After about a year, since March 2020, Bangladesh has now gone into a second lockdown in view of the worsening Covid-19 situation. Just as the vaccines have been rolled out, the world is observing yet another wave of the pandemic. Countries have higher numbers of infected people and more casualties. The emergency situation has forced several countries to opt for lockdowns and to announce strict measures. The severity of the coronavirus pandemic once again reminds us just how uncertain the recovery from this illness has become. New strains of the virus have spread fast within and across countries. The initiation of vaccination had brought hope for humanity to be done with the pandemic gradually. But it seems the virus is still here to stay for some time more. Many experts have of course cautioned time and again that we may not expect the strength of the coronavirus to decline before 2022. Some have also warned that the coronavirus may not be wiped out fully and could continue to prevail and affect people, but that the variant may become weaker over time and the fatality rate may decline.
