How Epidemics End (bostonreview.net)

From what I gather the author is trying to say is that it will become endemic and thus "end".

Way too long winded and convoluted.

I'm reading "On Writing Well" by William Zinsser. I highly recommend it to any subject matter experts who want to improve their written communication. Regardless of expertise, opaque writing makes it too hard for people to understand the author's point. This article is a prime example.

Thank you, I was reading the article too trying to get the point and failing to do so.

Perhaps that is the point, that it drags on with no discernable end.
