People always say in hard times that "this too shall pass". Is it right for COVID-19 pandemic (please see what I mean by pandemic here. My English is a bit weak so this word might not be right) as well?

I know we can't predict whether there will be a vaccine or not, ever or the coronavirus will vanish (and eventually the disease) after some years.

But I guess this question can be answered as it is more about the pandemic.

Actually I'm not really sure about the word pandemic here. So let me explain what I want to know in following way:

What I mean is that most of the world wearing masks, maintaining social distancing, washing hands frequently, having a state of constant fear about getting infected anytime (unlike other diseases), working from home, not partying with friends in groups, hospitals full of patients and dead bodies on roads... Will these things remain forever in most parts of world Or will it end to a great extent and life will become almost normal like before, maybe after 5-10-25 years later (let's assume there's no other similar disease like this in future)?

Or this statement is very true for this pandemic as well... This too shall pass?

    According to Rusia enviará a América Latina su medicamento contra el covid-19 is for prevention, diagnosis and treatment. 90% of efficacy. The disease is reduced from 9 to 4 days, the high fever was reduced from 6 to 3 days and 65% of the patients were recovered from COVID-19 in 4 days. ((Sorry for my bad translation)) – I likeThatMeow Jul 11 '20 at 21:51
