The world is in a possible global slump. The COVID-19 Coronavirus (SARS-CoV2) Pandemic has got billions in lockdown. After almost six months of its transmission from China to the rest of the world, we wonder if the situation is any better today. It has shaped our entire world to become one of the biggest challenges since the Second World War, according to the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). While we are still short of a cure, the entire world is trying its best to slow down the spread and find other ways to eliminate this problem.
COVID-19 Pandemic – Are we closer to eliminating the virus?
In March/April, the European countries experienced some of the direst repercussions of COVID-19. Then, until now, the United States is going through over 10,000 cases every day. Asian and African countries are also deep into the constant rise of cases. However, by now most of the corporate world and the masses are tired of the lockdown and curfews. They want to carry on things the way they were. And so, governments in most countries are now opening up public places, markets, and reverting back to the way of life. An attempt to learn to live with the virus.
While most have accepted that COVID-19 is not going anywhere, most have come to focus on other matters. The George Floyd murder changed the pace of the US. Now, most of the US is out on the roads for the Black Lives Matter campaign. Asian countries, generally have a lower death rate as compared to the rest of the world. This is because of their already tough living conditions. Their immunity is rather better built. African countries have the most strict protocols for COVID-19 today so the situation there is most controlled right now.
So, in the big picture, the masses are learning to adapt to the Coronavirus and co-exist. Social distancing may just become a way of life.
