When will the novel coronavirus pandemic be over?

The initial spike in fear is starting to peter out, says health psychologist Dana Rose Garfin, Ph.D., an assistant adjunct professor in the school of nursing at the University of California, Irvine who’s currently researching the social impacts of the pandemic. … “If there’s one thing that has made this really distressing for people, it’s the fact that it’s novel. We don’t know what’s going to happen. And things are constantly changing,” Garfin says.
