Please explain Doc. Is this new covid-19 outbreak really going to finish / stop spreading if the vaccine has been found? If so, usually when, Doc? Thank you! 🙏
Thank you for the question.
The current COVID-19 pandemic is indeed very unsettling. Not only the easy way of transmission, some people who are at risk, if contracting this disease, can experience symptoms that are very severe, even deadly. In addition, if you are infected with COVID-19, you are also required to isolate yourself, so that social interaction is hampered, and indirectly, productivity can also decline.
No one can be sure how long COVID-19 is still a problem. Indeed, the discovery of vaccines can indeed increase the body's resistance to viruses, thus helping to reduce the discovery of new cases that need treatment. It's just that, until now the vaccine for the virus that causes COVID-19 (ie the SARS-CoV-2 virus) has still not been found. Whenever this vaccine will be there, can not be ascertained. But often, new vaccines can be developed after a long period of research, which can take months, even years. Because, not only is its effectiveness in triggering endurance, the safety of this vaccine when used in humans also must be thoroughly evaluated before being used en masse.
It is also important to understand that vaccines are not 100% effective at protecting against viruses. In some cases, viral infections can still occur, only the potential for fatality is smaller in people who have been vaccinated. In addition, not everyone is right and can get the vaccine, for example people with allergies to the vaccine component or people with a history of severe immunity disorders. Therefore, it is our shared responsibility to prevent the spread of this disease so that human survival can be better in the future. The trick is to increase endurance through a lifestyle and healthy eating patterns. Not only that, you also need to improve personal hygiene, maintain social distance, consult a doctor if you are sick so that soon treated.
Hope this helps ...
