Looking at these photos, taken some time ago, I wonder when will the lockdown end. The curve of Covid 19 infection is slowly going down and this must make us wonder both on the actual timing and on the possibility of resuming a normal life.
When will the lockdown end? I must say that this question has rested in the back of my mind but reviewing this photo, taken only a month ago, I asked myself officially when will this forced lockdown end but above all what kind of quality of life we will meet once the quarantine is over.
As a good biologist with some notions of virology and epidemiology I am convinced that the process will not only be long but also tortuous.
When will the lockdown end?
There are a number of conditions that must be met before isolation can end: the number of infections / day must drop below a certain number (the curve of the infections must drop and then flatten) and it must be ensured that no the conditions for the spread of the infection that have been in the past will no longer occur.
In a nutshell the real question is not when we will go back to life but how we will do it.
Yes, because even when the contagion curve will finally be below the value required for the gradual reopening of businesses and activities and the number of people healed will exceed the contagions abundantly and we will be able to go back out we will not do it in the same way as some time ago,
For sure we will have to radically change the way we do. For at least a year, we will have to do without hugs and kisses when we meet (and it is likely that this habit will eventually remain engraved in our social behavior) and our social life will be very limited. Bars and restaurants will reopen and it is very likely that they will have to guarantee a certain distance between the customers and the containment of their number, the same will be for supermarkets and markets and also within companies or gyms.
What scenarios are expected?
We probably won’t be able to travel and most likely we’ll have to forget the super crowded beaches of last summer. For how long? Probably until the vaccine arrives.
On the other hand, I don’t agree with the use of the masks feared by the Lombard health councilor Gallera, a very Lombard boy who gives the Lombardy region’s bulletin every day, perhaps even too “Lombard”.
In the sense that Italy is one and if the north has been severely affected by this contagion this does not mean that the rest of Italy does not care about it otherwise we would not all be stuck inside the house.
Enough of these divisions that do not even correspond to the feelings of the people, we are making history all together. When we get out of this situation we can say that we did it all together. It seems important to me to always remember it.
