I hope you all had a good Christmas and good end of year 2020. We start the year 2021 with cautious hope, as COVID vaccine starts being administered to hospital staff and vulnerable elderly people.
In 2020, we learned how to live with the covid-19 pandemic. There's little doubt that we have to keep up our skills, at least for the first half of 2021, as greater swaths of the population get vaccinated. The vaccine, coupled with all our efforts so far, is our best tool against pushing back the parvasive spread of covid 19. It still remains hard to predict the outcome, as there are many factors at play, including vaccine acceptance by the public and viral mutation and resistance.
