How long coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) will disrupt everyday life?
The question comes in our mind that long coronavirus pandemic will disrupt everyday life? But according to Public health experts, they are increasingly worried about the behavior of Americans, as they are currently underestimating how long the coronavirus pandemic will disrupt everyday life in the country, also warning that the Trump administration’s timelines are a source of a false sense of comfort to U.S citizens.
Expert predicts a rise in COVID-19 cases
Coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) cases are expected to reach its peak in mid-April in many parts of the country, but quickly re-opening the businesses or loosening shelter-in-place rules would inevitably lead to a new rise of infections, they said.
The SARS-CoV-2 virus causes COVID-19
Meanwhile, other parts of the United States are only now implementing restrictions and have not yet ordered the closure of non-essential businesses, which is creating a patchwork response, which will help to achieve the goal of driving down transmission of the SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19.
President Trump, after signaling that he may try to restore some sense of normalcy in the country by Easter, has acknowledged that difficult times are ahead and that restrictions should remain in place until the end of April.
According to experts even if some of the restrictions are relaxed, its unlikely life as normal will resume in early May.
What experts say about the timeline of Coronavirus Pandemic (COVID-19)?
Thomas Frieden, who was a former director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, said this week that it’s understandable that people want to know the exact timeline when businesses can re-open and some facets of life can resume. But he also said the focus of public discourse now needs to be on the public health response not the question of when these restrictions can be lifted.
“Decisions to reopen society should not be about a date, but about the data,” Frieden, now president and CEO of the global public health initiative Resolve to Save Lives, said during a briefing Wednesday for journalists. “How well and how quickly we do these things will determine how soon and how safely we can reopen.”
“The administration has consistently shown a desire to underplay the severity of whatever is coming. And they’re constantly adjusting that as it becomes harder to deny the reality will be worse than what they’ve conditioned people for,” said Jeremy Konyndyk, a senior policy fellow at the Center for Global Development.
Jeremy Konyndyk said he and other experts discussed the matter with believing an intensive period of social distancing and a national semi-voluntary lockdown will last for months.
