Canada – Physical Distancing And Mask Wearing For 2-3 Years, Even With Social Distancing And Masks for Two To Three Years, Even With Vaccine

Physical distancing, mask-wearing could be in place for 2-3 years even with vaccine, Tam warns

Canadians shouldn’t expect a COVID-19 vaccine to be a “silver bullet” that will bring a swift end to the coronavirus pandemic and a return to normal, according to the country’s chief public health officer.

Dr. Theresa Tam used her briefing on Tuesday in Ottawa to temper expectations about the speed and effectiveness of a vaccine. She reiterated the importance of physical distancing, proper hand hygiene and mask-wearing, and attempted to dispel any notion that a vaccine will make life go back to the way it was in a couple of months.

“We can’t at this stage just put all of our focus [on a vaccine] in the hopes that this is the silver bullet solution,” said Tam.

“We’re going to have to manage this pandemic certainly over the next year, but certainly [we are] planning for the longer term of the next two to three years during which the vaccine may play a role but we don’t know yet.”

Tam said it’s unclear at this stage how effective a vaccine will be. She said key questions remain about the degree and duration of immunity a vaccine will provide, the dosage that will be needed and whether it will prevent people from getting infected altogether or simply prevent severe illness requiring hospitalization. – cbc news

Social distancing and masks for two to three years? Good luck with that.

Remember when wearing a mask was considered dangerous?  Not recommended by the WHO, CDC, Canadian governments and their health experts?  Remember that?

Well. I am going to go out on a limb and predict that before the end of the year, HCQ plus Zinc will be given the green light for pubic use. People will be encouraged to use it.
