COVID-19 pandemic to endemic in the next normal is what most of the countries in the world will transit over, as each country in their progress from recovery to reset. Coexisting with the COVID-19 pandemic is the only way to ensure the nation’s survival, except for a surge and spike in the infection cases just like those who are in the front of endemic in next normal.
Some countries can handle it, which does not not mean the rest can copy and execute it the same way, it involves the culture and government execution capability variables for this strategy to work. As if mishandling, it will result in another round of total lockdowns, where not all markets can cope with wave after wave of the failure to contain COVID-19 pandemic and move toward endemic too early.
As all known, the lifecycle of disease includes outbreak, epidemic, pandemic and endemic. COVID-19 is a pandemic that spreads across many countries and many continents around the world. The word “endemic” comes from the Greek endēmos, which means “in population”. An endemic virus is relatively constant in a population with largely predictable patterns. When during that stage, this is where adaptive coexistence makes sense, the key control is critical illness by disease, how many cases for new and ongoing infections, just like flue, not really brothers and over reacting. Unless another round of “COVID-19 evolved” that makes any current vaccines ineffective, the world is expected to move toward COVID-19 endemic, coexist with it, on a global basis. What matters is the date is whether Q4 or somewhere in 2022. Most of the country we can see the impact for lack of travel and tourism, already close down the business, due to banking and financial sector do not interest for financing it further at this period of time, regardless of the enterprise size. As with anything, a single huge corporation collapse will create a strong domino effect impacting the rest, this is why the banking and financial sector is conservative in that aspect.
So, COVID-19 pandemic to endemic in the next normal, which means it will continue to circulate in pockets of the global population for years to come, are you prepared for the strategy of how to coexist with it? If you are not, you better have a plan for it now.
