2020 has been a year of uncertainty, difficulty, bereavement, and hospitalisation from the tight grip of mankind’s biggest enemy of the 21st century, COVID-19. Alas, the race is reaching the finish line. Pharmaceutical companies and researchers have discovered the much-awaited vaccine which is said to have the potential of providing immunity against the COVID-19 virus. The battle seems to be won, but it is met by conspiracists just as it was in the beginning of the virus itself, however, we breathe a sigh of relief. Health experts warn us against getting overwhelmed by the discovery of the vaccine and further embark on irresponsible activities and ignore health and government guidelines. Despite this great milestone, the numbers of infection continue to rise resulting into the strict tier system now serving as a form of local lockdown with the latest introduction of Tier-4.
