Given the persistent severity and continuing spread of the COVID-19 pandemic in too many communities, some people may find it very difficult to peer around the corner at a post COVID-19 world. Yet, that time will come, preferably sooner rather than later, but in reality in a longer than liked period.
Via a likely viable and affordable vaccine or after more gruesome deaths and even greater infections of COVID-19 to reach a global herd-immunity, humanity will emerge on the other side of this Novel Coronavirus pandemic. On getting there with renewed hopes to conquering new frontiers, humanity should be mindful that there cannot be any return to the yesterday of pre-COVID-19.
The time of the virus should hopefully serve as an eye-opener and as a reality to humanity that the fearful virus cry: "we are all in this together", with every action by each individual affecting the life and well being of all communities, clearly inferring global equality and cooperation in order to assure continuity of the human species amid the deadly pathogen.
With the willing cooperation of the many peoples of the world in the fight against the common enemy, COVID-19, empathy and equality for all have been embraced. Therefore, in moving forward to new frontiers post COVID-19, historical wrongs should be made right as the new world order reflects a true representation of the many peoples when racial equality and social justice should become the norms and not perpetrated as the farces of the pre-COVID-19 era.
