Historically pandemics always have multiple waves with the 2nd wave being the worst. This pandemic appears to be following that pattern. The good news from that is later waves tended to much less severe before the virus burns itself out. If it remains true to form then next year should see a return to normality for most people and business's. Fingers crossed.
