I have great expectations that an effective and safe vaccine will become available by the end of this year or early next year. As I have said before, I expect a return to our previous normal in the next year or so, without masks and distancing. I envision a world where this vaccine becomes part of our normal routine, just as the yearly flu vaccine is.
