After the whole world has been under martial law and quarantined for 60 days.
Not like that would ever happen. but it's the only cure. :)

As long as SARS-CoV-2 can jump species, there will be no elimination of the disease, no matter whether there is martial law or quarantines .
It does mutate and it can and does jump species.
But infection rates can be reduced to the point it's no longer a pandemic.
Unfortunately, large portions of our society are uncooperative claiming political and even religious arguments.


With out the common flu shots being administered yearly, the world would be seeing repetitions of influenza pandemics.
On a search, I found there was no vaccine for the 'Spanish flu' of 1918 until 1942.

People still become infected with influenza, just no where near the levels and severity of a pandemic.

IMO, it will depend upon the timely availability of the vaccine shots, the acceptance of taking the shots and social interaction.

April seems too soon to me.
Fall of 2021 more reasonable.

This could have been posted in one of the other pandemic threads, but it's a bit more relevant to this discussion.
And that concerns the timely availability of the vaccine.

Apparently, it's not going to be readily available for a while.

Trump’s Operation Warp Speed promised a flood of covid vaccines. Instead, states are expecting a trickle.

The administration pledged several hundred million doses in 2020. Companies will actually ship about 10 percent of that.
