I think that, like most things, including the great flu pandemic of 1918, and then the polio epidemic of the 50’s, and the AIDS …whatever that was in the 80’s … , Covid will gradually fade away. When’s the last time an AIDS death made the news? Trump was right about this, he just underestimated the amount of time it would take. As did I.
In a way it doesn’t matter. The public that refuses continue living only half-free will ignore the restrictions to the extent they can. They’re past caring. Of course, the police can force closures of restaurants and keep cinemas padlocked.
So I anticipate more and more underground recreation, like during prohibition.
