Mayo Clinic: ‘Social Distancing May Need to Continue Through 2022′
A story published on Friday on the Mayo Clinic News Network's website says the coronavirus could continue to impact our lives for some time. The article says, "Social distancing may need to continue through 2022. Researchers predict that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, will return every winter and that prolonged or intermittent social distancing strategies could limit the strain on health care systems."
I don't believe we'll be staying at home for the next two years, but it is fairly obvious that we won't be returning to "normal" anytime soon. Masks and social distancing will become a regular part of our everyday routine as researchers continue to work on a vaccine. Dr. Gregory Poland discussed that lifestyle change and how this pandemic could permanently change healthcare in the video below.
