As noted by Corbett, if the international medical establishment get their way, nothing will get back to "normal" until world health officials have definitively determined there is an effective COVID vaccine in place.
Even then, however, things may not go back to the normal we're accustomed to or expect. Since the beginning of the pandemic, world leaders have warned that social distancing, mask wearing, travel restrictions and other measures will become part of our "new normal.
Be that as it may, the refrain we keep hearing from the likes of Bill Gates, Dr. Anthony Fauci and a long list of other world leaders is that any sense of normalcy will remain elusive until or unless the entire global population gets vaccinated against SARS-CoV-2.
Brave New World of Vaccines
"The public is being prepared for an unprecedented global vaccination campaign," Corbett says. However, one major problem with this is that the current COVID-19 vaccines are still in the experimental stage. While they've been granted emergency use authorization, they still haven't completed Stage 3 clinical trials. Data for some end points won't even be collected until 24 months after injection.
