(ConservativeStar.com) – Trying to get a firm idea of what the future holds is, at best, very difficult with something like COVID-19 and all the variables it brings to the table. The deadly virus hasn’t been very predictable thus far, so there is no reason to believe that will change. The way America responds to it is another story.
President Donald Trump’s “Operation Warp Speed” helped scientists develop a vaccine in less than a year. In 2021, those Americans who want it will be able to get one. The FDA has also approved a number of therapeutics that will help more people survive the illness. In 2020, scientists were developing the medications, but in 2021, we likely see more widespread use.
FDA approves and issues an EUA TO REGENERON’s REGN-COV2 monoclonal antibody.
Expect to have 80K by End of November
Another 200,000 by first week of January, and 300,000 doses in total by end of January 2021

Unfortunately, 2021 will probably also see a rise in COVID-19 vaccine scams. The FBI has already warned Americans to look out for criminals using the virus to steal money and personal information.
In short, all there are challenges that lie ahead, we will get through them just like we did in 2020. The new year is already shaping up to be much better on the COVID-19 front with vaccines and medications available to those who want them. And we all have President Donald Trump to thank for the progress.
