And what if Covid was soon to be a distant memory? This is what has been suggesting this Thursday March 4 Head of the Société de pathologie infectieuse de langue française and Rennes university hospital infectious disease professor Pierre Tattevin on Franceinfo, explaining the “vaccination campaign works well” and it is said to enable us to hope for “better days rather soon”.
A statement echoing government spokesman Gabriel Attal’s made the day before, on Wednesday March 3, saying the government was hoping “things to get back to normal from mid-April perhaps”. A goal to follow sparking a bit of hope: “we’ve got three good vaccines, four soon, and we’ve protected the most fragile people from the first weeks”, the professor argues. He adds that by late March, the effects of the vaccination campaign will be more clearly noticeable, including a lower daily death toll.
Thanks to vaccine, the virus is expected to soon come to the end of its evolution, reinforcing then the idea the crisis might end soon: “when it will meet its end, it will be ranked as part of the common seasonal viruses giving us mild colds or infections”, virologist Bruno Lina tells our peers from Franceinfo. He goes on: “we’re in a phase the virus stopped evolving and now we’re entering a pandemic phase end to more to a slower virus spread phase”.
A crisis likely to soon become a distant nightmare.
