If you have a friend that would benefit from a simple to understand explanation about what comes next with COVID-19, you might want to suggest that they watch Ellen DeGeneres interview Bil Gates: 

"We had epidemics like the Ebola epidemic in Africa that should have gotten us ready. Then we had Zika. But a respiratory pandemic that's very widespread, we haven't seen anything like this for 100 years. I thought that the anniversary of 1918 would galvanize people as well."

"things] won't be back to normal until we have that phenomenal vaccine or therapeutics that are over 95 percent effective." He added that "we have to assume that's going to be almost 18 months from now."
