A former professor, Dr. William Haseltine, at Harvard University’s public and medical health schools, told a media outlet, CNN, that sticking all our hopes on the vaccine that works abruptly is not the right strategy.

 Haseltine described that a comprehensive public health plan is a better path to control the blowout of the Coronavirus along with the support of the vaccine and therapeutic medicines. Instructing face masks can help, but he said that we require a lot more than face masks to prevent that pandemic that is running across their country, such as freight train.

He suggested shutting down bars and other locations where young ones meet at night and even restrict massive gatherings in the severely hit areas. He continued that our life will not get any better until we make major alterations to our behavior, and public health services come with further resources.
