What is your judgment about the current status of the pandemic?

Tang: The appearance of the Omicron variant seems to be quickly changing the course of the pandemic. Omicron is extremely infectious, and in countries where the variant currently prevails will soon come to an end stage as population immunity increases due to natural infection and vaccination. In other words, the pandemic may end much sooner than we previously anticipated. This would leave us an important question: Are we prepared for a new world in which COVID-19 is endemic? How should we readjust our strategies by then?
