As coronavirus vaccinations takes off all over the world, countries are beginning to open their airspace and a lot of people definitely looking forward to travelling —like booking that long-awaited flight to visit family, friends and business partners they haven’t seen since the pandemic or that destination spot they always wanted to be.
Health officials have warned that coronavirus precautions should be adhered to as vaccination is not a free pass to going back to pre-covid travel styles. This is greatly due to the undetermined degree to which vaccinated people can transmit coronavirus (you know, all that reservations and unanswered questions you and I have about the vaccine????).
So, until everyone is fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or it is proven that vaccination prevents transmission, vaccinated people will need to continue masking, keeping their palms clean and social distancing to protect themselves and those who are unvaccinated.
But hey, we came here to talk about some good news which we think might be the next post-covid phase and they include;
- Being able to move confidently (you know like psychologically you just feel safe because you have taken the vaccine).
- More travelling, like flying to places that have lifted restrictions for vaccinated individuals… hope you have your card?????
- Gathering with other vaccinated people????. Me thinks… this will be the next requirement to be allowed in some settings.
Long story short (cos this whole thing is as confusing to me as it is to you????), it just means that vaccinated people do spread the virus, and adhering to most covid-19 rules is likely here to stay until global herd immunity is reached—which is unlikely to occur this year, according to the World Health Organization.
So people, keep being safe and protected!
