We don’t know what the future will hold as far as COVID-19 goes. But there’s hope that eventually the coronavirus will not cause deaths as it does for many people now, but instead nothing more than a common cold. In a study published in the journal Science, Emory and Penn State researchers studied data from other coronaviruses, including the first SARS virus. They believe that COVID-19 will ultimately look like other common childhood infections. Our first exposure to the virus is worst because we have no prior immunity to it. In the coming years, we could see people getting the virus for the first time as a child, and then getting it multiple times as an adult. They also believe that getting your first exposure to happen by vaccination is best for the population to develop herd immunity.
