This was predictable because every pandemic through history follows a similar pattern. There is the initial "blast" characterized by high rates of infection and rapid onset symptoms. Then as time moves on, it starts to plateau before gradually diminishing before getting its 2nd wind and coming back like it had begun, sometimes with higher rates than the initial boom. This happened with the Spanish flu a century ago. It took the world nearly 3 years to cope with that. I have no expectations that life will "return to normal" within a year of Covid-19's introduction, but that certainly doesnt mean it will last forever. Keep the hope up everyone! We will get through this!
