Wikipedia: COVID-19 pandemic
The COVID-19 pandemic, also known as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing global pandemic of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The novel virus was first identified from an outbreak in Wuhan, China, in December 2019. Attempts to contain failed, allowing the virus to spread to other areas of Asia and later worldwide. The World Health Organization (WHO) declared the outbreak a public health emergency of international concern on 30 January 2020 and a pandemic on 11 March 2020.

I just wonder how many of the #COVIDIFICATION related changes will stick ie substantively change the   underlying mechanisms of the way we learn teach and assess

Can I Stop Isolating If I鈥檓 Still Testing Positive for the Virus?
Some people may test positive for the coronavirus for 10 days or longer, but interpreting those results remains difficult, experts said.

The Covidification of Influenza
As the relevance of SARS-2 recedes ever further, public health managers seek to apply the same risk magnification, testing, vaccination and hygiene regime to the flu.

Nov 30, 2022
Two weeks ago, NBC News posted a long and disturbing article about 鈥淲hat Covid taught scientists and the public about the flu.鈥 It鈥檚 basically as bad as you can imagine. It taught them that 鈥淔lu transmission can be stopped鈥 and thus that 鈥淣onpharmaceutical interventions work,鈥 that 鈥淔lu can spread via aerosols,鈥 that 鈥溾楲ong flu鈥 may be a risk,鈥 that 鈥淎symptomatic flu infections may be underappreciated鈥 and that 鈥淧eople want to test 鈥 and they鈥檙e good at it.鈥 In short, scientists have learned that if an excess of hygiene hysteria can be stirred up over one unremarkable virus, it can be stirred up over another, and there鈥檚 every reason to hope for a new pandemic party in the near future.
