We have to come to terms with the fact that the world is going to be a very different place after the COVID-19 pandemic. Are we dealing with a virus that goes away once the antibodies defeat it? Are we looking at a chronic infection like HIV or hepatitis? And if it’s chronic, can carriers infect others even while not showing symptoms?
So far, scientists are optimistic and believe that once a carrier is healed, they don’t have to worry about the virus anymore, but they are the first to admit that they might be wrong. We simply don’t know enough.
