Will the U.S.ever be safe again from covid19?

Even if the covid19 cases decrease, will you feel safe in a big crowd or going to the supermarket 6 months from now, a year from now, two years from now, etc?

    Six months from now, too soon to say. A year from now, yes, two years from now, yes. And everyone will have learned something. The next time a non-influenza virus comes out of Asia, as almost all of them do, it will be taken far more seriously.

    A few years from now, covid19 will just be another version of "the flu".  No one stays home because they might catch the flu.  

    It will make it's rounds just like the flu does.

    BUT - the difference will be that once people have it, their bodies will build an immunity to it making the next time they get it less severe.  

    The next difference will be treatments and vaccines that are being developed right now will be more readily available in a few years once the disease is completely understood and a vaccine that works can be developed.

    Once enough people have it so build up immunity, it'll be the same as other communicable diseases.

    More people die in car accidents and from the regular flu than from Corona Virus. If your not too old and healthy you should be fine,.

    No, because nothing was done about the virus. People still have the virus, and now it's spread to different parts of the world.

    Knowing how to prevent problems is something that many people are not able to do, and as a result a lot of other people will suffer, and maybe die a well.

    The governments has made the pandemic into what it currently is. The governments didn't stop this pandemic. They just made it worse!

    Problems don't magically appear out of nowhere, and apparently nobody tried to prevent the pandemic from starting.

    This is not the last virus we will ever have. We could have a virus that kills 30% of the people it infects instead of 1.5%. When we get through this pandemic, every American family should start saving a pantry of two to three months' food. Food that you will actually eat some day, and put the expiration dates on top of the cans and cycle them into your eating. It is a savings account, since the price of food goes up about the same as interest in a bank account (and the appreciation is not taxable).

    Humans have an amazing ability to move forward and continue to ignore past disasters.  

     

    Will governments actually do something about flu viruses or will it be 'well, we had 1918 and then 2020, it likely won't happen for a lot longer than we'll be in power'.  I can't say I'm positive.

    I never did feel safe around strangers, just because don't know how clean they really are, but regarding the virus, it'll be gone in a while, then we can get on with life until the next big t*ts-up comes along.

    Sure, I think there will be a vaccine in a year or less and that'll be the end of it.

    Sure.  When virus season comes around it is a new strain with a different name.  See https://www.cdc.gov/flu/pandemic-resources/basics/...
