goes home at 5:15.  But I do know that Water is no Substitute for Whisky, Man.

I'm annoyed at the slight "fear-mongering" tone of the article. Yes, the core of what is said is true, we might never have a cure. Odds are though, we won't have a persistent pandemic, but worse case, we'll get a yearly Covid-shot like we do with the flu.

That's probably NOT the case.

It's highly unlikely that any of the vaccines will provide immediate, lifetime immunity to 90+ percent of people. And it will take months to roll out.

We're going to be wearing masks and social distancing for another year at least.

Is the Obvious tag under quarantine?  This was obvious as soon as they said it was a virus.  It is sad, but the sadness started months ago.  I'd accept the Follow-up tag as well...

Granted the Rona causes all kinds of physical disabilities, but does it at least allow patients to play a mean pinball?

We needed people to stay home for 3 or 4 weeks and take social distancing seriously. But that was a tall order, especially nowadays in the U.S. and the 30% who won't do it, not because they can't, but mostly because they don't want to. And of the 70% who wanted, many could have done it if the government had assisted them to.

I have heard from more than one medical professional that the lack of federal leadership made this crisis much worse.

Dolt45 failed this nation.

There are some things that are so obvious that I don't need them validated by a medical professional.

Trump is clearly and obviously to blame.
