How will physical distancing end if COVID19 will eventually be a flu that comes and goes like the common cold?

    Yes it will.  It will happen the same way it's always happened in the past.  Either a vax will become available or the disease will become less deadly (or both, you never know), and people will go back to normal.  

    While nobody alive has been through a pandemic before (last one was 100 years ago), this isn't the first time it's ever happened.  Throughout human history, one plague or another has ravaged humankind every 50 to 70 years or so.  They all ended the same way, where everyone said "well thank God that's over" and went right back to life as usual.
