Covid-19 : one year already !

On March 11, 2020, the WHO declared that the world was indeed facing a “pandemic”, after having warned at the end of January of the danger of the virus, which appeared in Wuhan (China) in November 2019.
Since then, we all know the story, our lives have been turned upside down: confinement, barrier gestures, masks, social distancing, reduced travel, telecommuting, political, economic and social chaos, widening inequalities … and 2.6 million victims worldwide (including half a million in the United States, the most affected country).
Despite the appearance of the famous variants, the arrival of anti-covid vaccines on the market, since the end of 2020, opens the horizon. In many countries, however, vaccination campaigns are still hampered by a shortage of doses, delays in delivery, and logistical difficulties in the field, while the most disadvantaged countries do not even have access to vaccines, despite the efforts of the WHO’s COVAX program.
When will things be back to normal? The most optimistic are aiming for the end of 2021, others for 2024. The day will come when humanity will overcome this pandemic. Until the next one!
