The sudden influx of vaccines from various countries, such as China, Russia, USA, etc. has made people think that the pandemic is over. However, that is far from truth according to Israel Figa, who believes that the pandemic is not over at all. According to him, the time it will take to vaccinate everyone against the coronavirus is a lot and people are not mentally prepared for that. He believes that the sudden surge in optimism and the calls of pandemic being over are resulting from a variety of factors, but the end result of such beliefs will not be good.
Why People Are Thinking the Pandemic Is Over
As per Israel Figa, the world has been restless about the current conditions for a long time now. It’s been more than one a half year since people have been seeing the virus spread around them. They had never lived in these conditions before, and that’s what’s bothering them. According to Israel Figa, the restlessness in people is more from the lockdown conditions that have confined them to their houses. There was a time when people could just get ready, comb their hair, and leave home for whatever they wanted to do.
However, people took those things for granted and only the pandemic was able to make them realize those things. It’s the freedom that people used to have just two years ago that they are craving.
Now, another reason for people to believe that the pandemic is over is coming from the media. The media is all about spreading news that catches people’s attention. Such news is not always 100% correct, but at least it gets the attention of the people to the channel, right? So, that’s happening at the moment. The media is spreading news about the pandemic in hopes of people becoming more optimistic about their futures. However, in doing so, the media is giving people false hope too early. It is not to say that the pandemic will not be over, but not as soon as people have started to believe.
Lastly, people had been waiting for the vaccination to arrive to rid them of the coronavirus. The coming of these vaccinations has made people believe that the cure has arrived. What they don’t realize is that vaccination will take quite a lot more time than they are thinking before it is administered to everyone.
Patience Is the Key
As per Israel Figa, patience is the need of the hour. You can’t really call yourself a successful survivor of a pandemic if you don’t make it without catching it and not causing harm to others. If you are not patient and catch the virus, and then you become healthy again, you won’t be able to call yourself successful. You never know how many people you might have infected until you found out that you had caught the virus too.
So, the most important thing here is to know that the vaccination is out and is being administered in many countries. The seniors are the ones getting the shots first and then others will be vaccinated as well. Once the conditions get better in the developed nations, the other small nations will start seeing the vaccination arriving to them as well. What’s making the process slower is that even the biggest and most developed nations of the world are struggling with everything right now, and that’s why they have not been able to help other smaller nations.
The pandemic is not over, but it will be over, and that’s all you have to know right now. More importantly, it will be over when you take care of all the precautionary measures and standard operating procedures. Keep yourself isolated as of now, wear a mask, and keep distance from the people until everyone around you has been vaccinated. If you can do that for a few more months, the coronavirus pandemic will become history without a doubt.
