There's been a lot of guesswork about how long it'll take for life to get back to normal after COVID-19.

Six months is a timeframe that has come up in recent policy responses, but it could last twice that.

The dilemma at the core of this pandemic has always been whether societies would be willing to pay the price to save lives.

Professor Tony Blakely, from Melbourne School of Population and Global Health, Centre for Epidemiology and Biostatistics discusses the options with ABC's The Signal.
