The coronavirus outbreak has affected the entire world in more ways than one. Some people assume that it has only been awful in countries with high COVID-19 cases in the last few months, but it is practically the same everywhere. That is especially true when they have closed their borders, and the exporters and importers in other countries cannot operate due to it.
Despite that, we know that one thing can save us all: a vaccine. Research experts have been proposing and trying different kinds of drugs, hoping that it can immunize everyone, but nothing is written in stone yet. It will be incredible if an effective vaccine comes soon since it will:
Free Everyone From Their Houses
The first issue with not having a vaccine available is that many people cannot leave the house in fear of catching the coronavirus. After all, a significant number of individuals are technically immune-compromised due to their existing conditions like diabetes, cancer, and autoimmune disorders. Others—expectant mothers, children, and senior citizens—cannot go out because their immunity is not optimal. The result is that they have been stuck at home for months; even when the country opens the borders, it remains inadvisable for them to live normally.
Once there is already a vaccine in the market, everyone can shield themselves against the virus. No one needs to worry about catching it because you will technically be immune to it. Thus, men, women, and children can finally go out, regardless of their health status.
Let Kids Go To School Again
Young students have not had it easy during their last couple of months because of the pandemic. The reason is that they have had to transition to homeschooling sometime in March without being able to get used to the idea of doing it. The parents cannot blame the schools, though, since they are merely acting according to the current situation. It is better for the kids to study at home than mingle with each other while there isn’t a vaccination against the coronavirus.
Nevertheless, I can already imagine how much the children will celebrate when a vaccine becomes available. They may have enjoyed staying at home for some time, but they are undoubtedly bored as well since they are forbidden to go anywhere else. With a vaccine ready, these kids can go to school and play with their friends again.
Prevent Workers From Losing Jobs
Another major problem in every part of the world is the rising unemployment rate. Like the schools, the companies may have no choice but to let go of their employees, considering they have been unable to operate during the lockdown. In truth, only the medical and food industries continued to thrive at this time, while the rest had to close their stores and offices. Therefore, within two months or so, their expenses became higher than their sales, so they couldn’t retain all the workers.
However, when there is an existing vaccine, those failing companies can function fully again. They will never as many hands on deck as possible; that’s why they cannot sack the employees. Besides, they won’t have to do that when the money starts to flow into the business.
As mentioned above, a vaccine against the coronavirus was still not invented at the time of this writing. Every country has the best researchers working on it right now, but it still needs to subject the potential drugs to clinical trials before mass producing it.
While we are all waiting for a vaccine, we should not make it effortless for the virus to enter our immune system. Take your vitamins, wear a mask, wash your hands, and avoid going out for non-essential reasons.
