Covid19 Hope and Caution: Tools to end the pandemic
As we witness the recent surge numbers of infections, hospitalization and deaths dropping, there is a renewed sense of hope that Covid19 can be controlled and we can resume the social interactions we have dearly missed this past year. Yet we are cautious due to the surges in places with new covid variants that are more contagious and perhaps harmful. How do we balance this hope and caution? The experts tell us we have the tools to end the pandemic if we take actions now. The virus cannot survive and spread if it cannot infect people. Prevention of infection is the key and can be accomplished through immunizing the population with the very effective vaccines.
