Even if the quarantine ends, there will be an adaptation problem for a while
 

For almost 6 months now, the whole world has been fighting the coronavirus. In most areas, activity has almost completely stopped. Many areas have gone bankrupt, and some are on the verge of bankruptcy. Scientists have not yet found a vaccine, which seems to be the only way out. According to experts, the world will continue to fight the virus for some time. Even if the spread of the virus narrows, it will take some time to return to normal life.
Many countries are currently experiencing a second wave of pandemics. Some have applied strict quarantine. The use of masks and gloves, maintaining social distance has become a priority. Those who do not follow these rules are severely punished. Against this background, people hope that these difficult living conditions will soon end, and they will return to their former way of life. But it seems that it will not be so quick and easy to return to the previous life. Some rules will become a habit in our daily lives.
A report on Spain says that despite the restrictions on the movement being lifted in the country, it is too early to talk about a return to normal life. A new decree passed by Congress regulates the rules of conduct that must be followed in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus. These measures are aimed at preventing a second wave of the virus in the country. The decree states that people over the age of 6 are still required to wear masks. You need to wear a mask not only on public transport but also if the person who does not live with you is in your car. Also, it is necessary to wear a mask on the streets, in open spaces, or any closed areas of public use. An important point of the law is maintaining a social distance of 1.5 meters. In hotels and restaurants, including terraces, the distance between people (both employees and customers) should not be less. The amount of the fine for violation of these rules will depend on the degree of violation and the risk it may cause.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House’s infectious disease expert, also surprised everyone with his statements during a briefing on the fight against the virus in the United States. Answering questions from reporters at the White House, Fauci answered questions on when life will return to normal. "If back to normal means acting like there never was a coronavirus problem, I don’t think that is going to happen until we have a situation where you can completely protect the population,” said Fauci.
But what do local experts think on this issue, when will we return to normal living conditions, what problems may we face, what rules should we change into our way of life? 
According to surgeon-endocrinologist of the Azerbaijan Medical University's Educational-Surgical Clinic, Doctor of Medicine Azer Hummatov, it is impossible to say the exact time on this issue. "Medical workers are at the forefront of the fight against the disease. It is very difficult to work without stopping for 8 hours in special protective equipment. There are doctors and medical staff who cannot see their families, relatives, and children for months. It would be very good if our citizens think about the well-being of doctors. The sanitary-epidemiological situation is indeed under control as a result of the measures taken and the persistent struggle of doctors. Unfortunately, the irresponsibility of citizens is reflected in the growing number of infections. I call on them not to undermine the work of medical workers who work tirelessly for hours. The easing of the restrictions of the special quarantine regime, even the end of the quarantine regime after a while, does not mean a return to the previous way of life. We need to think about the health of ourselves and our loved ones for a while, follow the recommendations, and wear a medical mask. We must make compliance with sanitation and hygiene norms our way of life,” he said. 
According to psychologist Aysel Gurbanova, it will take some time for people to return to their previous way of life, both physiologically and psychologically. "If you remember, in the early days, when the quarantine regime was applied, it was difficult for people to get used to it. Serious aggression and depression were observed in people. It is too early to say when the situation will improve and people will return to their previous living conditions. Because it is known that COVID-19 still threatens the world, which affects people both psychologically and physiologically. If there is easing of the quarantine, even if it is over, there will be a problem of adaptation for a while. Now some people work from home and will have difficulty returning to the office. They will get tired quickly. Because they are accustomed to being at home, going out, and spending some energy can be exhausting. But it will be fine and people will get used to it. As for habits, people, regardless of location, will pay special attention to hygiene rules and will follow them wherever they go. They will especially pay attention to this in catering establishments,” she said.
