The prevailing educated guess is that the pandemic will go endemic! Endemic means that there are always people who are infected, who pass the infection to somebody else and then recover. Only 2 ways a pandemic can end either go on to be endemic or virus is eradicated.
Over one year ago WHO declared a pandemic. Since that time a few effective vaccines were created and jabbed into the arms of over a billion folks. The vaccines prevent severe illness from the SARS-CoV-2 virus but do not keep one from contracting and spreading the virus. These vaccines also are not as effective against all variants presently known. The more the virus mutates, the more chances it has to outsmart our vaccines.
