The Ending Time of the COVID-19 Pandemic in 2021
2021 New Variants of COVID-19
The estimated world population at the end of 2020 is around 7,800,000,000. According to World Health Organization (WHO) on February 5, 2021, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 is more than 104,000,000 and the total of deaths is 2,271,180. That means 1.3% of the world population has been infected COVID-19 and the mortality rate of infected people is 2.1%.
The United States has reached 27,400,000 coronavirus cases including 470,418 deaths on February 5, 2021. The United States controlled the pandemic well last summer. But coronavirus began to spread again in October. United States had many people gatherings without wearing masks during the 2020 US presidential race. The daily confirmed cases started to climb up last November and daily deaths went up 4,000 in January.
COVID-19: Coronavirus Cases and Deaths
The United States rolled out coronavirus vaccines in December 2020. President Joe Biden has promised to provide 100 million covid-19 vaccinations in his first 100 days in office. The infected cases began to decline in late January. But the daily deaths are still more than 3000 in early February.
Another challenge to the vaccines is the new variants of the SARS-CoV-2 virus that causes COVID-19 from the U.K., Brazil, and South African. Can the United States vaccines work for the new mutations? Vaccine manufacturers are looking into creating booster shots to improve protection against new variants. We hope new variants won't become a big issue.
2021 is the Year of the Metal Ox or Golden Cow. It starts on February 3, 2021. We would like to forecast when the coronavirus will stop threatening our health in 2020 using the Chinese Astrology Stem-Branch calendar. We did a similar forecast for the COVID-19 last year. Most Asian countries did well in controlling the pandemic by last summer. But the USA missed the opportunities since the policy of wearing facial masks.
Five Elements and the COVID-19 in 2020
COVID-19 was discovered at the end of 2019, which is the Earth Pig year. Pig is in the Water group. Winter is a wonderland for viruses to survive because of lower humidity and less sunlight. 2020 is the year of the Yang-Metal Rat . Metal is connected to the lung or wind. Yang-Metal of 2020 is connected to strong wind, dry air, or spreading. The Rat of 2020 is connected to cold water or cold weather. The cool humidity and dry climate help coronavirus to spread globally. Therefore, we can say that the coronavirus grows in the Water environment and spreads in the Metal environment.
Yang-Metal of 2020 is triggered in April, Yang-Metal Dragon month. The cycle of the Yang-Metal stopped in October, the month of the Yang-Fire Dog. The major spread-out is from April to October by the wind power of the Yang-Metal.
The winter of 2020 was in charge by the Water of Rat. November is the Pig month; December is the Rat month. COVID-19 evolved and mutated to SARS-CoV-2 variants during the winter.
Five Elements and 2021 SARS-CoV-2 Variants
2021 is the year of the Yin-Metal Cow . Yang-Metal is connected to strong wind. Yin-Metal of 2021 is connected to slow flowing air current, dirty air, or virus. Yin-Metal of 2021 is triggered in February, Yang-Metal Tiger month. The cycle of the Yin-Metal stopped in August, Fire Monkey month or in September, Fire Chicken month. This is because Metal is afraid of Fire. This implies the coronavirus should be suppressed by September, 2021.
In Chinese Astrology, the Cow of 2021 is also called the Storeroom of the Metal. September is the month of the Chicken. The Cow and Chicken have an attractive relationship. The element inside the Chicken is the Yin-Metal. That means Yin-Metal will be locked in the Storeroom of the Metal. But the virus is still alive.
What if the virus continues to spread after September 2021?
Sometimes, people miss their opportunities. They have to wait for the next chance. Yin-Metal will reactive in Metal Rat month of December, or in Metal Cow month of January 2022. It will end in June of 2022, Fire Horse month or in July of 2022, Fire Sheep . Horse and Sheep are in the Fire group. They will take care of the coronavirus in the summer of 2022.
2022 is the Water Tiger Year. Tiger contains Yang Wood, Yang Fire, and Yang Earth. Water Tiger is Water surrounding the Wood, that is a boat on the river or a sailing ship at sea. That is a sign of exploration, adventure, challenge, risk, caution, hope, and start-up. Tiger is the beginning cycle of the Wood. Water Tiger will bring a new world to people. The Yin Metal of the virus will step down from the stage. Tiger is connected to the growing tree. The world will focus on economic growth.
