yeah I think this really is key. in the US I don't think people have really had that guard up for significant lengths of time tbh, it has been mostly guard down at least in midwest areas
on the bright side, I think this next major spike coupled with hopefully a vaccine (even a 70% successful one )by early next year and in ~6months maybe we can get closer to 'normal' in regards to world as a whole opening up
Yes, I made this conjecture that the time spent indoors might be an important factor back in June, when cases suddenly started to soar in Arizona/Texas/Florida while they went down in the north. Similarly, we're now seeing places like WI, MN or the Dakotas surge first.
Regarding a vaccine: my hope is that vaccines will be out of the trial phase in early 2021, so that we can start distributing them before the 'end of winter wave' expected for March. We will have to somehow get through the current 'fall wave'.This post was edited by Black XistenZ on Oct 23 2020 10:36pm
