There is no set period for a pandemic to end. It is likely to subside gradually as the world slowly and unevenly resumes normalcy.
The World Health Organization (WHO) highlights that stark contrasts still undermine progress, with vaccine inequity being one of the most urgent issues, posing a threat to ending the pandemic and global recovery. According to WHO, 75 percent of all vaccine doses have been administered in only ten countries, and the lowest income countries have administered less than 0.5 percent of global doses.
The end of the pandemic is dependent on various factors such as the speed of vaccination rollouts in countries around the globe, the threat of the virus mutating to counteract vaccine efficacy, and vaccine hesitancy among the population. Until these factors are not collectively addressed, it will be hard, if not impossible, to see the tail-end of the pandemic.
For now, except for a handful of wealthy countries, most countries are lagging in vaccinating their populations. However, no one can predict the COVID-19 pandemic's outcome in advance. Pandemic will not end until and unless transmission in every nation is under control.
The COVID-19 pandemic has given rise to a lot of potentially dangerous misinformation. For reliable advice on COVID-19, including symptoms, prevention, and available treatment, please refer to the World Health Organization or your national healthcare authority.
