Here's Four Possible Timelines for Life Returning to Normal

One question we all ask is, 'When will life go back to normal?' The one answer that we tend to get is vague and that when about 60% to 80% of the population is resistant to the coronavirus. This is either from a vaccine or because they got it, recovered, and then developed a temporary immunity. And that's IF getting it and recovering even leads to immunity.

The Atlantic interviewed several epidemiologists who gave four possible timelines and here's what they said:

  1. One to two months. The experts think this is highly unlikely . . . but if, somehow, coronavirus turns out to be NOT as serious as it seems to be, we could start getting back to normal in a few months.
  2. Three to four months. This scenario could happen if we learn that lots of people have gotten the virus, worked through it with minor symptoms, and developed immunity. Then we can isolate clusters or at-risk people as others get back to normal.
  3. Four to 12 months. This scenario is entirely dependent on whether the warm weather in the summer will slow down coronavirus like it slows down the flu.
  4. 12 to 18 months . . . or longer. It would be, quote, "world record, lightning speed" if a vaccine is ready before next spring and once it's ready, it needs to be produced and administered to 350 million people.
