    By "over" what do you mean?  When it will just "disappear"? 

    Never, until there's a vaccine, and even then, it may mutate, and we'll need MORE vaccines.  However, it may become less problematic, it may mutate into a less harmful form, more similar to ordinary flus, so getting an annual vaccine may not be absolutely necessary unless you are elderly or have an underlying health condition.

    But it's not just going to "go away" without any sort of vaccine, and we don't have one yet.

    If you mean, when can we open up completely?  We're doing that now but slowly, and it may be several months before we can return to "normal".  Again, though, we may not be able to do it without a vaccine.

    So, the answer to your question is, "We can't be sure."

    Here's what some infectious disease and epidemiology experts have to say:

    In 2030 or 2040.

    It will be over when it is over

    Never until at least 66% of the world's population  has received  an effective vaccine

    Two weeks, cases will continue to fall. It was here before they realized and we will be at heard immunity very soon.

    It will never be over until we get a Vaccine for it.

    It IS over.

    At least it is as over as the 1918 SPANISH flu you have known as the seasonal flu your entire life.

    It will never be "over".  But humans (and other animals) can build a resistance to it.
