Very interesting question ..seen online ... rubschin:

"Is there any virologists out there that can answer me this question...
If the world goes into a lockdown and it brings an end to Covid 19, will it also bring an end to other viruses such as Chickenpox, Flu, Common Cold etc for a sustained period?

Edit: I am in no way comparing Covid 19 to these other viral infections.
I am merely asking if social distancing will also have an effect on other viruses.

There is no real historical precedent for this, where the entire planet has implemented social distancing.
Surely other viruses will be hit hard by these measures too."

It is a good question, but I suspect the answer is 'no'.

The isolation will not eliminate Covid 19, it will just slow the rate of spread so that the relatively small proportion of serious cases which require hospitalisation will not all occur in a short period of time and overrun the healthcare system.

I think the reality is that it will persist in the population until it runs out of non-resistant victims and the morbidity rate will stay about the same, but the daily numbers will reduce and be less newsworthy.

I mostly despair
