Now it is a weird place that the world is in right now. Some places are getting back to normalcy with the restrictions being lifted and the lockdown opening up.
Some places are still in the clutches of the growing period of the coronavirus, and many cases are still found to be popping up every day. This goes without saying that this puts the world in a very awkward position.
While some people are enjoying the return to somewhat of normalcy after a very long period of restrictions, some people are still dreadful and fearful of the growing number of cases in and around them.
Disneyland had officially opened with their no mask required policy. Spain had also announced the citizens to not have a mandatory mask on.
Whereas in India and Britain, the Lockdown is still in place, and the cases are found every day too. In this period of a very slow transition from the pandemic situation, many countries are being left behind.
The dilemma of the vaccine is another case completely. Britain had announced compulsory vaccination for everyone in the preparation of the third wave. Joe Biden appealed to the masses to get their vaccination completed since the delta variant is going to affect young people at an alarming rate.
The drive and demand for the vaccine is skyrocketing, and that is pretty much understandable.
People are getting desperate to get the vaccine. At some places, even panic had started. However, the production of the vaccine is still going on by the pharmaceutical industry at a very high rate. Attempts are made to protect everyone and return to normalcy.
With some countries withdrawing their COVID-19 bans and new cases appearing elsewhere, the pandemic has reached a new, strange phase.
Obviously, nothing has been formally announced, but the entire planet is undergoing a peculiar change at the moment, and this is likely to continue for some time.
This time around is more hopeful, less frantic, but also drawn out in an uneven jumble compared to the abrupt introduction of the epidemic and the equally tense increase in vaccine availability.
In the Process of Returning to Normalcy, Different Regions, Communities, and even Sectors are doing so at Varying Rates.
It’s as if everyone on Earth is following a twisted version of the “yes, and” rule. Although the number of vaccinated Americans has increased, the risk of infection for those with compromised immune systems remains.
The vaccines we do have are really effective, but there is a severe shortage of them, so many countries are keen to get their hands on them.
One of the most noticeable changes here in the United States is the gradual elimination of COVID-19 restrictions. This week, most restrictions were relaxed in New York, and Disneyland reopened to the public without mask requirements.
Especially in locations with low case rates, residents might rejoice in the return to normalcy that has brought them back to work and social life.
However, summer spikes are possible in regions of the country where vaccination rates have remained low. As long as there are still significant gaps across regions, tensions will persist.
Meanwhile, in the world of medicine and science, things are changing in a different way.
The feverish pace of laboratory and hospital tests that accompanied vaccine development is beginning to abate. Even while we now know the answer to the most pressing issue (can we create a vaccine), there are still hundreds more that need to be asked and addressed.
There has been a dispersal and reorganisation of research efforts in recent years. Some have returned to work on vaccinations and boosters, some are exploring novel COVID-19 medications or trying to learn more about the virus’s origins and dynamics, and yet others are working on altogether separate topics.
These days, vaccination dissemination and tracking pose more of a problem than initial discovery. a
