From the vote it's clear that it's going to be a discussion for a while, not to the same degree it is now obviously, but the conspiracies will come just like people talk still talk about 9/11. But at some point it's going to turn into "regular" news and that point is hopefully going to be long after this thread is closed. I think personally it should be moved to back burner once all (or most) countries relieve their restrictions.
With the amount of underhanded moves that were done by politicians and countries. I really don't blame anyone for having wacky thoughts about this whole thing.

My opinion this board goes dormant Q4 2021, even if a vaccine is released in Q1.

I think there will be changes due to Corona that are not necessarily bad or good, but just different. For example - working from home will be a much more available option for a long time to come. We may find that people will choose to be outdoors more often for dining, parties, etc - I'm definitely loving the option. How about homeschooling? Nursing homes might not be so popular. Moving out of cities as others have mentioned - already hearing many people have moved to Deal for good, their schools are overflowing with new students. We will still be videoconferencing 10x more than we did pre-corona. I've seen many practical and clever uses of Zoom that I believe will definitely stick.

Because you can't build trust over Zoom. And they've been saying this for decades.

Can't wait to fly back to China, the productivity of meeting the factory in person is huge.

1918 Spanish flu was far more deadly than COVID19 so far. What did that change long term other than all of the casualties? It was mostly an afterthought until now.
How long after the 1918 Spanish Flu did the DDF Board about it get closed?

It's still open to members who participated when it was current.

Seriously speaking I'm sure it was talked about in the years after, I believe Dan's point was that nothing lasts forever.

I was about to ping a certain member who often talks about his grandchildren, but I don't want to start up with anyone, especially not someone 75 years older than me.
