Till 2022, World Will Never Be Fully Lockdown Free - Experts

However, no matter how desperate we might feel during this crucial phase, it looks like this lockdown life is not going away anytime soon. This is according to a conversation with Wired’s Editor in Chief Nicholas Thompson and Senior Correspondent Adam Rogers, where he mentioned a study that warns of an oscillating effect if the lockdown is lifted entirely, the curve that was once flattened will spike again, and result in another lockdown.

According to the study they quote, this oscillating effect of lockdown followed by COVID-19 spike followed by lockdown again will be a constant cycle till 2022, which definitely isn’t something that people want to hear right now.
Researchers stated in their study, “The cycle reduces the reproduction number R by a combination of reduced exposure time and a resonance effect where those infected during workdays reach peak infectiousness during lockdown days.”
