If I had a time machine

I can never forget, in January last year, my mom and I went to Wuhan for travelling: visiting the Yellow Crane Tower, eating local food … At that time, we knew nothing about the COVID-19 pandemic. Now we vaccinate ourself, and follow the government’s orders.

But I still ask myself: When can I go abroad and visit the world? When can I take off my mask and breathe freely? I thought for a long, long time ... Suddenly one day, I had a time machine, I got onto it and came to 2031. At that time, I step into a hospital and become a doctor. At present, the pain in the neck — COVID-19 — has been controlled by human beings as technology is developing fast. We have developed a new coronavirus special effects drug. Not only can injections be given, but patients can also choose to use other treatments.

At that time, regardless of age, the COVID-19 is as easy to cure as the common cold, and we will not be afraid of the virus. Humans have invented tiny smart chips that automatically identify virus variants by high-speed computing and treat them with specific treatments.

At that time, human and viruses can live harmoniously together. I treat some patients with COVID-19 daily, men and women, young and elderly, but none of them are frightened, even though they are coughing and having fevers, they still believe that I can treat them well, they come in admiring. I first take out the chip, quickly analyze the types of COVID-19 they’ve got, recommend the suitable treatment, and also give specific to their close contactors.

I work diligently for a long time, and, the virus slowly disappeared. COVID-19 has been controlled perfectly in 2031, it will never bother human beings again, and, finally, they will return to the place where they should have been at first.
