    You are asking specifically about a return to "pre-virus days"? I'd say we will know we have returned to those circumstances once there is an affordable and widely available COVID19 vaccine and millions and millions of low paid workers at high risk and with poor access to medical services are being vaccinated for free. Until then, I don't see how anyone could describe ~ or declare ~ the problem and its consequences as being "all over".

    We will never go back to pre-virus days because even if things get better, we will be past the days of the virus, so those days will always be post-virus days

    Like losing your virginity - you can't go back.

    To be fair to ogb, I interpret "pre-virus days" to mean not being couped up at home day after day, 100s of millions of working people being suddenly on the dole, millions of enterprises gone out of business, and people being worried/endangered by physical contact or close proximity.

    Agree, easy to be sensitive at the moment.

    Never. The neo-cons will make sure of that. This crisis will not go to waste.

    You will be free to go back to normal after you let the government give you their vaccine and their microchip.

    For those of us who make it life will never be the same in my opinion. A vaccine will need to be discovered and everyone will need to take it, not their choice if they want it.

    I had a cosultation with my Doctor the other day, and he was telling me this could be the new normal and Doctors would only see patients if it was established that a physical exam was required. When this all started he said Millions of people would be affected by this world wide.

    I know it will be years before I feel completely comfortable again providing I am one of the lucky ones who make it. No one wants to hear this but some of us will not make it through this unfortunately. I know a few of you are remembering me in your prayers some positively and some negatively. 😉

    One thing is for sure we are all going to go someday!

    One of the lucky ones? Most likely you will. A vast majority of people who get thus survive it just fine. Only the very few unlucky ones die.

    Few?......I guess that would depend on what you considered a few!

    Anyone of any age can die from this killer virus. The death toll is far from over I am thinking! There was a 25 year old athlete perfect condition passed. He may have had underlying circumstances no one knew about. All the same he did appear to be in good health before and very active in sports.
