Easy answer to that: forever.

I see the commentariat has already started. (links might be blocked):

"Let's keep wearing our masks": https://www.bloombergquint.com/gadfly/should-i-keep-wearing-a-mask-after-covid

"We may never go back to normal": https://www.bloomberg.com/opinion/articles/2021-03-24/when-will-covid-end-we-must-start-planning-for-a-permanent-pandemic

That second article really gets me. The last paragraph: "The good news is that we keep getting better at responding. In each lockdown, for example, we damage the economy less than in the previous one."

This is the world we have made for ourselves.

Unfortunately this is so.

Given the media response to any "quarantine breach" or spreading of cases they will lock down more  and more savagely to prevent any perception of not meeting the standards already set for dealing with the "crisis".

Expect more lockdowns not less.

The locals are going crazy and stocking up on fine cuisine - Ice Brake and Chicko Roles.
