My bet is that Covid will be like the flu, as in it will be a recurring instance. Hopefully its incidence will be lower.
The other question is, will it be the same/milder/worse in subsequent cases?

I fear you're right, although my hope is that it's like the Spanish Flu and will eventually be eradicated, especially with a good vaccine.

No we don't, yet.
Yes, we do. One thing I won't debate here is whether or not masks work, it's misinformation that we should all take very seriously and frankly spreading it can cost lives. Please, do not engage in it on this site.

If we follow the guidelines set by the CDC and our medical experts, it has proven to slow or stop the spread.

Fair enough. As you know, I am pro-masks, big time.
I was being anal on the "know", as in there are no conclusive studies. Lots of evidence in favor of masks, but still no conclusive studies on their effectiveness, especially on a large scale.

So much that we still don’t know. We have to continue taking this seriously.
