Even though the ongoing pandemic has had an enormous impact on both our personal life and the economic situation of the whole world, it seems that the entire globe is starting to get right back on track. The good news is that numerous from all around the Earth is slowly, but steadily approaching, what two months ago seemed impossible, the “corona free” tagline. However, the question is, could this dream come true for the Washington D.C. area before the distribution of a vaccine?
Dr. Joshua Sharfstein declared that this hypothesis is the best description of most of the countries in Europe. But let’s not despair, since his professional opinion states that we are starting to see much lower daily infections with COVID-19 even in Washington D.C. nowadays. Dr. Sharfstein is the vice dean for public health practice, working for the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.
According to his latest analysis, those countries that managed to go above 30 infections per one million inhabitants for each day, have also managed to open the educational institutions successfully. Therefore, the primary objective of any country should be diminishing the number of daily infections step by step, since this target will allow us to get right back on track someday.
At the moment, we are not even near full recovery of the Washington D.C. area, but the numbers are starting to look better as the day passes. Dr. Sharfstein believes that it is very likely for us to go down to no case per day, even before the vaccine is distributed. At the moment, the situation looks better than what it did a couple of months ago. Washington, D.C., has a long way ahead before getting out of the war as a victorious region, but it is clear that we are starting to regain our forces.
