People don't need to be fooled into thinking life can carry on pre 2019 like COVID never happened as that is not realistic. Like it or not, even if everyone is vaccinated (and that will take a while). We're only at 50% her, some restrictions will remain in place, that's understandable. There has to be enough vaccines to go around and be available to all countries. I have heard from the health department to expect these restrictions for a couple of years at least especially for international travel.
Yeah I agree that a lot of places around the world will unfortunately live with strong restrictions for some times. However, there may be some countries that can almost live normally like pre-covid, where I'm from for example. I hope and pray vaccines will be distributed fairly to everyone on the planet. We're not safe until everyone is safe.
